Mountaineering Course (Beginner & Advanced)


Theoretical and practical mediation of basic techniques of  mountaineering with ascent of the summits "Bolshoi Igizak" (4100 m, 1B), Bivouacking (3800m, 1B), Hamsoya Centralnaya (2B) & for the most prepared ones - Hirs rock (2B).

In the mountains of the Pamir-Alaya, between the mountain chains of Hissar and Zerafschan rise the Fan Mountains - an interchange of short, but high mountain chains. This region is recently known, however, it is already from huge interest in the mountaineers scene. The summits of the region – Bodchona, Tschapdara, Zamok, Mirali, Tschimtarga, Maria, Energiya, Zindon, Aurondag and Rudaki demand a high degree in attention and good preparation. This is a compelling demand, because the known routes are between the difficulty category IV-VI. The investigation of the region started in the 30s, but the region became very popularly with the expeditions of the Kazakh alpine club which took place since 1966. The fan mountain massif is a centre of significant ice formations: Glaciers lie down between three main mountain chains and are concentrated predominantly on the north slopes. Not only the high summits and narrow gulches with thundering rivers are typical for the fan region, but also a huge number of lakes which lend the rough mountainous region an especially nice shine.
