Prince Harry, his girlfriend spend private holiday in Kazakh ski resort of Shymbulak

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Prince Harry has taken his girlfriend Cressida Bonas to the exclusive resort of Shymbulak in Kazakhstan for private holiday, MailOnline reported Tuesday.

They reportedly arrived in Kazakhstan by helicopter to stay in a luxury chalet in the mountains above the city of Almaty. Kazakhstan usually has a cold winter which ensures it has powdery snow until late in the season, the report says.

The Shymbulak resort – set among dramatic peaks that separate China from the Russian steppes – has only one main slope. It is usually visited by wealthy Russians, many of whom are in the country as part of the oil and gas trade.

The couple may have chosen their skiing destination with help of Prince Andrew who developed strong links with Kazakhstan in his capacity as Britain’s special trade representative. Andrew sold his home in Ascot to a tycoon from Kazakhstan and is a frequent guest of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, with whom he goes goose-hunting.
