Lonely Planet review
Independent one-woman operator who has long organised trips for the expat community and offers day hikes, treks and climbs from one day up, drives, kayaking, helicopter flights, night-time tours of Almaty's fountains and more. Her trips are spirited, not too expensive, and a good way to meet locals and expats. Karlygash has no office: contact her by email or phone.
