Description

It WOULD be my pleasure to help you conquer the Khan Tengri summit**, in the Tian-Shan Mountain Range.**

The region of the Tian-Shan mountain range is shared by Kazakhstan, China and Kyrgyzstan. Its highest peak is the Jengish Chokusu, on the Kyrgyzian-Chinese border. Its second highest peak is the great Mt Khan Tengri (7010m). It lies on the border between Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

The Khan Tengri mountain is a marble pyramid surrounded by impressive towers of more than 800 meters. From the north, this peak looks like a drop of blood with a dark blue sky as background. In fact, the Mt Khan Tengri has another name: Kan-Tau, which means Bloody Mountain.

The ascent of Mt. Khan Tengri is a wonderful experience, especially for those climbers and mountaineers with substantial prior high-mountain experience. It is also important to have a very good fitness level and be equipped enough to face very harsh conditions.

Our meeting point will be in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. I can provide advice regarding your travel plans. After that, we’ll travel to the base camp of Inylchek Glacier, where the ascent really begins.

During this 21-day expedition, we’ll move from one area to another by helicopter. We’ll also spend a couple of days acclimatizing before we make our way to the summit.

You can book your place for the months of July and August 2017. I can take a maximum of 3 participants with me. If the group is larger (up to 10 people), it’ll be necessary to add one or two guide assistants. Please check the Extra Information section for more information about what is included in the price.

If you find this trip interesting and want to join me, please contact me. We can discuss and plan the program together. I’ll be happy to guide you through the incredible Khan Tengri Peak! 

I work together with a group of guides, so if I’m not available, one of my colleagues will guide you!

I can also guide you to the summit of the beautiful Victory peak as well on this challenging 29 Day  ascent.

Mountain Guide

I'm an IFMGA-certified guide and have been guiding for the past 15 years.

I got the chance to do beautiful ascents like the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Mont Cook, McKinley, 7000m Peaks in ex-USSR, technical climbing In the Caucasus, new climbing routes in the USA, ski-touring in Alps, Russia etc.

I'm an expert in the Elbrus region. I know every corner of it and will be happy to guide you to the summit, at 5.642m high, skiing or walking.
Please get in touch with me and let's leave together for a wonderful adventure in the incredible Caucasus mountain range!

I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available, one of my colleagues will guide you!

My favorite saying: "We will either find a way, or make one".

This was my second trip together with Ivan Moshnikov. It's safe to say that everbody in our group absolutely loved it. We had a great time in Russia and it was an absolut blast. Even though we were not able to experience "true Mamay snorking powder" we still skied perfect snow for 7 days in a row. I threw my mobile in a corner in the first day and did not pick it up until 8 wonderfull days filled with skiing, amazing food, going to sauna and enyoing wonderfull company. However, if you a looking for a super lonely place, Mamay is probably not the right choice. The valley gets visited frequently by locals and other tourists. Still, there is enough place for everybody I think. 10/10 I will definitly come again. Many thanks to Yulia, Roma and Stepan!

No info from travel agent essential information about imigration cards, That mens no info that taht cards important ( No Info dont loose them). About transfer from airport was very good. Food excelent. No additional guide for ascenting Elbruss. I had different habit for ascenting. The Guide doesnt like. TIn the Summit ascenting he said that i should keep same style climbing as them. And put all responsibility on me if i wpould refuse contnues ascent to summit. So i this result bad sleep. And did not feel well to make summit ascent. I refuses to go. So that day i am ski touring myself due to arriving Caucasus. Rest was ok. Please return 250 euros . So incomplete mission

We went to Mt Elbrus ski touring in May and did not summit due to bad weather. If you want to be sure to summit I would suggest you book about 8 days as it takes at least 4 days to get altitude acclimatised to the point you can make an attempt ) and it seems the bad weather systems last about 3 days.... groups submitted the two days prior to us but no one summited for the next three due to 80 kmh winds. In regard to CetNeva, I had some trouble with communications and replies (partly caused at my end) but once that was sorted things went well. Lisa runs the admin side and is good. We did not have Ivan as a guide we had Roman - but Roman was over qualified for us but patient and pleasant despite our lack of skills and never being ready on time.

The guide was actually not Ivan Mishnikov but Denis who was a Junior guide with CetNeva. Overall the guide company is really good. Cook and the barrels where I stayed were excellent. Lisa, manager of CetNeva, were attentive and always present to help out. Guide was excellent in skills, just a little shy. Would recommend 100%. Thanks!
