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 :)
