Destination Info

Kazakhstan is big (see the map, below).  We’re the ninth largest country in the world.  We’re also very empty – plenty of room for our stunning scenery – with a population of only 18 million, we’re only 64th on the list of most populous countries.

To our south are the other -stan countries.  Many visitors combine a visit to Kazakhstan with time in one or more of our four fellow former Soviet Republics, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan too.

TriptoKZ, based in Almaty, Kazakhstan (the red dot on the map) can help you with travel throughout the -stan region.

Almaty City Tour

Almaty is simultaneously ancient and modern, and always an interesting city.

Our tour of the city will show you 19th century architecture, monuments, and magnificent street art, large distinctive modern buildings, and smaller historic structures.

The tour is a great opportunity to understand the history of the city and to see the magnificent landscapes of the Trans-Ili Alatau mountain range immediately outside the city!

During this tour you will reach a height of 10,000 ft (3200 m) above sea level, where you can take unforgettable photos over the city and beyond.

The guided tour is available in a selection of languages and typically starts between 9-10am when you are collected from your hotel, and you’re returned back at the end of the tour, usually between 5-6pm.  The tour is a mix of walking and being driven.

Among highlights are traveling a short distance out of town to the Medeo ice skating rink and Shymbulak ski resort (both fascinating all year round), and within the city, visiting Republic Square, the Panfilovsky Park of 28 Heroes, and the Green Bazaar.
