Kimasar circuit

Famous high altitude swings tour. Flexible and relaxed. 

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 making it very popular among amateur hikers, especially on weekends. To avoid those crowds this tour utilizes less known paths. Uphill by the summer trail along the river (or by main trail), photo stop at the swings and then back via Serkebai mountain. 

Food and beverages: not served for this hiking, bring your own snacks.

Fee: $100 (group of 1-3 people).
