Hiking on Panfilov Heroes peak (4120m) 1 day

Peak of Panfilov Heroes at 4120m. The peak is located in the western branch of the Maloalmatinskiy ridge between Uchitel and Karlytau peaks. The very first ascent on this peak was made in 1942 by cadets of the mountain training school. There are few routes leading to the top. The routes are of various levels of difficulty, so you are free to choose an appropriate route for you but we strongly recommend you to choose the most simple, classic route. For climbing part we wouldn't need any special climbing equipment, except for helmets.

Detailed program:
We need to leave the city no later than 6am. We first meet a guide and then transfer to Medeo Sports Complex and then to Shymbulak mountain resort by taxi. Here is the point where we start hiking. First part of the road lies along the asphalt road and then continues along the dirt road, and very soon we get into the Tuyuksu gorge. Our next point is Mynzhylki tract (3000m). There is a meteorological station and mudflow dam. You can take pictures of the peaks of Tuyuksu Circus right from the top of the dam. Our further path will take us to the Alpengrad site. It is a place where climbers and tourists usually take rest and set up their tents. After that we will follow a rocky but comfortable path to Manshuk Mametova Lake. We will go around the lake to the left and finally reach the starting point of our ascent to the peak. We will climb along a long stony scree, and will need to put on our helmets. We reach the summit (on the ridge) right after walking 100 metres behind the pass. You will definitely enjoy the unforgettable panorama of the surrounding mountains that open from the top. Descent along the ascent path.
