Join IFMGA certified mountain guides from the Central Asia Guides Bureau for this special 6-days of snowshoeing in Suusamyr Valley in the Tian Shan mountains of Kyrgyzstan!
Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec
Suusamyr Valley, in the Tian Shan mountains of Kyrgyzstan, is elevated at 2000-2500 metres above sea level and is a truly magnificent spectacle to behold.
Located 130km from the capital Bishkek, the Suusamyr river runs through the valley and gives life to the myriad different colourful flowers of the summer.
In the winter this gives way to a white blancket of deep powder snow and in so doing, creates an excellent environment for snowshoeing.
Snowshoeing is hiking in the snow but with specially made expansive shoes, they distribute your weight and allow for easy passage through the snow.
With this method of movement we can explore deep into mountain ranges and move efficiently whilst enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
The Suusamyr Valley provides quality snow for our hiking, breathtaking views over the mountains and charming locals from whom you can observe traditional, rural Kyrgyzstani life.
After meeting in Bishkek our first 2-3 days will be spent at the old Soviet meteorological station which lies at an altitude of 3600m and is surrounded my mountains up to 4,500m.
After a few days enjoying this wilderness we will move onto a new ski tour and paragliding base that is located a few hours hike away.
This trip will include some avalanche training, whilst less likely when snowshoeing it is still an important aspect of winter mountain explorations.
Our program is always weather dependant and I will change the route if it is deemed necessary due to inclimate weather conditions.
This is a fantastic opportunity to discover a pristine and little known corner of the world. Sign up now and don’t miss the chance to explore real wilderness by snowshoe and observe fascinating local cultures!
If this trip excites you then consider this fantastic one week snowshoeing trip in Irdyk Gorge and Jyrgalan Valley! Or if you’re keen to explore this region but not keen on snowshoeing then consider this amazing 7-day mountaineering course in Tuyuk Su gorge, Kyrgyzstan!

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 had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
