Almaty icons

Tengri - - Destination -

Medeu, the world’s highest ice-skating rink at an altitude of 1,691 metres, is a perennial winter favourite with Almatinians. Because of this it can get jam packed at weekends, but if you can, come on a week day then you may be lucky to have the ice more or less to yourself.

The rink has an early session from 10:00 until 16:00 (15:00 on Wednesday and Thursday) and a late session from 18:00 until 23:00, every day except Monday. It has skate hire and it’s a 30-minute ride from the city on the number 12 bus, which leaves from the stop opposite the Hotel Kazakhstan.
