Extreme Trekking - Fedchenko World's Longest Glacier


For Extreme-Trekker and experienced mountaineers we present an exclusive tour to the longest glaciers of the world in the Pamir mountains Tajikistan. Along the route you have the chance to discover more than ten glaciers of different types. The highlight of the tour is of course the magnificent Fedtshenko glacier. With 70-km length and a width between 2 and 3 km it is the worldwide longest glacier beyond the polar areas. Miles around no human soul, only the meteorology station "Fedtshenko" stands here like a monument for the human civilisation.

The tour takes place from September to October and partially runs on a height of more than 4000 metres. The use of mountaineer's technique and equipment (see details - equipment) is absolutely necessary.

The group size is limited up to 4 participants (tourists). An experienced Instructer and his assistant provide the coordination and the security of the group. Every participant carries equipment, food and personal things by himself. To the simplification there is a possibility to transport a part of the food to the Gurm Grschimailo glacier by vehicles. We organise transport, lodging and catering for you.
