Jyrgalan Trek, Crossing the Mountain Pass - Kyrgyzstan

Jyrgalan Trek, Crossing the Mountain Pass - Kyrgyzstan

Trekking, Kyrgyzstan style. Azamat, one of our Kyrgyz horsemen, pulls up at an 11,400 feet (3,475 meters) pass, looking south across the Teskey Ala-Too subrange of the Tian Shan Mountains. Our guide, Sascha, points us to the second and final pass we’ll cross that day. Over the course of three days, we hiked 55 kilometers (34 miles) over three mountain passes and across a string of high alpine lakes. We were grateful for Azamat and his crew to carry tents and food as we focused our attention on the trek, the atmosphere, and broad landscapes like these. Taken on the Jergalan (Jyrgalan) Valley Hike from the town of Jergalan en route to Karakol on the southeastern shore of Lake Issyk-Kul, Kyrgyzstan. via Instagram http://ift.tt/2bMev7z
