Mountaineers and trekkers can find mountains very attractive and consider they are good for alpinism. During the Soviet Union, the non-residents were not able to visit mountains, as well as most of the Soviet mountaineers, who were struggling to get permissions for expeditions. The expeditions were aimed at investigation and letting people know about Kyrgyzstan. Nowadays there are still some restrictions to follow - in border zones, for the reason of travelling. Weather creates main difficulties for visitors by the risks of avalanches.
The Snow Leopard is the award that was given to those who were able to summit all five peaks over 7, 000 meters of the former Soviet Union. Two peaks are in Kyrgyzstan (one of which is Peak Lenin that borders them), two are in Tajikistan. About 600 climbers managed to summit peaks in the former Soviet Union.
Mountains can be rather dangerous and to avoid this it is advised to go in tours along with a company or other professional alpinists. Our managers are ready to find a tour in frames of your desires and abilities. All information about this country will be given in our company and we wish you to have an overwhelming holiday. Mountains and nature welcomes you!
