KHAN-TENGRI EXPEDITION

Khan TengriKHAN-TENGRI EXPEDITION 
(23-day variant Bishkek – Bishkek, Normal Route from South)

Khan-Tengri (6995 m), meaning the Lord of Spirits, is the second highest peak of the Tien-Shan Mountains located near the point where the borders of Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and China meet. This huge and very beautiful icy pyramid with steep ridges and ribs attracts many climbers but any ascent of Khan-Tengri is very difficult because of extreme conditions: the frequent bad weather, the hurricane-like winds and the extremely low temperature.
