We invite you to look on some views of the observatory on Assy-Turgen
plateau. This plateau with altitude 2750 m is surrounded by
distant mountain rifts and the sky is open to about 2-3 degrees over horizon.
Most part of the 100-km way from Alma-Ata to Assy is normally asphalted excluding
more hard part in the river Turgen canyon and last rising part of the road
to the plateu.
