Previously, we reported on how environmentally friendly recreation centers and hotels in the iconic tourist destinations of the Almaty region. There visited the team KAGiR and KTA, which together with EKOTEK and ECEAT are partners in the project SUSTOUKA.
Smaller establishments are also making a worthy contribution to the development of tourism in Kazakhstan. Our Super Hostel can only accommodate 36 people”, says Mergen, head administrator of the hostel, “but it accommodates migrant workers and tourists from various cities in Kazakhstan and many countries near and far abroad. For example, a group of six girls from Shymkent stopped by today. They left their things, put on backpacks, took alpenstock and went to the mountains.
Our hostel has energy-saving light bulbs, we throw out garbage in separate bins, we use paper bags, so we try to be environmentally friendly,” said Mergen.
