Kazakhstan

A large number of travel programs in Kazakhstan can be found at our sister site kazaktours.com
On these pages only combined tours that include Kazakhstan are mentioned.

Kazakhstan is by far the biggest country of Central Asia, in size larger than the other countries put together, but nevertheless with a population of only 16 million - significantly less than in the much smaller Uzbekistan, with whom it continuously strives for regional hegemony .

Where Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan have a fairly clear image, i.e. respectively the ancient cities, the overwhelming nature and nomadic culture respectively the archaeological treasures and bizarre features, Kazakhstan is difficult to interpret. What is it then, why should one visit the country ?

We mention the nomadic culture in the border regions with Kyrgystan; the diverse nature from semi-desert to high mountains in the province of Almaty; the modern and futuristic capital of Astana; the visible Soviet history, especially in Central Kazakhstan; the endless steppes; the special " attraction " of the drying Aral Sea; the space launch center Baikanur; the unknown Altai region in the northeast. And much much more. In short, there is much to enjoy , but often involving considerable travel distances and not always with top-notch travel facilities.

Kazakhstan has the best options in the region with regard to hotels and restaurants, particularly in Almaty , Astana and Atyrau. The economy and the currency (Tenge) are completely liberalized and ATMs and CC payments are, especially in the big cities, no problem. Travel is free and without restrictions, and not dangerous.

You must have a visa in order to be allowed to visit Kazakhstan, which you can obtain from one of the many foreign Kazakh representations. An invitation letter is not required, but a cover letter with a travel summary is requested, which we prepare for you in case you have a tour booked with us. Vistors from the USA, UK, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Malaysia, UAE, Korea and Japan can travel without visa for up to 15 days since July 2014!
