Koktobe
Kazakhstan
The most beautiful and amazing places of Almaty and Kazakhstan. It’s the Kok-tobe Mountain - the highest point of the city which is situated on high of 1100 meters above sea level. You can get an eyeful of the mountains moving up on a rope-way in air bus. The top commanded an amazing view for the mountains and the city. Here is especially beautiful in the night when the city is lighted by multicolored lights. The rope-way rises above the oldest part of a city full of gardens which local people call “Compote”. The reason is the streets’ names in this district: Cherry, Pear, Grape, etc. The 350 meters long television tower overlooks at the foot of the Kok- tobe Mountain. It is one of the highest towers in the world if counts from sea level. The Verigina Mountain or the Kok-tobe and its suburbs have entered into the first films about Almaty city. «Our Lovely Doctor» by S.K.Aimanov (1957), «Welcome to Alma-Ata» by A.G.Nugmanov (1975), «The Mountains and The City» by J.B.Sik (1976), «The Lights of the evening Alma-Ata», «The City of Apples’ Sunrises», "Alma-Ata" by V.P.Tatenko (1978-1981). The Kok-tobe Mountain is not only the magic of the mountains, fresh air and freedom feeling, it is also the place of friends meetings, enamored walks, rest with children and simply having a good time.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
