    This Short rock climbing course in Ala Archa National Park is the perfect opportunity to learn or improve your climbing skills in one of the best mountaineering areas in Kyrgyzstan.

    The Ala Archa National Park is the most famous climbing spot in Kyrgyzstan. It’s located in the Tian Shan mountain range and we can access it by driving 40 km south from Bishkek. This National Park has many outdoor attractions and beautiful scenery surrounded by mountains. It includes the Ala-Archa River gorge, which is a popular destination for climbers from all over the world.

    I’ve been guiding in this area for more than 14 years. I’m an IFMGA mountain guide and I’m a Snow Leopard, an award granted to those have climbed the highest mountains in the former Soviet Union.

    In this program, I would like to teach you not only about rock climbing techniques and movements but also about  the history of rock climbing and mountaineering in this region.

    I’ll pick you up in Bishkek and drive to the Ala Archa National Park, where we’ll hike to the mountain hut where we’ll stay. Then we’ll train a little bit in the afternoon, to check your level or learn some basic movements. During the following two days, we’ll climb some of my favorite routes in the area.

    It doesn’t matter f you are beginner or a professional climber, I can help you either way, by teaching you the basic skills or showing you the most beautiful routes in this area that I know so well.

    Sounds like an amazing plan? It is! Send me a request now and we’ll start planning your visit to the amazing Ala Archa National Park in Kyrgyzstan.  You’ll have an unforgettable adventure!

    About the Guide


    I'm an IFMGA-certified guide from Kyrgyzstan and started guiding professionally in 2003. In my 14 years of guiding, I worked as a high altitude and technical mountain guide, trekking and hiking guide, ski-touring guide and ice and rock climbing gide.

    I finished Mountaineering Instructor School in Kyrgyzstan and I am a member of the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA).

    Additionally, I am ”Snow Leopard”. This title is given to those who have climbed all the highest mountains in the former Soviet Union. These include: Lenin peak (7134 m) 2 ascents, Khan Tengri peak (7010 m) 2 ascents, Korzhenevskaya peak (7105 m) 1 ascent, Communism peak (7495 m)1 ascent, Pobeda peak (7439 m)1 ascent.

    I have worked all over the Tian-Shan and Pamir ranges. I worked as a guide in Lyallak and Dugoba, in Alla Archa National Park and Suusamyr Valley, Terskey Ala Too and Kyngei-Ala Too.

    As a mountain guide, my top 3 priorities are: 1 -safety, 2 –creating positive experiences for my clients and 3 -expedition success.

    I am a mountaineer and really love the mountains so I also spend all my free time here. I have participated in expeditions in the Himalayas, Africa, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Patagonia and Russia.

    I live and work in a beautiful mountainous country and I will be glad to show you the virgin beauty of the Kyrgyz mountains.

    What People are Saying about Anastasiya Cheremnyh


    Had a wonderful 11-day trip with Anastasiya in the beautiful Ala Archa! This was my first mountaineering experience so this trip included a lot of courses in mountaineering and climbing skills. Anastasiya was a fantastic guide and was very good at keeping everything safe, fun and sufficient challenging. Would highly recommend her. Couldn’t think of a better introduction to mountaineering.

    This rating is actually for Aleksey Pototskiy, who stepped in to be our guide when Anastasiya unfortunately had to cancel at short notice. Aleksey was fantastic. He made us feel incredibly safe, even though we’d never ice climbed before, and was extremely patient and knowledgeable. He’s a very experienced climber and mountaineer, and I’d highly recommend him as a guide to climbers of all abilities.

    The mountain guide was very professional, knowledgeable, realiable, patient, and knows speaks good english. First guide Anastasia couldn’t make it so she reffered me to another one, but she arranged everything with the second guide, including the rent of some needed equipments I didn’t have. They took care of everything. Pavel the second guide taught me a lot even I’m just a beginner, he was very patient in partaking his knowlegde and and went above and beyond in teaching me iceclimbing. He also made sure that I was very safe and had an amazing experience. Pavel, you’re a great mountain guide, I hope all guides are like you I encountered in the future. Very professional and patient. Also,Thank you for the help and information!. You are a very reliable person.
