Hiking to the most accessible glacier near Almaty. Also cover all the Medeo (dam/skating rink) and Shymbulak areas from the bird's eye vie.
Upon reaching Big Talgar pass (3200masl) by tram it takes 1-2 hours to get to that monumental thing.
Fee: T30.000 (1-3 persons). Cableway is not included (T3500 per person to the Talgar Pass).

WARNING: implies fast ascent (car and tram) by more than 2200 meters and may cause mountain sickness. Not recommended for preconditioned people and recently arrived (not yet acclimatized in the area). Though no one ever in our practice got affected a this altitude.
