Medeo & Shymbulak Alpine Sceneries
Visit the two alpine icons of Almaty, starting from the Medeo skating rink and then a funicular ride up to Shymbulak ski resort.
Famed as the highest-altitude sports complex in the world, the Medeo skating rink stands proud at 1,691 meters above sea level, covering over 10,500 square meters with fairytale-like sceneries of fir-covered slopes and Zailiysky Alatau's snow peaks.
Afterwards, you will take a funicular up from Medeo to Shymbulak mountain ski resort. Here, you will have a picturesque view of the Tien Shan mountains. At a jaw-dropping altitude of 2,260 meters above sea level, there is a viewing platform with spectacular sceneries of Tien Shan's majestic mountains.
