Dramatic Landscapes

It is hard to overstate how breath-taking and jaw-dropping the landscape, scenery and terrain is in the Osh Region, as its humongous snow-capped mountains tower over vast expanses and huge tracts of rocky canyons and green fields. The wide open spaces seemingly stretch on forever, punctuated only by lush coloured lakes and lagoons.

Peaceful Isolation

The South of Kyrgyzstan is not a tourist hotspot for many people, owing to its relative isolation and lack of knowledge about the area. This is beneficial to mountain climbing enthusiasts who do come here, as the fewer crowds and lack of tourist traps leads to a peaceful and laid-back vibe. As there are few concessions to the hectic pace of the modern Western world, it is a great place to disconnect, unwind and concentrate only on your mountain climbing.

Osh is the oldest city in Kyrgyzstan, at over 3000 years old, and is commonly referred to as the capital city of the South.

Despite not summiting, The Lenin Peak trip and the professionalism and abilities of Andrey far surpassed my best expectations. Andrey was responsible, knowledgeable, compassionate, and most of all a great person to spend 21 days with. Andrey displayed a high level of good judgement in regards to our decisions on the mountain and ensured the safety of everyone in our group at all times. I would not hesitate to use Andrey for any mountain adventure.
