Description

Join a unique Razdelnaya and Khan Tengri climbing expedition and put your mountain skills to test on a unique adventure in Kyrgyzstan!

At 6148 m., Razdelanaya is a lesser-known peak in the Pamir Mountains, but a perfect one for beginner high-altitude explorers. It is also our first summit objective on this program. Once the Raz is tackled we move on to bigger and a lot harder things as we attempt the Khan Tengri summit, at an altitude of 7,010 m in the Tian Shan range. Sound like something you might be interested in?

Our expedition will take place over the course of 26 days. We will set off from Osh and spend some time acclimatizing before tackling each summit. You can find a detailed itinerary below.

Keep in mind that you will need prior experience climbing 5000m peaks. Additionally, mountain climbing techniques are necessary to tackle Khan Tengri especially. Of course, a good fitness level is a must.

So, are you ready for a unique mountaineering expedition in Kyrgyzstan? Then contact me today and we can start working out the details to make sure you get to the top of Razdelnaya and Khan Tengri. I look forward to guiding you!
