Massive Mountaineering to the Nursultan Peak
Annually, in late June or early July, there are massive groups that are flocking to the Nursultan peak, which sits about 4376 m above sea level. This is the highest peak near Almaty and surely opens up to one of the most beautiful panoramic views that can be seen from almost any place in the city.
The first massive mountain climbing group reaching the peak took place in 1935.
Participants can register directly at Talgar Pass (3200 m) for the event. The event is brought to the public’s access by the Almaty Mountaineering Federation and Almaty Rescue Service. Participants need to have special apparel and equipment according to the list provided by organizers. Then there is the Gondola lift which is free for participants.
