Be aware that near the Furmanova peak there are a lot of unstable stones at the slope.
To access this out-and-back hike, you can take bus #12 from the Hotel "Kazakhstan" (first bus 07.15 AM, last from Medeo 08.40 PM). Or, at the start point, you can park a car at the public parking lot.
After parking, the trail will start out heading uphill. At 30% of track you can find spring with fresh water. There are two more difficult places where the steep grade will get your heartbeat up at 50% and at the foot of Furmanovka peak.
Overall trail surface: 70% ground, 30% stones and uphill.
Take 1.5 liters of water. You can refill it at 30% of track in fresh mountain spring. There is no any other water on track!
