Atop Көктөбе: Check out the traditional Kazakh hats Dina and I are wearing! We took a cable car up Kok Tobe (translation: Green Hill) to catch a view of the mountains above the city smog and fog.
If you make the trip, I highly recommend enjoying a meal in the Kazakh Yurt atop the mountain! The tea and lamb shish kebabs were delicious.
They also had a little zoo, mostly filled with a variety of birds!
