CANCELLED Alpine Club Kyrgyzstan Expedition 2020
From Saturday 25 July 2020
To Friday 21 August 2020
Contact Tom Davis-Merry
Saturday 25 July 2020

Due to the Corona virus situation this expedition has been cancelled 


25th July – 21st August 2020 (TBC)

Mountains cover 95% of the territory of Kyrgyzstan and 40% of those are above 3,000 meters high. Many regions remain unexplored and the country offers huge potential for exploratory mountaineering on peaks over 4000m at a reasonable cost. An ideal first major expedition for confident independent climbers with Alpine experience, this exploratory expedition will aim to make first ascents of several virgin 4000m peaks. The size of the expedition is not fixed but should not exceed 10 participants.
