It will be a special night.
You will spend the whole night at an altitude of 3300 meters above sea level at the Almaty Space Station. It is very cold here at night - sub-zero temperatures even in mid-July, but such bright and stunning stars seemingly right in front of you will be worth the cold. In the afternoon you will climb to the top of the Big Almaty Peak and you will be able to admire the stunning scenery.
Space Station Activities
The space station is located on the Zhusaly-Kezen pass. It is an active science center studying the physics of sunlight. There is only a handful similar research institutes in the world. Depending on the season, you will spend the night either in the tents or in the heated trailers.
A lake of a stunning beauty
Also on the way you will visit a unique place - Big Almaty Lake, the pearl of Tian Shan, located at an altitude of 2520 meters above sea level. The color of the water in this lake depends on the time of year and day. It can change from bright turquoise to emerald green or back right before your eyes, following the sun.
