    You will find Kegety gorge on Kyrgyz ridge’s northern slopes. It’s not so far from Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan.

    Kegety gorge has a total length of 30 km with a main river in its bottom. Several tributaries are born from it but the most famous is the Kel-Tor one. It’s really beautiful!

    On top of Kegety gorge there is a turquoise mountain lake. During this trekking tour we’ll reach there at 2.725 meters of height. This trail first follows the right side of the gorge, which is surrounded by the best tree species, such as rowan berries or honeysuckle between many others.

    And as if it was not enough, when we pass the lake we can find glaciers and moraines of Kel-Ter and Anastasya peaks. Continuing with the hike we’ll reach to other amazing gorges.

    About 5 or 6 km later, there is a small stream that forms a 20-meter waterfall. This waterfall crashes down from calcareous terrace giving us a marvelous scenery.

    The last section of the hike offers another amazing tributary called Jailoo, located 11 km far form the forestry. This gorge creates a hole, nowadays known by disused mines.

    In conclusion, this one-day guided trek around Kegety gorge will be great and I want you to come with me. It’s suitable for all levels and can be adapted to your wishes.

    All you have to do is contacting me now so we can plan together such an adventure in the northern slopes of Kyrgyz ridge.

    About the Guide


    I was born in what is now Bishkek, the Capital City of Kyrgyz Republic (used to be Frunze, the Capital of Kyrgyz Soviet Socialist Republic) and live there ever since.

    I started guiding professionally in 2004. I guide groups and individuals in technical and high altitude climbing, ski-tours, backcountry skiing, rock-climbing, ice climbing. I can also provide training facilities and organize trekking programs.

    My main priorities in guiding are client safety and expedition success and therefore, my professional motto is “Never climb with strangers”.

    In 2011, I finished my training with the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide School. The school is supported by Mammut and the Swiss and British Mountain Guide Associations and follows the IFMGA standards. Upon completion of the course and passing necessary tests I was qualified as a Mountain Guide. I am also qualified in mountain rescue and first aid by Mountaineering Instructor School in Kyrgyzstan (2012) and a member of the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA) since the Autumn of 2009 where I serve as an instructor and examiner for the National Mountain Guide courses.

    In my 13 years of guiding, I have worked all over Tien-Shan and Pamir in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and China and East Sayan and Lake Baikal areas in Russia. I have arranged several ski tour and backcountry skiing programs in the Ala Archa national park, Suusamyr valley, Kyrghyz Ala Too, Chong Kemin gorge, Kumtor glacier, and Terskey Ala Too.

    In 2009-2016 I worked as a high altitude guide at the Lenin Peak (7134 m), Khan Tengri Peak (7010 m), Pobeda Peak (7439 m), and Muztag Ata Peak (7546 m). As a mountaineering expert, I also have participated in 6 expeditions.

    Presently I have over 100 ascents of different difficulty. The most significant of them are: Pobeda peak (7439 m) 1 ascent; Lenin peak (7134 m) 13 ascents; Muztag Ata (7546 m) 1 ascent; Khan Tengri (7010 m) 1 ascent; Korona peak 1st tower ED2 Smirnov route, winter conditions; Free Korea peak ED1 George Lowe route, winter conditions; Bachachekey peak 4 routes ED1 Kusmenko, Shwab, Polik, Ilyshenko; Ak-Too peak TD route, first ascent, winter conditions; Tarasova(Slovenia) TD route, winter conditions; Simagina peak TD+ route, winter conditions.

    My sport climbing level: 7a-7b on sight, 7c-8a red point.

    Please get in touch with me if you are interested to come and discover the mountains of my region.
