Horse riding

Black Card

Taming and milking horses started in Kazakhstan 5,500 years ago and continues to this day. Since horses are a big part of the culture in rural areas, Kazakhstan is one of the best places for an adventure on horseback. Rixos Almaty also offers tours on horseback in the surrounding of mountains and fresh air.

  

 

Restaurant with local cuisine

KAZAKHSTAN
RIXOS ALMATY
01 Sep, 2014 - 31 Dec, 2015

Black Card

Traditionally, the main meal in every dastarkhan (local name for the traditional space where meals are taken) and one of the most delicious foods for the Kazakh people was horsemeat in a special dough called Beshbarmak (“five fingers”). Although the cuisine of Kazakhstan has evolved since then, it is still imbued with the ancient Kazakh tradition of hospitality. Throughout history, Kazakhstan has become a multinational country due to the immigrants from various nations including the Russians, Tatars, Ukrainians, Uzbeks, Germans, Uigurs and Koreans who have moved into Kazakhstan and adopted the tradition of having meals in the dastarkhan. Make your choice from the best national dishes in Choihona #1.
