    Join me on this ski touring in the Altai Massif and discover a large range that crosses four different countries: Mongolia, Russia, China, and Kazakhstan.

    On the first day of the trip, we’ll meet at the airport in Ulán Bator, the capital city of Mongolia.

    During the tour, we’ll visit the Tavan Bogd National Park where we’ll enjoy hiking and skiing through the highest peak in Mongolia, the Khuiten Peak (4,734 meters) that belongs to the Tavan Bogd Massif. Also, you will have the opportunity to go into the Tsambagarav National Park and to ascend and descend the Tsast Uul (4,193 meters), the highest point in the Tsambagarav mountain.

    For a more detailed itinerary, take a look at the bottom of the page.

    Take into account that this trip is aimed at skiers with a high level of experience and a very good physical conditions. Each day we’ll be outside for 7 to 10 hours and we will experience an elevation gain of 1,000 to 1,500 meters. Finally, consider that we’ll spend most of the time sleeping in tents and that risks may be part of the trip. That’s why it is really important for the participants to be advanced travelers.

    About the Guide

     
     

    Certified mountain guide UIAGM / IFMGA
    I work with Manu, a good friend of mine...
    We are both rock climbing instructors and certified mountain leaders. I shared with Manu happy and doubtful moments, building a professional future with a passionate focus on the mountain and the guide role. An open vision over the world, where our competences, knowledge and curiosity are at our client’s service for one day or for life.
    The agency we founded together is the natural outcome of our profound complicity. People think we are cousins or brothers. We are just friends, and lucky to be so, because our children are in love: as in love as you can be at 8 years old!
    We are both lucky to live in Corsica, this unknown mountain where climbers, mountaineers and skiers still feel like pioneers. This mountain is our playground and our office.
    Curious and open to the world, we also organize each year trips to faraway places to see what other mountains and people can give to us, and what we can learn from them.
    Ice in the Equator and Patagonia, Spanish, Jordanian or American rocks, snow in the Carpathians, Norway ot the Caucasus. We love the mountain in all its forms and every time we reach a summit we want to climb the neighbouring summit and find what is hiding behind it.

    The trip was great. We changed the destination to suit abilities. We climbed in the Restonica Valley which was beautiful. Cédric was excellent as a guide, highly recommended.

    We\'ve had the best time with Manu at the Suare crag in Calvi. His professionalism is absolutely top class and made us feel incredibly safe with his professional climbing skills. Most importantly we had a lot of fun. Explore Share is an amazing platform with various activities around the world and I can\'t believe I never knew about it until now! I\'ve already share this platform with adventurous friends and I am sure I will definitely be using this service again. Well done guys for your efficiency! Love your work!
