6 Nights 7 Days Kazakhstan Tour Package
A huge country the size of Western Europe, the most economically advanced of the ‘stans’. Almaty is almost reminiscent of Europe with its leafy avenues, chic ALZhiR Museum-Memorial Complex, glossy shopping centres and hedonistic nightlife.
Though Almaty place is not the capital of Kazakhstan anymore, it remains one of the top tourist destinations in the area. It is highlighted by its astonishing buildings, beautiful cars and, above all, beautiful people! Almaty is almost reminiscent of Europe with its leafy avenues, chic ALZhiR Museum-Memorial Complex, glossy shopping centres and hedonistic nightlife.
Set against towering peaks striped with ski runs, Almaty mixes tradition with modern flair. While locals still meet up for steamy Russian baths, traditional Kazakh delicacies, and countless cups of tea, the city's gleaming malls and wild nightclubs are downright futuristic.
Almaty is an extremely safe city. I would say that visiting Almaty is probably safer than visiting many American cities.

The next day is a driving day – you’ll be headed to the giant sand dunes of the Almaty area in Altyn-Emel National Park.
Singing dune is a wonderful place with a lot of sand. When the wind is blowing from the West dispersing the sands, one has a feeling that the pipe organ is playing in the heart of the desert. Up to now this phenomenon is still a riddle of nature, but the scientists suppose that in hot dry weather the sand gets electrified due to friction and creates a certain sonic vibration.
