Altyn Emel by bike

Postby martin_kazakhstan » Tue Mar 14, 2017 1:00 pm

Hello everyone!
I have one more question concerning my plans for a bike trip in Almaty Region.

So far I was under the impression that the only way to see Altyn Emel is with some kind of licensed local tour operator, and that is fairly expensive most of the time. I am operating on a restrictive budget. But my hopes were stirred by this one sentence on the Caravanistan Altyn Emel page: If you come by bicyle, you do not need a guide.

I couldn't find anything helpful in English, and my very basic Russian doesn't allow for further research on the matter. Is it really true, that I can just go to Basshi, pay the entrance fee, and go cycling in Altyn Emel? Any experiences, or knowledge on the current situation?

Kind regards, Martin

That is what I have heard from other cyclists who did it and camped for free in the park.
