Which train route from Moscow to Almaty

Postby OneChai » Mon Jun 09, 2014 3:38 pm

I'm planning to come back from either Bishkek or Almaty to Moscow by train. I can see 2 options :
- Direct train from Bishkek to Moscow which takes a southern route through Kazakhstan along the Syr Daria and then on to Aktobe
- A first train from Almaty to Astana and then Astana-Moscow

From the scenary point of view, is one route better than the other ?

Both are pretty boring. I don't know which will come out cheaper, or quicker, but scenery-wise, you're not missing out on anything either way.
