     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 trekking, rock and Big Wall climbing. Mild climate, stable sunny weather, clearest rivers, alpine meadows, glaciers surrounded by over 5000-meters summits, whose vertical, kilometer-long walls throne over green valleys, make this area real Mekka not only for for climbers, but trekkers as well.
     The path takes us through picturesque valleys, a simple pass, amazing canyons, fresh alpine meadows and foamy currents. The trek also gives interesting cultural experience by our meeting with always hospitable Kyrghyz shepherds. Drinking tea in their yurts, we get to know their original culture that has changed little for centuries of nomadic life. This trek is designed for those travelers who like active rest in trekking with diverse landscapes, enjoy sitting beside a night camping fire under the sky full of stars and are keen to know the peculiar culture of the land, that only few tourists visit. The best time for trekking is from July to September.

We offer 2 variants of this trek: 14 days with a stay in permanent tent camps on trekking and 12 days expedition-style trekking.

Uzgarysh is a typical Kyrgyz mountain village with established centuries-old lifestyle. The country folk are amicable and hospitable. The majority of the local villagers are engaged in animal husbandry, tobacco cultivation and flour milling at small watermills. Gardening, too, is a great help for the locals. Apricot is the most common fruit-tree. The fruit is extremely sweet but not big enough to satisfy you appetite after first bite. It’s amazing, but due to unique climatic conditions, you can taste the ripe apricot right from the fruit-tree even in mid-August. In addition to being eaten fresh it is often dried up for wintertime. Dried apricot, called kuraga, is really finger-licking good.

Day 3 Hiking to Aktash tent camp (15 km; 7-8 hrs; + 1400 m.) The first trekking day starts from the views of wild pistachio trees and walnut orchards.

An old man who lived in the mountains had two sons-twins. Their names were Asan and Usen.  He brought them up as warriors and was very happy with the result. What do you need more when you get old? But a war started and both sons were killed in the battles. And then the man who got out of his mind because of the grief and sorrow, rose his arms up to the sky and asked Allakh: Oh, Allakh! You give the lifes, you take them. Return my sons to me, and take my life instead. Let it be so!» And Allakh heard his pray, and the ground opened and high peaks rose up on the spot. Many centuries went on, and people call the two bastions, standing next to each other at the beginning of Karavshin river, the names of the two sons Asan (4230 m) and Usen (4378 m).

Day 2

After lunch drive to a small village of Uzgarish via Batken town (360 km, 7-8 hrs, +500 m). Guest house accommodation. Trekking preparations. 1450 m ASL.

Uzgarysh is a typical Kyrgyz mountain village with established centuries-old lifestyle. The country folk are amicable and hospitable. The majority of the local villagers are engaged in animal husbandry, tobacco cultivation and flour milling at small watermills. Gardening, too, is a great help for the locals. Apricot is the most common fruit-tree. The fruit is extremely sweet but not big enough to satisfy you appetite after first bite. It’s amazing, but due to unique climatic conditions, you can taste the ripe apricot right from the fruit-tree even in mid-August. In addition to being eaten fresh it is often dried up for wintertime. Dried apricot, called kuraga, is really finger-licking good. Now we drive into the village and stay over in the guesthouse or tent camp. From the village we’ll continue our journey accompanied by horse drivers and their graceful quiet horses which can help us carry the loads throughout the whole journey.

