15:00 The city tour begins:


Visit the Green Bazaar, one of the city’s oldest markets with a history spanning more than a century. Since 1875, Green Bazaar has been a significant trade hub. Here, visitors may take in the ambience of an oriental bazaar, purchase fresh produce, souvenirs, and local specialties, sample local cuisine, and observe Kazakhstan’s ethnic variety as many of the merchants are Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Tadjiks, Koreans, and Russians.


Visitors can infer a vendor’s nationality from the products they purchase: Kazakhs sell the majority of the fresh dairy and meat, Uzbek and Tadjiks sell the majority of the excellent fresh and dried fruit and vegetables, Koreans sell the majority of the spicy salads and snacks, and Russians sell the majority of the pickles and herbal tea. There will be some free time for guests to go shopping. You will proceed to Rakhat Chocolate Shop after touring the green bazaar. The biggest producer of confectionary goods in Kazakhstan is the Rakhat firm. All goods are produced in accordance with Soviet GOST specifications and the Soviet recipe.


Visit the park honouring the 28 Panfilov guardsmen who sacrificed their lives protecting Moscow when you are in Almaty’s historic district. The park is a popular destination for both city residents and tourists, and it has a number of fascinating artefacts from Kazakhstan’s Soviet era. Visitors will view Ascension Cathedral, a stunning structure built in 1907. Despite not using any nails during construction, the cathedral escaped the earthquake of 1911 with just a little damage.


The 1,620-metre-long cableway takes 6 minutes to traverse, and during that time you may observe city life from above. Directly under you are lush gardens, private homes, and limitless skyscrapers. The city will gradually reveal a new side to you; it is a genuinely remarkable experience. The upper station is situated on Kok Tobe Park, which serves as a sort of “gateway” to the world of pristine air, friendliness, and endless joy. 


Transfer to the hotel following the outing


10:00 The journey begins with a meeting with our guide in the hotel lobby, followed by a drive to the Medeo tract (1690 meters above sea level), where you will change to the gondola route and ascend the Shymbulak mountain resort. You will arrive at the first level of the mountain resort (2260 metres above sea level) after a dizzying 20-minute cable car journey above the tops of coniferous trees, where you will uncover a breathtaking view of the mountains and the beauty around them. Mountains have a certain ambiance that makes you feel at one with nature.

During this tour, you will visit:


–          Charyn Canyon : Charyn Canyon, located in Charyn National Park, is a unique area of natural and geological interest. It is home to rare and endangered animal species, protected forests, and unique aspen groves. The canyon’s depth is 200m, and its height ranges from 150-300m. It is a monument of nature, formed by sedimentary rocks over 12 million years old. The canyon’s landscapes are breathtaking, with sunsets displaying scarlet, pink, and orange colours and the Charyn River bobbing against the cliffs. The Valley of Castles, resembling a tower, is a popular attraction, with its length and width reaching 20–80 metres.


–          Lake Kolsai: The Kolsay Lakes in Kazakhstan are a natural wonder with three distinct zones and a diverse range of rare plants and animals. The river Kolsay originates on a ridge of Kungey-Alatau and flows into three lakes: Top, Mynzholki, and Lower. These lakes are fresh, rigid, and contain sulphate of sodium, with a summer water temperature of +10 degrees. Surrounded by high meadow grasses, fir forests, and a coniferous wood belt, the lakes are deep and popular for camping, trekking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. The nearest village is Saty, located 320 km from Almaty. The lakes are accessible by horseback and can be rented in Saty village. Tourist routes and guest houses are developed on the lakes, offering a peaceful atmosphere and breathtaking mountain landscapes.


–          Black Canyon: Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, located in western Colorado near Montrose, is a national park with 30,750 acres of wilderness. The park is known for its narrow canyons, carved by the Gunnison River over millions of years. The canyon features towering cliff faces of foliated gneiss and schist, including Painted Wall, the tallest cliff in Colorado. The canyon’s vertical nature, with an average drop of 43 feet per mile, makes it one of the steepest mountain descents in North America.
