"There is one thing that's better than mountains
And it's mountains that we haven't climbed."
Russian poet, actor and singer.
Today we went to the mountains to take a dose of fresh air and a huge portion of sun.
Almaty is located at the foot of Tien Shan Mountains and it took us 30 minutes by car to get the the ski-resort called "Chimbulak" (2300 m above the sea). Now i get why people drive big cars here, mostly jeeps. It is much easier to drive jeep to the mountains. R went to ski and I took a long walk in the mountains. You have to be there to feel the magic of this beautiful place. I wouldn't mind to have a "dacha" there. Here come some pictures from the today trip.
