  • Nice view of Almaty. Worth going, but it looked like children's amusement park. One time is enough.
  • What a great view of the city. Unfortunately there was a lot of smog at the time I was here. The animals were looking some distressed and in need of freshwater. It was around 37C . When it got dark the city lights came on and a beautiful sight to take in. Highly recommend you take the gondola ride up. I hope to go again.
