The northwestern ridge of the Tien Shan, the Zailiysky Alatau massif, is famous for its picturesqueness and richness of its natural diversity. Medeo and Shymbulak - the favorite places of active recreation for Almaty residents - are located here, and they are always very popular. Combining active recreation and admiring the beautiful scenery is a happy privilege of the residents of the southern capital.
The highest mountain skating rink in the world is very popular with Almaty residents of all ages. A large area of ice cover gives the professional skaters the opportunity to unwind, leaving the center of the rink for children and “dummies”. Here you can always find a cheerful company - on this favorite recreational spot, the townspeople are especially friendly and willing to make new acquaintances.
The ski resort works not only in winter, but also in summer. In the warm season, you can have a nice lunch, enjoy extreme entertainment and just spend a pleasant family day there. A famous cableway leads to Shymbulak, and it offers stunning views of the mountain scenery. The end station of the road is located at an altitude of 3200 meters above sea level.
