Лучше гор могут быть только горы

"There is one thing that's better than mountains
And it's mountains that we haven't climbed."

Vladimir Vysotsky
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.
