More Info

Two large and imposing mountain ranges – the Tian Shan and Pamir mountains – dominate Kyrgyzstan’s landscape and are an inextricable part of its culture. Known as the Land of Celestial Mountains, the country is home to some of the world’s highest peaks outside Himalaya. Anciently on the famous Silk Road that connected China to the Mediterranean, Kyrgyzstan’s rich history is still a part of its present. Visit the huge bazaar in the southern city of Osh if you have the time! Karakol, on the Issyk Kul Lake, is also worth a visit.

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.

I would recommend this trip to anyone. It was such an incredible experience and Misha was the best guide one could ask for. His knowledge is incredible and he answered every one of my million questions. On top of that he is a great guy to be around. The hike is diverse and the natural beauty is second to none. Don’t miss out on this experience!

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.
