Question: Best day trips in December from Almaty

I'm looking for a budget tour to visit some of the best sites around Almaty in December.

We are a group of 2 people and happy to join group tours if need be. We are looking for one or two-day trips, overnight possible, from Almaty on the 25 and 26 of December.

Thank you! -Sarah

Hi Sarah! If you are looking for budget group tours, there are many local companies arranging tours on buses around main sightseeing points of Almaty region like Charyn canyon, Altyn Emel, Kolsay lakes and etc. Their rates are around 9000-15000 KZT (approx. 25-40 USD) per person. They service clients on buses, and trips take 1-2 days. As to myself I do private tours on my SUV. My rate is USD150/day net of fuel/meals/accommodation, which is obviously out of your budget. Plus remember about the weather and gear accordingly.
