One of the most popular weekend hikes – the Panorama Peak (3260masl) up the Kimasar gorge (Medeo area). From the peak you will be able to see panoramic views of the whole area, including Talgar peak - the highest point of Zailiysky Alatau.
Kimasar gorge is considered as one of the easily-accessed walking ranges near Almaty and proved itself as an avalanche-free route. Mild gradient makes it super-friendly even for beginners and kids. For serious workout continue by the ridge to the Furmanovka peak (and further to Panorama).
Food and beverages: not served for this hiking, bring your own snacks.
Fee: $130 (group of 1-3 people).
