Right, Basshi park office is a place where usually people take permit.

Hello everybody,

I want to go to the Altyn-Emel NP by public transportation. It seems that I have to find a ranger respectively I have to go the office in Basshi to find a driver for a tour? Does it work like this without a own car?

Thanks

Hi.
There is no public transportation to Altyn Emel and Basshi village.
You need to find a taxi to Basshi and arrange transport for Altyn Emel with a ranger in the park office.
Or you can find a tour in Almaty. There are enough tour companies that offer tours to Altyn Emel from Almaty.

Hi all,

I read a lot about drivers being appointed and/or booked to visit altyn emel NP. Now I am wondering if a driver is obligated? Because although there are bad roads, we are renting a 4 x 4 and I have a lot of experience driving offroad all over the world. Seems like it would be nice if I could save me some money on that guide.

no. I met tourists who rented a 4x4 in Almaty, and were allowed to drive themselves in the park.
