Peak Khan Tengri

Our managers research information about Khan Tengri Peak before the start of the tours which is located at an altitude of 6995 meters above sea level. The peak due to the ice cap is 7,010 meters above sea level. During the tours, guests will be able to find out that the peak is located on the border with Kazakhstan in the Issyk-Kul region.

You will be able to explore that the peak has a name that the locals call "The Prince of Spirits" or "The Lord of the Sky". At different times, the peak had different names, as when studying the researcher P. Semenov made a mistake and confused the peak with Pobeda. But you will be able to see that at first the peak had the name Kan Tau or as it also means blood mountain. Most likely, this name was given because of the red sunsets or the blood of the jumpers.

In our tours in Kyrgyzstan, you can rent a car and explore the information that in 1931, a team from Ukraine was able to reach the top of the peak first. In the Soviet Union, people were forbidden to explore mountain ranges and territories. This was probably due to the fact that the mountains were not well explored. You can rent a car and get a closer look at the mountain view, on the way enjoy the views of the Enilchek glacier, Lake Merzbacher and also be fascinated by the views of the Dodin, rivers and gorges and lakes.
