Northern Tien-Shan Mountains, View from Almaty City, Almaty, Kazakhstan

Northern Tien-Shan at Sunset, View from Almaty City, Almaty, Kazakhstan

Made this photo a three years ago on the last trip to my home city, Almaty, the former capital of Kazakhstan. The highest mountain on the photo is Small Almaty Peak and it’s 4376m (14,357ft) high. It’s interesting that Small Almaty Peak is actually much higher than High Almaty Peak which is only 3700m (12,139ft) high. The Small Almaty Peak is just much further from the city and therefore looks smaller. Due to its close proximity to Almaty, it is a very popular mountaineering destination. I was there ontop. Once.:-)Unforgettable feelings and view.
