Apparently, there are day trips to the Tamgaly petroglyphs departing from Almaty. They might be on Sunday's only, and might possibly be in Russian only. Possibly.

Does anyone know if this is so or not. Failing that, does anyone know if public transport goes there? If not, what's the closest public transport goes?

Many thanks.

Has anyone tried the bike hiring server velobike http://velobike.kz/?lang=en in Astana? I wonder if it's any good and what it's like cycling around in Astana?

I was recently in Kazakhstan for 2 weeks, and I never saw any postcards for sale, anywhere. I'd spent 6 days in Astana, but none in Almaty.

I'll be in Almaty soonish, and I'm wondering if anyone knows anywhere in Almaty that sells postcards.

Ta.

Hey all. A friend and I will be renting a car in Almaty and using it to drive around to the natural areas near almaty, such as Charyn Canyon and Kolsai lakes.

  • any recommendations for cheap car rentals in almaty? The cheaper the better, we don't mind driving a clunker around ;)
  • if anyone is in the area during this time and wants a ride (there's not really public transport to these places...) give a shout!

Hey there,

I sign up into this forum just to seek any assistance. I would like to plan to pay a short visit to KZ this December, however, I contacted the KZ embassy in Jakarta, they told me that I need a letter of invitation for visa application, either through a person who is Kazakhstan resident or travel agency.

I have contacted some travel agency, however, they require me to book their tour package at once. I do not want to, because I am planning to stay at my friend house during my visit…

Hi

I'm trying to decide wether to catch a flight or train it from Astana to Almaty. Flight takes about 90mins vs 17hours but I like to know how scenic the ride is. Has anyone done it recently? I'll be going during late August this year.

Thanks in advance!
