Can be seen from quite a distance but this is nothing but a TV tower. The backdrop of the mountains make it more impressive. You can't get near to it when you are on Kok Tobe.

The Almaty Television Tower on Kok-Tobe hil is a big transmitting tower so people can catch all their favorite TV shows. The structure is like most TV towers and you can’t get near this one at all. Hardly worth rating but I did anyway so...More

Visible if you visit Kok Tobe. A tall huge tower, nothing extremely special. A special visit to this tower is not necessary in my opinion.
