Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

ALMATY, THE FOR MER CAP­I­TAL OF Kaza­khstan is sit­u­ated at the foot of the north­ern Tien Shan, mak­ing it a par­adise for all kinds of win­ter en­thu­si­asts – as well as for Cen­tral Asian his­tory buffs too! Coun­try Hol­i­days is of­fer­ing a five-day tour which in­cludes vis­its to ma­jor land­marks in the city – Pan­filov Park, Green Bazaar, Repub­lic Square of the Mon­u­ments of In­de­pen­dence and the Cen­tral State Mu­seum, where you can bone up on your Kazakh his­tory and learn about the salient is­sues in lo­cal de­vel­op­ment. Visit the Kok Tobe Hill where the world’s tallest TV tower is lo­cated and stroll along the wind­ing paths of the sur­round­ing park – there’s a mag­nif­i­cent panorama of the city and the moun­tains from here. Then move on to Shym­bu­lak Ski Re­sort which boasts 943 me­tres of ver­ti­cal de­scent and 99 acres of ter­rain with both gen­tle slopes and more chal­leng­ing, longer trails – this is three days that lovers of out-of-the-or­di­nary ski ex­pe­ri­ences wouldn’t want to miss.
