More Info

If the ground is covered with sufficient snow and ice to make the use of crampons and ice axes necessary, then you’ve got yourself a winter mountaineering trip. It is more important to pay attention to the conditions on the ground than the season. Winter conditions and rapidly changing weather provide an undeniable added challenge, for which planning is key. The right clothes and gear can make or break your trip. But even if planning is essential, remind yourself to remain flexible: this may mean changing your route or even turning back and waiting for more favorable conditions.

I’ve had a absolutely amazing time with Pawel, such a thrilling adventure. Learned a lot of techniques and I will definitely
go on another adventure with Pawel. He’s methods of teaching was excellent and he is so good at what he does. Thank so much for putting me in touch with him I can highly recommend him.
We had a wonderful time ice climbing despite some rather crazy weather conditions! Takao was great company, very clearly experienced
in the area and equipped with all necessary equipment. He was always on time and made exceptional efforts to get us out to the ice and back safely to Sapporo. The onsen, river crossing and thigh-high snow trek were as important as the actual climbing to the whole experience. We highly recommend and hope to be back to the area for summer climbing!
Well planned and brilliant communication before had, Mitja would reply to emails quickly and would answer any questions that we
had. The walk was fantastic, deffinatly a challenge. Highly recommended.
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.
Our Mount Fuji off season climb was wonderful; an experience that both Angie and I will remember the rest of
lives. Cveto, our mountain guide, was superb. He is not only an expert in the field of mountain climbing that made us feel safe throughout the climb to the summit, but also a person that went beyond expectations to make the mountain experience memorable in every way. Cveto is not only an expert climber, but also an exceptional person with a carefree and adventurous personality. Thank you for making a dream come through for both of us. Best regards, Carlos & Angie
Cveto was an amazing guide whose expertise and experience made the climb very fun and exciting. I would recommend him
to anyone who is looking for an amazing outdoor adventure
Amazing! Cveto was experienced, professional, & went the extra mile to check on me the night before to ensure I
was prepared. He was encouraging but also realistic regarding conditions & limitations. This was my 1st climb (1st time seeing snow actually!) and as a beginner he was patient w/ me and gave clear instructions-I always felt safe. Highly, highly recommend! Reaching the summit was an unforgettable experience. Thank you for everything. -solo female traveler
Excellent ! We had great time.
A good climb although weather wasn’t good and couldn’t see much at the summit.
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!
Takao is very professional. I enjoy climbing with him very much. Also, the waterfall at 2nd day leave a good
memories for me. If I climb in Japan again, I will find him again.
Great experience!
