9 Days

Get ready for an incredible adventure in the Issyk Kul Lake (1609 m/ 5,279 ft). Located in the Tian Shan mountains in eastern Kyrgyzstan, this place will be the perfect setting for our 9-day guided splitboarding tour!

With 180 kilometers in length and 70 in width, the Issyk Kul Lake is one of the largest alpine lakes in the world. And thanks to its magnificent scenery and location, participants will admire the most beautiful and remote snow-covered mountains.

During this splitboarding tour, skiers and snowboarders will explore the beautiful mountain range of Terskey Ala-Too and discover a wide variety of slope elevation for ascents and descents. And although the levels of difficulty around the lake are different, take into account that the tour is intended for confident riders only.

Our meeting point will be in the capital and most populated city from Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek. Then, we will transfer to Karakocity, which is situated on the eastern border of the lake. We may arrange a day off to enjoy Karakol city or any other activity that you prefer. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

About the guide

I am a certified mountain guide, trained at the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA). I have been working as a mountain guide since 2000. I have more than 20 summit ascents with clients on 7000 m mountains. I have been skiing for all my life. I completed education at Ski Instructor School (NRLI) on the ISIA system. I have experience in organising and conduction of ski tour programs on the territory of Kyrgyzstan for more than 10 years, I have also worked as a guide in heli-ski programs. I skied from many peaks in the territory of Kyrgyzstan, one of the famous is Lenin peak (7134 m), Korona peak (4860 m), and also skied north side of Elbrus Peak (5621 m) in Caucasus.

In addition to ski tours and mountaineering, I organize trekking programs and jeep tours.
