Description

A massive mountain, Muztagh Ata  (7,546m) is a spectacular peak, rising high in the Tibetan Plateau. And over the course of 25 days, I would like to guide you to the top of this incredible mountain and back down on a thrilling, unforgettable splitboarding descent.

While Muztagh Ata is an enormous mountain, yet the ascent is actually quite accessible, as there are no excessively difficult sections. However, because of its immense size, participants need to be in excellent physical condition. You should also have prior splitboarding experience in mountainous conditions as well. Moreover, you will be given plenty of time to properly acclimatize during the ascent as well. Hence ensuring you feel fresh and energetic during the expedition.

The trip will begin in either Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan or Kashgar, China, depending on what is most convenient for you. Either way, we will make our way to Kashgar, then on to the village of Subashi. In the village, you will get to see the stunning Karakul lake, and when you look up, you will see the majestic Muztagh Ata mountain. The following day, we will set up camp at the peak’s base camp. And from there, we will take our time and ascend the great mountain, before reaching the summit and descending down its slopes of deep snow.

Splitboarding on a mountain that rises over 7,500 metres is an incredible experience. And on this 25 day expedition, it is an experience I would be happy to guide you on. So send me a request, join me on the Muztagh Ata, and have the time of your life.

Are you looking for a shorter splitboard tour in the mountains? Then join me on this 8 day splitboarding adventure in the Terskey mountains of Kyrgyzstan.

Accommodation

We will be camping at base camp as well as 3 various high camps during the ascent and staying in various hotels in Kashgar, Naryn city and Bishkek.

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
