The Tian Shan mountains are as amazing as they are expansive. Stretching through a great deal of central Asia, this mighty mountain range has a vast, magical aura to it. Thus earning the translation of its name, Heavenly Mountain. As a result of the Tian Shan mountains’ size, there are several smaller ranges found within it. The Terskey Alatau is one such range.
Located in Kyrgyzstan, the Terskey Alatau range is a stunning stretch of peaks that are just begging to be explored. And on this 9 day trip, you will have ample opportunity to traverse a great deal of the range. You will also have the added bonus of traversing it on skis, as this is a cross country skiing adventure.
There are several highlights to this trip, including the Charkuduk pass (2,875m), and the Tup and Karkara valleys. We will make our way through a large portion of the range during the days, while comfortably resting in full board accommodations in either a cottage or a Yurta, which is a portable round tent. And there is no need to worry about dragging around your equipment either because it will be transported by snowmobile!
Cross country skiing is a fantastic activity. However, spending 9 days doing it in a place as beautiful and unique as the Terskey Alatau range in the Tian Shan mountains makes it spectacular. So if you would like to join me, please send me a request.
Do you want to enjoy another adventure in Kyrgzstan? If so, I can also lead you on a 29 day excursion to the summit of Victory Peak!
Full board accommodations in cottages in Karkara, or Yurtas in a Yurta field, and a hotel in Bishkek.

I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available, either Nikolay or Victor will guide you!
My favorite saying: "We will either find a way, or make one".
