Join IFMGA certified mountain guides from the Central Asia Guides Bureau for this epic 10-days of mountaineering in two stunning Asian mountain gorges within Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan!
* Discover the amazing beauty of Ala Archa gorge and its amazing icefall
* Enjoy the epic landscape of Tuyuk Su gorge and its great mountaineering terrain
* Join highly experienced and local guides who know the landscape inside out
Kyrgyzstan and Kazakstan are two countries with absolutely breathtaking wild landscapes that are hardly explored by most mountaineers!
Kazakhstan is the ninth largest country in the world and much of this vast expanse takes form as mountain ranges, forests and gorges.
On this trip you will visit two countries and two stunning mountain gorges, Tuyuk Su in Kazakhstan and Ala Archa in Kyrgyzstan.
It is possible to start the trip in either country and then finish in the opposing country, depending on your preference.
You will spend 4 days in Tuyuk Su with then a whole day devoted to travelling to Ala Archa, and then a further 5 days in Ala Archa gorge.
Tuyuk Su is one of the most highly rated alpine regions in Asia, with an altitude within 2500-2800 metres, the gorge offers a truly wonderful location for mountaineering.
Not far from Almaty city, our accomodation at Tuyuk Su will be a very comfortable and cosy mountain hut.
Ala Arca gorge is positioned inside the picturesque Ala Archa National Park about 40km from Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek.
This gorge is famous for the amazing Ak Sai glacier with its more than 150 climbing routes and the Ak Sai icefall as a perfect spot to practice ice climbing.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to discover a pristine and still largely undiscovered part of the world. Sign up now for an amazing 10 days of mountaineering in varying but equally spectacular landscapes!
If you would like to take a course in mountaineering then join us on this great 7-day trip in Tuyuk Su gorge, Kyrgyzstan! Perhaps the talk of ice climbing rings your bell, then sign up to this 5-day trip in Ala Archa for some awesome ice climbing experiences!

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

I learnt a lot through this short mountaineering course and hope to take these new skills to new mountains and new heights! The highlight of this program was actual summit climb of 4000 Mt mountain in winter in - 25 deg cel. I'm grateful to my guide Kirill B , chef and team at Central Asia Guides for making this possible.
