Peak Khan Tengri

Kyrgyzstan is a beautiful country that attracts with its mountain ranges and peaks. Now we want to provide you with information about the peak of Khan Tengri, which has a peak of 6995 meters above sea level. And the ice cap makes an altitude of 7010 meters above sea level. And tourists on tours in Kyrgyzstan will be able to go on a trip to the Issyk-Kul region and see the peak on the border with Kazakhstan.

The local population most often called the peak as "The Prince of Spirits” or "The Lord of the Sky". But in tours of Kyrgyzstan, you can see that the peak had different names in different time periods. And the reason for this is that the researcher P. Semenov made a mistake in the description and confused peak with Pobeda. The peak had an original name as Kan Tau or translated as Blood Mountain. Most likely it was so named because of the blood of the ascenders, or red sunsets similar to blood.

For tours in Kyrgyzstan, tourists have a unique chance to rent a car and go on comfortable tours. In the tours, you can get information that in 1931, a team from Ukraine was able to climb the top of the peak first. During the existence of the Soviet Union, people were forbidden to explore the peaks and mountain ranges. This was most likely due to the fact that the territory of the mountains was not fully explored. It will be possible to see the mountain closer in tours of Kyrgyzstan, enjoy the views of the Enilchek glaciers, Lake Merzbacher and rent a car for this purpose. Also during the trip, you will be able to marvel at the incredible views of clean rivers, lakes and valleys.
