Continuing off the previous post, Almaty is not only a beautiful city but also a great base for day trips! Within just an hour or 2 you might find yourself in a desert canyon or a snowcapped mountain. Here are 3 day trips I did from Almaty, to Charyn/Sharyn Canyon, to Medeu and Chimbulak/Shymbulak, and one to Big Almaty Lake and the First Presidential Park.
