Bishkek is the capital of Kyrgyzstan and this central asian city has a fascinating history to discover with multiple foreign influences on its development.

Around Kyrgyzstan no matter where you are, getting into wild and pristine areas takes no time at all and Bishkek is no exception.

Snowshoeing offers the opportunity for people who love the outdoors, love the winter and want to take their time as they explore the nature.

We will meet in the city and then take a 40-60 minute drive into the surrounding mountains. After a full and fun day in the powder snow of the stunning mountains we will bring you back to the city.

The areas surrounding Bishkek offer landscapes and environments that are unspoilt by human actions and so means the snowshoer can roam across a pristine and wild terrain that is so close to the city centre.

This trip is suitable for complete beginnners, anyone can join us on the excursion providing they have a decent level of fitness and love the outdoors!

On this day trip you will be taught about avalanche saftey which is an important and useful practice despite the low risk presented by snowshoeing.

If this trip sounds like fun to you and you would like to know both Bishkek and the breathtaking mountains that surround it then sign up now and we will be waiting to share this magic with you!

If this trip gets you excited but you fancy a longer duration then consider this fantastic one week snowshoeing trip in Irdyk Gorge and Jyrgalan Valley! Or if you would like to discover kyrgyzstan a different way then consider this amazing 7-day mountaineering course in Tuyuk Su gorge, Kyrgyzstan!

About the guide

We invite you to open the world of high and wild mountains
Our bureau was created by professional mountain guides Pavel Vorobiev and Anastasya Cheremnyh, both local IFMGA certified guides and Snow Leopards.

We have been working in the mountains for many years and have extensive guiding experience. In addition, we know this region of Central Asia very well. Based on our experience and your wishes, we will be able to tell you where to find the best snow for an amazing ski touring program or where to find the best rock or the best ice for an unforgettable climbing trip.

We take guide selection very seriously. We know each of the guides we work with personally after having worked and climbed with them many times. Most of them are IFMGA-certified guides, Snow Leopards and members of the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA). All of them are professionals with extensive experience.

These are some of the guides in our team:
- Oleg Turaev: IFMGA and KMGA-certified, he has participated in many mountain rescues and is one of the most experienced guides in Central Asia.
- Sergey Seleverstov: IFMGA and KMGA-certified. He is also a Snow Leopard. He has climbed more than 20 mountains over 7000m.
- Artur Usmanov: IFMGA and KMGA-certified and also a Snow Leopard. He stood on a summit over 7000m 12 times.

We offer standard programs, but all of them can be adapted depending on your wishes and experience. Our philosophy is pretty simple: 1) safety, 2) a fun and positive experience for our guests and 3) reaching the summit.
Apart from the Tien-Shan & Pamir mountains, we successfully guide our guests in the Andes, Africa, the Caucasus, the Alps and the Himalayas
