Mountains: Trekking and winter sports

A series of high low and middle range mountain ranges – such as the Tien Shan, Altay, Ulytau, and Kazygurt – are naturally beautiful and attract tourists from all over the world. Tourists interested in trekking and winter sports can easily access marvelous landscapes directly from the city of Almaty.

Kazakh’s high mountains are ideal for winter sports. It’s no wonder that Kazakhstan hosted the Asian Winter Games in 2011 – one of the priorities of the country has been to promote winter sports.

A unique sport complex Medeu (sometimes spelled as Medew or Medeo), with a skating rink popular among tourists, was built in the 1950s, at 1,691 meters above sea level, which makes it the highest skating rink in the world.

Another major winter sport attraction of Kazakhstan is Shymbulak (Chimbulak) ski resort, also located not far from Almaty. Snow can be found there from November till May, however, sunny weather is also registered there more than 300 days a year.

Lakes and rivers: water sports, sunbathing 

Kazakhstan is more than its steppes and mountains – it is also a country of rivers and lakes.

The Valley of the Castles in Charyn National Park, about 200 km east of Almaty is another magnificent natural monument built of sedimentary rocks.
