     The part of Turkestan Range (Pamir Alai mountain system) on the very western corner of Kyrgyzstan, which reminds South-American Patagonia, is most suitable place in former USSR for rock and Big Wall climbing. Mild climate, stable sunny weather, clearest rivers, alpine meadows, glaciers surrounded by 5000-meters summits make this area real Mekka for climbers.
     On every summit you can make your own original route. The best time for climbing - July-September. The duration of the expedition depends on your plans and as a rule it takes from 15 to 35 days. All the ascents are started from the base camp.

We offer 2 climbing trip: Variant 1 - in Lailak (Aksu) canyon and Variant 2 - in Karavshin canyon, both 22 or 24 days long. You can order trip Bishkek-Bishkek (24 days), Osh-Osh or Batken-Batken (22 days). Bishkek and Osh have international airports, Batken - local flights Bishkek-Batken-Bishkek only. There are 2 separate BCs operating in Laylak Canyon and Karavshin Canyon respectively. Custom list service trips are also available upon demand.

Warning! These climbing trips are intended for experienced climbers only! Most of the routes are potentially very dangerous! Previous rock climbing skill and full set of rock climbing gear are mandatory as well as climbing insurance!
