The word “Almaty” in Kazakh people language means “grown with apple trees”. The first Kazakh scholar Chokan Valikhanov observed: “Almaty city was known for its trade and was a trading post on a high road.” Apples were no doubt one of the important commodities. Anyway, Alma-Ata city has been famous for them to this day.

Almaty is the former capital of Kazakhstan and a sublime city in the foothills of Ala-Tau mountains. It is a perfect blend of distinctive nomadic traditions, specific characteristic of Soviet culture and modern European glamour.The sparkling and extravagant nightlife of Almaty and Ritzy casinos has made it the heaven for high rollers and bon-vivant.
Kazakhstan’s flora — consisting of over 6,000 species — is interesting and varied. Its alpine and bulbous plants are particularly special, and one of the highlights of this tour will be the wide variety and colourful displays of wild tulips that we will find in bloom in the meadows and mountains. It was only during the second half of the 16th century that Asian tulips found their way to Europe, and the majority of forms in cultivation around the world today were originally obtained from Greig’s and Kaufmann’s Tulips, both of which we will see in their meadows of origin during this exciting tour. Indeed, as we journey westwards from Almaty across south-eastern Kazakhstan, amongst a bewildering variety of other beautiful spring flowers, we will hope to see up to 10 species of wild Asian tulips.
Shymbulak (Kazakh: S'ymbulaq, Шымбұлақ), also known as Chimbulak (Russian: Чимбулак) is a ski resort near Almaty. It is the largest ski resort in Central Asia. It is located in the upper part of the Medeu Valley in the Zaiilisky Alatau mountain range, at an elevation of 2,200 metres (7,200 ft) above sea level.
