Koktobe tv tower Almaty Kazakhstan


The Almaty Tower is the tallest structure in the Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan.  Seen here in this excellent drone video by AirVuz contributor and pilot dronogrom, the tower is located on Kok Tobe Mountain southeast of Almaty, the country's largest city and erstwhile capital.  Completed in 1983, the tower stands 373 meters tall (just over 1.2k ft.).  While most TV and radio towers are built of concrete, the Almaty tower is built of steel, and is the tallest steel tubular tower in the world.
