Overview
This tour provides you the best opportunity to see the beautiful mountain surroundings of Almaty city. On sunny days Shymbulak gathers together thousands of visitors. On chairlifts you can reach Talgar Pass (3163 meters above sea level). Only professional skiers climb here since the descent from the pass is too steep. Also alpinists start their climbing from this point.Only the stars are higher.

We arrived to skate with friends in the evening - check times for week days as they are different from the opening times at the weekend. Staff were helpful with the skate hire. The rink is well maintained and felt very festive with its Christmas tree in the children's area.