Day 3 Trekking from the Laily-Mazar river valley to its confluence with the Uryam river (10 km; 6-8 hrs; + 300 m.) The morning sun hasn’t yet beamed down on the valley gardens but in the camp the life is already in full swing. The substantial breakfast leaves no chance for loosing weight. After short preparations we set up for our first day of trekking. Soon enough the vain thoughts start to flash across your mind that you should have been training for the trek instead of wasting time. But the farther you go this is interrupted by more cheerful thoughts, like “ My goodness! Can it be real? Isn’t it a dream? How beautiful it is here!”. Now, approaching Laily-Mazar canyon and becoming more and more enchanted by the surrounding landscapes we reach the right tributary of the river. They say, in the upper reaches of the river every spring there blooms up a virtually extinct flower “Aigul” which according to a popular legend can be found only here and in one or two canyons in Batkent region. The symbolic image of this flower can be traced in many Kyrgyz ornaments. So if you happen to encounter this peculiar “distinctive feature” of Kyrgyztan, you will easily recognize it. Step by step, marching along the mountain path, we reach the locality intended for the camp. The camp site is chosen in a really picturesque setting, next to a mountain stream whose murmur will serve you a sweet lullaby. (2100 m).
Day 4 Hiking from the confluence of the Laily-Mazar and Uryam rivers to the confluence of the Laily-Mazar and Sabakh rivers - the upper reaches of the Sabakh river. (8 km; 7-9 hrs; +900 m). A new day starts and everyone is concerned about the weather we are going to feature today. There are always natural ‘forecasts’ all around, and you are just to observe the surroundings. Today eagles are hovering high in the sky, loud shrills of grey partridge are heard from the high grass. These are the indications of a warm sunny day. Grey partridge is a common game bird of the area. It likes to hide in high grass and only when being startled the whole flock suddenly take flight just from under the feet. This is accompanied by a loud shrill series of the frightened birds. A short detour to the bridge and we again walk up the picturesque Laily-Mazar valley. This is not a leisurely journey as we are to reach the river confluence before lunch and then to ascend along the Sabakh river canyon. The river valley is dotted with birch trees lining the river banks, juniper thickets scattered all around, and even mountain ashes that spread out on the canyon slopes. Here and there rocks bear the tracks of ancient glacier activity. We reach the foot of the lower moraine where we pitch a camp on a cozy glade. The nature itself seems to have created this ideal site for the camp: the imposing rocks covered with juniper trees of peculiar forms guard the tents of the travelers. After a long and a bit tiresome trekking we can now relax, delight in a delicious dinner and have a full night of sound sleep. (3000 m).
Day 5 Radial trek to Sabakh peak (5300m). (8 km; 3-5 hrs; +600 m -600 m).
Today’s trekking pace is rather relaxed and comfortable. We’ll make a radial passage to Sabakh peak (5283m). First we’ll ascend the moraine rampart from the top of which one can see a beautiful panorama of mountain valley with a small river meandering amongst pastoral setting. This is also the place of herdsmen camps. We’ll make a stop and visit one of these camps to find out more about herdsmen’s life in the severe conditions of highlands. Continuing our way to the peak we cross one more moraine rampart behind which Sabakh Peak opens up in its full splendour. Standing at the foot of this forbidding 5000-metre-high giant we feel the cold breath of the glacier. The high altitude mountainscape is really spectacular. The pictures of the Peak itself taken from different angles present this giant differently depending on the light. After a short rest and energizing lunch at the foot of the Peak we’ll set out for our return trip. The pleasant descent will bring us to the camp where the warmest welcome and hot, delicious dinner await us. (3000 m).
Day 6 Crossing of Udobniy pass (4140m) to the Uryam river valley (7 km; 7-9 hrs; +1100 m -1100 m). The height of Udobniy pass cannot embarrass high-spirited trekkers. So after breakfast we’ll start our ascent. Your efforts will be well rewarded. The view that opens from the pass is absolutely magnificent, almost spellbinding. We stop here to savour the grand vistas: a fantastic panorama of the Uryam river valley and neighbouring ridges with their majestic peaks including Parus (Sail) peak (4883m). It really looks like a filled out sail. The peak is much loved by local and international climbers. Elated by the thrilling sight we descend to the valley. The camp will be pitched on a mountain meadow next to the river and we ‘ll have a long-expected rest in this idyllic location. Sitting round the dinner table laid in a warm cozy dining tent, surrounded by the fellow-travellers, you can congratulate each other on the first pass you have surmounted, and exchange the impressions of the day. (3000 m).
