Join this ice-climbing educational course in Ala-Archa Gorge (Kyrgyzstan) led by certified mountaineering instructor & KMGA aspirant Alexey!
If ice climbing is something you always wanted to pursue, this is your chance. Join me for a 15-day course, especially designed for beginners, in Ala-Archa Gorge, just 41 km out of Bishkek. Also, for intermediate climbers, it is a unique opportunity to find lots of life-hacks and boost their skills.
Ala-Archa Gorge, right at the heart of the Tian Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan, is a perfect area for ice-climbing at all levels of difficulty, so it is for your first steps in this empowering activity.
To begin this program, I will meet you at the Manas International airport near Bishkek. Next, we will transfer to the Ala-Archa National Nature Park (2,000 m).
Up in the mountain our main accommodation site will be the Racek mountain hut (3,340 m). Every day we will depart from the hut to different slopes and climbing areas, mainly the Ak-Sai glacier area.
I will provide you with a complete educational ice-climbing course lectures and practical training sessions. The main topics will include:
A central part of the program consists of ascents to the Ak-Say area summits, with peaks above 4,000 m. The overall difficulty of the routes we will go on varies from levels F to TD+. You can see the detailed program, day by day, below.
While I will provide all the climbing equipment, the remaining personal equipment needs to be rented separately.
Note that while the basic program is 15 days long, it can be adjusted to the guests’ goals and wishes. Finally, every client must get compulsory insurance for climbers.

I ended up climbing for 2 weeks in Ala Archa with Alexey, and then I climbed Khan Tengri by myself. I was not able to attempt Pobeda because of some frost damage on my fingers, but I hope to be able to try it one day. Alexey was a great guide and it was awesome to climb with him!
