HOTELS : Most towns in Kazakhstan have a limited supply of reasonable accommodation. It is advisable to make reservations in advance, either directly or through a travel agency. Most hotels deliver a basic level of comfort, although Western standards should not be expected.

Grading : A star-grading system has been introduced in recent years. There are at least two 5-star hotels in Almaty, as well as numerous new hotels of a reasonable standard. Classification of tourist hotels and campsites is carried out by the Department of Tourism (see Contact Addresses section); classification of other forms of accommodation is carried out by the local authorities.

TURBAZAS : These ‘tourist bases’ are an alternative to hotel accommodation. For a small fee, visitors have access to basic bungalow accommodation and three meals a day.

CAMPING : The only designated campsites are the permanent base camps from which the high peaks of Kazakhstan are climbed. Travellers pitch their tents in other localities at their own risk, although there are no regulations against it.
