Stretching from the Altai Mountains in the Far East to the shores of the oil-rich Caspian Sea, Kazakhstan is the world’s ninth largest country.

Kazakhstan holidays are growing and expanding as a result of the geographical size and diversity of the country. The capital Almaty is a bustling metropolis, with the city’s backdrop dominated by the snow-capped Tian Shan Mountains. Explore the Republic Square which stretches an impressive 580m and is adorned by a statue of a flying winged leopard.

Nestled in the Tian Shan mountains lies Big Almaty Lake, at over 600m deep and 1.6km this turquoise lake is a natural alpine reservoir set amongst the stunning backdrop of the mountain range.

A drive through the breathtaking Charyn Canon to the Valley of the Castles, named due to the pillar and rock formations shaped by wind and water over three million years ago. Take a hike down to the canon floor and gaze up at the craggy cliffs towering above you.
