Peak Khan Tengri

We want to provide you with information about the peak known as Khan Tengri, the peak peak is 6995 meters above sea level. The peak has an ice cap and the height is due to this 7010 meters above sea level. In tours of Kyrgyzstan, everyone can explore the territory of the peak, which is located in the Issyk-Kul region, and on the border with Kazakhstan.

As you know, the local population calls the peak as the "Prince of Spirits" or "Lord of the Sky". In the past, the peak had different names, and in different time periods, as the user at that time confused the peaks and gave the wrong name to Pobeda peak. In the beginning, the peak had in the past the name Kan Tau, or as it means (Blood Mountain). And that meant most likely because of the blood of the dead, or because of the red sunsets.

Guests on tours can rent a car, and explore the beautiful scenery. In 1931, for the first time, a group from Ukraine was able to conquer the top of the peak. But in the days of the Soviet Union, people could not explore the peak, as it was forbidden to climb to the top. Perhaps because of the unexplored territory. During the tours, guests will be able to see the beautiful views of the Enilcek Glacier in a rented car from our company, enjoy the charm of Lake Merzbacher, and learn a lot about the amazing valleys, gorges and rivers.
