Peaks Of Tien Shan

We discover forest valleys and alpine meadows of the Central Tien Shan, where Kazakh and Kyrgyz nomads live. We walk across glaciers of Tien Shan to the foot of Khan Tengri Peak (7010 m) and Pobedy Peak (7439 m). We start our first day with drive to Karkara Base Camp. En route we visit the Canyons of Charyn River. Next day we have a horse riding trip and guest visit to nomads, who live in yurtas. We have a dramatic helicopter flight to the Base Camp on the South Inylchek Glacier (4000 m). Here in the heart of Great Tien Shan you have three-day unforgettable hikes to the foot of peaks over 7000m. On the final day we visit highlights of Almaty-State Museum, Orient Bazaar, Museum of Musical Folk Instruments, Russian Orthodox Cathedral and Muslim Mosque - the largest in Central Asia. Evening Farewell dinner in traditional style will finish our visit to Tien Shan.
