Itinerary: Kyrgyzstan - Batken valley
Dates: from 10 to 19 August 2017
Activity: Mountain trekking
In group: min 4 person
The Turkestan mountain range region is quite interesting and unusual. It reminds South American Patagonia: same wilderness, winds blowing through, mountain streams with pure water, alpine meadows, herds of yaks grazing peacefully, glaciers surrounded by 5000+ meter peaks and not a sign of civilization…
But still there is one significant advantage of the Asian mountains before the South American analog – stable and warm weather. The mountain trails going above the steeps, wild nature, panoramic views of the canyons crowned with snow-white peaks and treks to the foot of peak Piramidalnyi (5509 m) which is the highest point of the Turkestan Range, Peak Ak-Suu (5355m), Peak Slesova (4240m) – all these will leave an unforgettable impression!
