Big Almaty peak is visible from any point of the city and is well recognizable. It looks like a huge correct pyramid with the height of 3681.9 m. above sea level. But you can make a simple ascent to Big Almaty Peak from the Big Almaty gorge in one day. To do this, you need to climb on a paved road running from the Big Almaty Lake to Zhosalykezen pass, where the Tien-Shan High Altitude Research Station (Space station) is located. Then move to the north of it and climb up to the summit in an hour on a good path.
