Ambassador of the Republic of Kazakhstan to India
His Excellency Kairat E. Umarov
Kazakhstan is a wonderful place for vacationers to travel to and visit. It is a land of snow-capped mountains, thousands of lakes, vast flat steppes, deserts and endless forests, snow leopards and beautiful flamingoes.
Kazakhstan is a great tourist destination. It is a huge country, about the same size as India, and just 3.5 hrs from India by air. We have convenient flights between Delhi and Almaty twice a week.
Almaty is one of the best cities to spend time. Almaty has four distinct seasons, and for those who like adventure this is the place to be. Almaty is situated in the foothills of the mountains. It enjoys a beautiful setting between mountains and plains, and is a city of modern architecture, wide streets, cool fountains, parks and squares and spectacular mountain views.
It takes just 30-40 minutes' driving from Almaty to be surrounded by wilderness, evergreen pine forests and mountain lakes.
Almaty is a vibrant city with its night life, cafes, night clubs and casinos.
Almaty is also a great place for family vacations or honeymoons. You will find it an interesting place with good shopping and beautiful surroundings. We have a great canyon not far from the city, which is at par with the Grand Canyon in the United States.
Aside from that, we have singing dunes, mountain rivers and many other attractions to see. All in all it is worth the trip. Kazakhstan welcomes you!