Day 7 Rest day and radial hike to the upper reaches of the Uryam river (4-7 km; 3-5 hrs; + 400 m -400 m). This scenic place dispose to relaxation and there is nothing shameful in your wish to just lounge on the grass or to loaf around. The most active, though, are invited to make a short hiking along the river meandering amongst the ancient moraines, and en route to marvel at the views of snow-topped peaks, a succession of lush meadows and juniper groves which remind Japanese gardens carefully groomed by a gardener. This is the land of pastures and now and then we encounter the herdsmen’s camps. A good opportunity for us to meet the local people, spend some time in their company and enjoying a cup of tea and a friendly chat to appreciate their well-known hospitality. (3000 m)
Day 8 Crossing the Uryam Pass (3760m) to the Ak-Mechet river valley, to the confluence of two rivers - the Ak-Suu and the Kara-Suu. (8 km; 6-8 hrs; +750 m -900 m). Today’s goal is to ascend Uryam pass. Though in height it’s inferior to the previous pass it is no less spectacular. Approaching the pass once again we can see Parus peak, this time towering behind us, with a bladelike Sabakh peak emerging from behind it on the left. As we proceed further we can delight in observing the majestic views of the valley where the Ak Suu and Kara Suu rivers interflow into the wide, rapid Ak-Mechet river. And then, just in front of us, there comes into sight one more range crowned with glaciers. It separates Aksu peak region from Karavshin region. The cone-shaped snow-capped Aksu peak (5355m), which to the north drops off in almost vertical two-kilometre-deep rock precipice, attracts the mountaineers from all over the world. The majestic view of this natural amphitheatre is accentuated by imposing crecent-shaped Iskander peak (51220m), Admiralteyets peak (5090m) Petrogradets peak (5163m) and Blok Peak (5239m). The descent is rather comfortable and soon we reach our campsite. It is arranged at the height of 2800 m, where you can feel the warmth of the summer air and smell the rich coniferous fragrance of the juniper wood. Sunset is the best time for picture-perfect views of Aksu peak. (2860 m.).
Day 9 Rest day and radial hike to the foot of Aksu peak (5355 m). (8 km; 4 - 5 hrs; +700 m -700 m). Today we’ll trek to the glacier that lies under the tops of several peaks - Blok, Aksu, Admiralteyets, Petrogradets and Iskander. Today hardly anyone would prefer idling in the camp to trekking to a spectacular destination. Though the glacier itself is hidden under the moraine and there will be only few occasions to feel its ice-cold breath through the sole of your trekking boots, the view that awaits us at the end is worth the effort. After several hours trekking you will find yourself standing in front of a 2-km-high Black wall of Aksu peak that seems to rise up from out of nowhere and to tower above you with all its might. We’ll have the lunch at the Aksu river which springs from the glacier sliding from under Blok peak. Being among these eternal towering rocks fills you with a sense of belonging to macrocosm. We’ll come back to the campsite by sunset and the fantastic images of the day will stay in your memory for long. (2860 m.).
Day 10 Descent to the Ak-Mechet river and further to Uzgarysh village (14 km; 6-8 hrs; -1060 m). Today you will experience a relaxing stroll down the river. The juniper woods all around fill the air with coniferous fragrance and lift your spirits. The trail runs through alpine grassland dotted with flowers of every colour. And suddenly realizing that this is your last trekking day, you try to imprint in your memory, as well as to capture on your cameras, the stunningly beautiful surroundings. Who knows when there will be another chance to delight in the world of wilderness. Meanwhile we approach the river’s outfall and enter the Laily-Mazar valley. Our circuit closes up in Uzgarysh village where our trekking programme is completed with a celebration dinner. Today you can give vent to your appetite and eat your fill, since so many delicious dishes were prepared by our cook, and then to relax and share wine and laughter with new-found friends while recollecting every day of the adventurous journey. (1800 m).
Day 11 Transfer from Uzgarysh village to Osh (290 km; 7-8 hrs; -800 m). Today we return to the warmth of Osh where the benefits of civilization await you: numerous cafes and restaurants, comfortable hotels, supermarkets and bazaars, and free Internet access. Osh offers many interesting souvenirs that can become a good keepsake to remind you about your trip to mountainous Kyrgyzstan: felt yurt, Kyrgyz national hats, musical instruments and many other bric-a-brac that can catch your fancy. Hotel accommodation (1000 m).
