Western Kazakhstan to East Kazakhstan

Post by yastreb »

I've just rode down the river Volga to Astrakhan from Moscow and am preparing to move into Kazahstan and Kyrgyzstan. I'll have a cheap time getting but I'm having a hard time of finding a budget option for crossing from west to east. Can anyone reccommend me something? I wouldn't like to pay 80$ just to get to other side of the country.

So far trains are the cheapest option for long distances. Just checked, for example, the cheapest train from Uralsk (Oral) to Almaty is about 9 000 tenge ($24)
Checked here, the official Kazakh railway website https://epay.railways.kz

Can check the schedule on other web-sites too. And buy ticket on the train stations.

Also combination of trains and buses works too (in case you have a complex route visiting some specific places on your way).

And summer seems to be a high season. Need to get a ticket sooner as the cheapest tickets get sold out quickly.
