Description

Are you ready for a unique climbing experience in the mountains of Central Asia? Join us on this exciting tour where we will climb to the top of Uhkin in the Pamir Mountains of Krygyzstan!

Uhkin is a peak in the Pamir Mountains, standing at a whopping 5120 meters tall. It is located in the Zaalai ridge, north of the well-known Lenin Peak.

From the top of Uhkin, we will enjoy a breathtaking view of the northern wall of Lenin peak (7134 m) and the expansive Alai valley.

This ascent route is accesible to a wide variety of climbers. The route we take doesn’t have steep rocky or icy areas. We won’t need any special equipment, just trekking shoes!

We will meet in Bishkek, the country’s capital. We will then fly into Osh city. Osh is the oldest city in all of Kyrgyzstan, which means it is full of history!

Our base camp is the Osh-Achik-Tash Base Camp. It’s elevation is 3600 meters above sea level. It is situated in the alpine meadows between two steep river valleys. We will be able to contemplate the wild carpet of alpine flowers around us as we start preparing for the climb.

Our secondary camp is located on the Moraine, at an altitude of 4400 meters. Both camps offer comfortable living conditions, and allow you to recover and have a good rest after the expedition.

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

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
