Hiking in Tien Shan

Trekking in Tian Shan is more than adventure...It is about great experience guided by experts, within reach

In the "TREKKING" section we are pleased to offer a number of different 1-day and days-long trekking and hiking routes in Zailisky Alatau area.
A uniqueness of North Tian Shan is in its diversity: any climatic zone of the region can be found here in a very short distance: steppes and glaciers, clement climate of leaf wood and severe cold of snow peaks. A Fauna of Zailisky Alatau is also multifarious. Lucky trekkers meet endemic “eliks” – small goats, “maral”-deers, foxes and badgers in a forest zone. Marmots and mountain ibexes (“tau-teke”) are the habitants of the foothills (“alpine meadows zone”). And even threatened snow leopard sometimes appears in mountain rocky labyrinths.

Meanwhile, such a wilderness influences trekking conditions: please note that trekking in North Tien Shan is not the same in Nepal or Alps. In higher areas there are no trails, no signs and no any hiking infrastructure like huts, shower, toilets, shops etc. There is no cellular connection in mountains. The relief is severe: in some points there is no path at all; you have to be ready to hike sometimes by steep/stony slopes and to set tent camp everywhere you plan to sleep.

For the tours we provide: transport, National park entry fees, professional mountain guide services, foodstuff, living tents, trekking kitchen gear and gas, tableware, special climbing equipment and ropes. For the groups of 5 persons and more we provide 2 guides, for the groups over 10 people – 3 guides. Porter services (for personal and common gear) upon individual request.
