Ile-alatau National Park Reviews & Ratings
Great place for a hike. The lake looks like a mirror if you visit early and the wind hasn't started blowing yet. The scenery is quite amazing and the view is worth the trip. You can come with a car most of the way and hike from there. Some areas are restricted.
Beautiful place with a different landscapes within less then an hour of drive from each other. Recommend to visit. You can sleep in a guest house, or can bring your tent. (Proper toilet and shower in the guest house) you can also order a meal there, delicious Kazakh dishes. Very affordable prices . (Note that you need to book the guest house in advance, because it might be busy when you are there)
Beautiful mountains, fantastic views and of course the Big Almaty Lake. Always worth a visit, but take your rubbish home please!
It was amazing! I was overwelmed by the beauty of the mountain. Although it was winter, lots of snow, my impression was in the highest degree. I recommend to go there. Lots of fun, man can slide on the snow
Great wild place. Especially wild on winyer with few people. One can get to 3300 meters by car :)
