Travel on an unforgettable bus tour from Almaty to Lakes Kolsai and Kaindy. Immerse yourself in the unique nature and culture of Kazakhstan


  • Visit two of the most visited and famous lakes in Kazakhstan
  • Enjoy the fresh and abundant nature on Lake Kaindy's shores
  • Hike along scenic trails and photograph the mountain views


Leave the hustle and bustle of Almaty behind and make your way to Lake Kaindy first. En route, marvel at the scenic views of Kazakhstan and relax in the bus as your driver leads you to the country's striking natural landscape. Once at Lake Kaindy, enjoy a walk and choose to go on a horse riding adventure at your own expense. After your relaxing time there, get back in the bus to head to your next destination: Lake Kolsai. There, relax on the lakeshore and breathe in the fresh outdoor air. Take a pitstop for lunch at your own expense and enjoy a leisurely stroll by the lake afterwards. Finally, drive back to Almaty, once more soaking up the brilliant natural landscape unfurling by you as you drive back to the city.
