In the tours, guests will be able to travel around Kyrgyzstan, explore the beautiful views of the mountain and also visit the Khan Tengri Peak, which is located on the border with Kazakhstan in the Issyk-Kul region.
Locals often refer to the peak as "Prince of Spirits "or"Ruler of the Sky". At different times, the peak had different names, as in the past, when exploring the mountains, the researcher made a mistake and confused it with Pobeda peak. And at first, the peak was called Kan Tau, or Blood Mountain. It was so named most likely because of the bloody sunsets or the blood of those who died while climbing the peak.
Guests on tours in Kyrgyzstan will be able to rent a car, explore the mountains and also learn that in 1931, a group from Ukraine was the first to climb and conquer the peak. At the time of the Soviet Union, people were forbidden to explore the mountains. Most likely, this was due to the fact that the territory was not fully explored. You will be invited to rent a car on tours in Kyrgyzstan, explore the charm of the Enilchek Glacier, explore Lake Merzbachera, looking at the beautiful river valleys and oezra with incredible views on the way.
