21-Day Expedition of Khan Tengri in the Tian Shan | undefined

Come with Sergey, a KMGA-certified mountain guide, on an amazing 21-day mountaineering expedition to Khan Tengri at over 7,000 meters.


Tian Shan

21 Days

Jun - Aug




Challenge yourself with a guided ascent of the indomitable Khan Tengri of the Tian Shan! Right at the border of China, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan, this 21-day mountaineering adventure will take you to the top of the world´s most northern peak over 7,000 meters!

Khan Tengri is the second highest mountain of the Tian Shan, an extensive mountain range in central Asia. They are part of the system of mountains that was formed from the Indian tectonic plate and the Eurasian tectonic plate collided during the Cenozoic Era.

The result is a beautiful and massive group of mountains that include some very tall and notable peaks. And rising up to 7,010 meters is Khan Tengri. Its height and geographic location make it a daunting goal because of the limited climbing season, the more severe weather in contrast to other mountains, and the thin air quality.

The glacial cap on Khan Tengri gives it the extra push over 7,000 meters, though its geologic elevation sits at 6,995 meters. It is also one of the five peaks required to summit to achieve the Soviet Snow Leopard Award.

Our journey to conquer this giant begins in Almaty, where we will stay in a hotel to get settled in for our trip. From Kazakhstan, we travel to Karkara, Kyrgyzstan, and continue by helicopter to our base camp (4,200m) at Northern Inylchek.

From here, the true journey begins, and we will spend time acclimitizing ourselves to the environment and taking appropriate rest days to prepare for the summit. Our mountaineering trip will include Chapaev Peak (6,100m), and has some additional days included just in case there is inclement or detrimental weather.

This is a sustained trip with some challenging aspects, so you should have a high level of fitness and the mental fortitude to take on this program. Mountaineering experience is crucial to the success of our summit.

This region is my home, and I am excited to share it with you! My guiding expertise will allow us a safe and satisfying program while traveling like a local.

Book this 21-day mountaineering expedition to Khan Tengri and look out over three different countries from over 7,000 meters!

Mountain Leader

I grew up in Almaty, Kazakhstan. At the age of 14I began to walk in the mountains. In 19 I came to the club of the mountaineering. I took a part of the national team of Kazakhstan. I participated in expeditions to the Himalayas, Karakorum, Tien Shan, Pamir. I started ski touring in 2012 and I haven’t stopped since then. The love of the mountains turned my hobby into my craft and I’m absolutely happy. The tourism in Kazakhstan develops very slow that’s why, you can see their primordial character and enjoy.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
