Both camps offer comfortable conditions for accommodation, and provide an ideal opportunity for rest and recovery after completion of the expedition.

Route Description

From the base camp “Achik-Tash” to “Lukovaya Polana” (Onion field), is a one hour hike along an dirt road, but can be covered in a vehicle. Then a good trail over Travelers’ Pass, continuing at the foot of the slope of the spurs on the right side of Lenin Glacier, arrives at camp №  1 (ABC) after 4 or 5 hours. Camp № 1 is located on the glacial moraine of Lenin Peak. Before reaching the moraine, it is necessary to cross a river.

Usually, it is necessary to leave Camp №1 for Camp №2 an hour before sunrise, in order to avoid the heat and wet snow.  Crossing the moraine, coming to the bottom of Northern Slope, it is necessary put on mountaineering boots and for members of the party to tether together. It is important that the length of the rope between mountaineers should not be less than 10 meters.  The ascent should be achieved by the Northern sharp slope, to the left of the icefall, avoiding multiple ice crevices. The most difficult and dangerous places should be equipped with a parapet. The upper part of the route goes to the right, before the big ice plateau named “Skovorodka”.  It is necessary to cross the plateau from the left to the right. Camp №2, lies at an altitude of 5300 meters, on the upper moraine at the foot of the Northern-West crest. The time from camp №1 to camp №  2 is usually 7-9 hours.

Bike Tour in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is a paradise for cyclists as one can find here routes of any level of difficulty. Being a mountainous country Kyrgyzstan offers a wide range of landscapes and roads that take you from alpine meadows to the sandy beaches, nomadic families who will welcome you into their yurt for a taste of the kumis (fermented mare’s milk) and big role in all of this plays Issyk Kul Lake.

It’s very often you can hear European people call Kyrgyzstan – “Asian Switzerland”, however virgin mountains and rich nature exceed foot worn European Alps with its pureness and wilderness. Historical and cultural aspects of Kyrgyzstan are very interesting as well. We still have all attributes of nomadic life.

Only in Kyrgyzstan, in summer time, we can see yurts (portable nomadic houses, decorated with felt carpets), real nomads (always kind and welcomed) and their horses who always at your service to ride if only you would like to.

Itinerary: Bishkek – Ala Archa Natural Park – Issyk Kul Lake – Korgomdu Bulak Pass – Tosor pass – Teshik Kul Lake – Eki-Narin Gorge – Son Kul Lake – Tash Rabat Caravanserai – Bishkek.
