Jan, Feb, Mar
Located in the Jalal-Abad Region of Kyrgyzstan, Arslanbob is one of the best places in Central Asia for ski trips. Winter activities are becoming very popular in this area, and, year after year, people from all over the world come here to get a taste of these thrilling white mountains. If you are looking for an adventure and you love skiing, I invite you to join me on this exciting trip!
Arslanbob offers everything you need to fall in love with its landscapes and sport activities. The Fergana mountains separate the cold Tien-Shan Mountains from the hot plains of Fergana Valley, creating the perfect weather for ski tours.
On this occasion, I propose to you a 6-Day ski experience around different places in Arslanbob. The famous walnut forest will be the highlight of our trip! From 1500 to 2000 meters above sea level, we will find the best slopes for our ski adventure. My favorite part of it is to ski through the largest walnut forest on earth, surrounded by those ancient trees! I guarantee you will have a fabulous time!
However, this spectacular woodland forest is not the only attraction in the area. We will also be skiing down the slopes of Boobash-Ata Mountain (4430m) and admiring the best landscapes that Arslanbob has to offer!
In this program we will reach 3000m. Therefore, you need to be experienced in ski touring and be physically prepared for this challenge!
The Arslanbob mountains are my playground! And I will be excited to show you around. Send me a request to book this trips and immerse yourself in this white paradise. I will be happy to guide you through it!

I have more than 20 summit ascents with clients on 7000 m mountains. I have been skiing for all my life. I completed education at Ski Instructor School (NRLI) on the ISIA system. I have experience in organising and conduction of ski tour programs on the territory of Kyrgyzstan for more than 10 years, I have also worked as a guide in heli-ski programs. I skied from many peaks in the territory of Kyrgyzstan, one of the famous is Lenin peak (7134 m), Korona peak (4860 m), and also skied north side of Elbrus Peak (5621 m) in Caucasus.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
