Embark on a Scenic Adventure: Take the Cable Car to Shymbulak in Almaty!

Once you’ve made your way to Medeu, don’t miss the opportunity to ascend to the higher reaches of the mountains by taking the cable car to the renowned Shymbulak ski resort. With three cable car rides in total, the journey is as exhilarating as the destination, culminating at the impressive altitude of 3,200 meters above sea level at the Talgar Pass.

Prepare to be awe-struck by the truly breathtaking views that await you at Shymbulak. The panorama of the Tian Shan mountains, specifically the Zaiilisky Alatau mountain range, stretches before you, showcasing nature’s magnificent splendor. The grandeur and majesty of these mountains will leave you speechless. If you cast your gaze in the opposite direction, a unique vantage point reveals the city of Almaty nestled below, offering a contrasting view of urban life against the vast backdrop of nature.

While Shymbulak is a sought-after skiing destination, you can visit solely for the incredible views. However, I encourage you to enhance your experience by indulging in a cup of tea in a traditional yurt perched high in the mountains. Immerse yourself in the local culture while savoring the warm beverage, surrounded by the pristine beauty of the surroundings.

In the unlikely event that the cable car is unavailable, fear not. You still have the option to reach the base of Shymbulak at an elevation of 2,200 meters above sea level by taking a minibus from Medeu. This alternative transportation ensures you won’t miss out on the mesmerizing sights that await you.

If you prefer the convenience of an organized tour, consider embarking on a guided excursion to Medeu and Shymbulak. These tours offer a comprehensive experience, allowing you to soak in the splendor of Medeu, ascend to Shymbulak, and fully appreciate the wonders of the region.
