Mountain Biking in Shymbulak summar

Post by ikari »

Hi has anyone rented mountain bikes at Shymbulak in summer?

There seems to be a very cool bike park that has a long trail going all the way down to one of the gondola stations. It is suitable for people without technical mountain biking skills? We are going in mid June 2018. Will there still be snow on the biking trails?

Hi ikari,

not sure if you can rent at Shymbulak, but you can rent a bicycle in the city and then take it up to Shymbulak on the bus. Buses are now equipped with special carrier-boxes - see the image here at the bottom: https://caravanistan.com/kazakhstan/almaty/bus/

I don't know the details of this mountain biking park - please let us know! I do know many people also cycle around in the area around. A popular route is east to west via Kok Zhailau. Don't try this on the weekend, though, too many people.

In any case, there are many, many options. I think you can even take your bicycle in the cable cars all the way to the top.

Definitely no snow!
