Kok Tobe TV Tower and Recreation Area

It is a premier tourist sight in Almaty

The television tower, located on top of the Kok Tobe Mountain, is one of the highest and the most earthquake-resistant tower in the world. It is capable of withstanding an earthquake of any magnitude. Tourists cannot visit the tower - there isn't a museum or a viewing platform. However, it is of great importance for Almaty and the entire Kazakhstan. This monumental structure can be observed from almost anywhere in the city.

You can enjoy a bird's eye view of Kok Tobe by watching this video:


High-speed elevators are operating inside the TV tower, and a bomb shelter was built underneath. Near the tower, on the slopes of the mountain of the same name, there is a cable car, covering about 2 km (1.2 mi) of distance above the beautiful city of Almaty. There is also a zoo, a cafe, and a picturesque apple garden. The recreation area near the Kok-Tobe TV Tower is a great place to see the city skyline, have a romantic date or have fun with friends and family.
