    Join me for a trekking adventure on the Inylchek glaciers in Kyrgyzstan. My proposal involves a hike along some of the valleys in this beautiful area, where you will enjoy breathtaking landscapes, from the magnificent glaciers to the clear waters of Merzbacher Lake.

    We’ll be trekking along impressive paths, next to moraines and seracs, and under the region’s most stunning peaks — including Pobeda Peak (7439m) and Khan Tengri (7010m). Some of the mountains in this region have never been climbed!

    Please be aware that weather conditions during the trip won’t be easy, with nighttime temperatures often dropping below O°C. A very good fitness level is a pre-requisite for the trip as we will be trekking for over 7 hours a day in a high mountain environment (often above 4000m). More than 50% of our trek will be over glaciated terrain. 

    Please find a detailed itinerary below.  I promise an incredible 11-day adventure that will stay engraved in your memory forever!

    So if you are ready for a serious challenge in the Kyrgyzstan mountains, request to book this trips and reserve your spot!
