Tien Shan - "The Sky Mountains" is one of the world's biggest and highest mountain land on the south of Central Asia where virtually all kinds of mountain outdoors are possible - from easy trekking to extremely difficult mountaineering. Pobeda peak (7,439 m) is the highest summit of this land. The entire area keeps ecological purity and untouched wild nature so far.

The northern steep slopes of Pobeda peak is covered with great amounts of ice and snow and formes a giant wall above 7,000 m high and 4 km long. Practically uninterrupted strong winds which raise snowstorms make the climbing really extreme adventure. It is said that the ascent of Pobeda Peak can be compared with the conquest of Everest from the northern side. The most difficult routes (as well as the 1st ascent route in 1956, leader - V.M. Abalakov) lie on the center of northern wall of Pobeda and from her east spurs, but the ascents usually are accomplished along the most safe way - over Vaja Pshavela (West Pobeda) peak from the Dikiy pass. We offer the climbing by this relatively safe route with acclimatization ascent to Khan Tengri Camp 2 at 5300 m. All the participants who will succesfuly climbed the Pobeda peak will be awarded with special diploma.

Day 1 Arrival to Bishkek. Meeting at airport. Transfer to Karkara BC (2200 m). Tent accommodation (comfortable 2-person tents on wooden pedestal).
