Kazakhstan: info on buying train tickets online

Hi everyone, Just a quick information that could be useful: As Canadians, we were not able to buy tickets online with Tickets.kz because they accept only payments or credit cards from european banks.

If we are already planning on trekking in the Fann Mountains, is it still worth it to include Jizeu? If you would have time for only one of the 2 (Jizeu vs Fann Mountains), which one woul...
