From Zharkent to Almaty

Postby cztt346 » Tue Sep 17, 2019 2:29 pm

As far as I know, there is an international coach bus from Huoerguosi (Horgos) (in China) to Zharkent, then is there a bus travels from Zharkent to Almaty? Or is it possible for me to get to Altynkol Railway Station to take a train to Almaty?

Thank you for your reply. Then where can I get on the bus? I heard some travellers could not find the bus so they have to pay 4000-5000тг to take a taxi to Almaty.

Was it recently?

Sorry, can't tell you for sure where to find that bus.
From my experience, bus stations can be messy and disorganized in KZ. Buses can stop outside of bus station or have different stand.
Usually ask people around and eventually find the bus.

I called to Sairan bus station in Almaty. They confirmed that there is a bus from Almaty to Zharkent for 2000 tenge.
Unfortunately I didn't find any contacts of Zharkent bus station. And people at Almaty bus station didn't know schedule of buses from Zharkent.
But they said if the bus goes from Almaty to Zharkent, it should go backwards too.
It'd be strange if the bus goes only in one direction, I think.

Someone told me there should be a bus at 9 am from Zharkent. And maybe in the evening/or day but not always.
But sorry don't know exact location. And maybe asking around won't work in Zharkent.

Then is there any public transportation available for me to get to the Altynkol Railway Station at the CHN-KAZ border from Zharkent?
