Located about 40 kilometers, south of the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek, Ala Archa National Park was established in 1976. During Soviet times, Russian mountaineering divisions would come to the park, which is nestled among the Tian Shan mountains, to train because of the excellent conditions for mountaineering. Every May 1, hundreds of residents from across the country come to camp out in the park and climb Mount Komsomolets for the Alpinada festival.

The trip was awesome. Anastasiya organised for us a great mountaineering course in the Ala Archa Valley. All went super fine.

For our rock climbing week Andrey had put together a programm which was ideally tailored to our skills. He handled everything in a very professional and trouble-free way. Under his guidance we learned a lot and
gained confidence to undertake more challenging tours for ourselves in the future. At the same time, Andrey is also a really nice guy to hang out with. We had lots of fun during our tours and in the evenings. Thanks Andrey!

We had a really great time in Ala Archa with Anastasiya. The landscape is beautiful und full of possibilites for mountaineering. Anastasiya is a great guide with a lot of experience. We had a lot of fun and felt safe every moment, plus we learned a lot of new stuff and were able to deepen our small knowledge of mountaineering. Razek Hut is a basic hut, but provides everything you need on a mountain, including fresh water from a waterfall 🙂 We hope to see this area and Anastasiya again in future

Dear Alex and Anastasiya, we want to thank you two for this awesome adventure! We want to thank you for your patience (it’s not easy to handle such a crazy group of singers, laughers, crazy people 😉 ), your professionalism, your smiles, your warmth and your positive attitude! We will keep these days in our hearts and send think back to you two with a smile on our faces! Thank you. Matt, Susi, Mann Roberto

Anastasiya gave us an excellent introduction into climbing rock and ice. Systematic training and practice in base camp area and on glacier. Mountains close to base camp for every level of skill. Good accomodation in simple hut, and tasty food in base camp kitchen. Kyrgystan and Ala Archa can be highly recommended as destination with reasonable prices and friendly people.

The trip was great and I have learned a lot.
Anastacia was super friendly, patient and of course competent.
Hope I can do a trip with her again in the future!

I had an amazing time. I’ve wanted to do a mountaineering course for years and I did far more than I expected within the seven days, I’d recommend it for anyone wanting similiar. Ala-Archa is an incredible place to learn and practise, stunning views. And Anastasiya is a perfect guide, very patient and knowledgable. She’s really proffesional in what she does!

I ended up climbing for 2 weeks in Ala Archa with Alexey, and then I climbed Khan Tengri by myself. I was not able to attempt Pobeda because of some frost damage on my fingers, but I hope to be able to try it one day. Alexey was a great guide and it was awesome to climb with him!

Thanks Anastacia 😉 i will never Forget this trip with you and sure it will lead To new climbing adventures. You were Amazing guide and woman. You are welcome in France. Kind regards

Everything about the program was great: it actually was my first hike, trek and climb on a mountain! Perhaps I wasn’t physically prepared, but reaching the top of the peak was definitely the best part of the trip. I also enjoyed doing multi-pitches on the mountain, that’s something I would really like to do again. Andrey is a complete and responsible mountain guide that everybody should hire. He shares his knowledge and pushes his clients to their utmost capabilities. And the best thing is he can also take awesome pictures!
