Kirgski. Into the Valley of Ice. 


A first week of pulling our sledges up the beautiful Kara-Say valley, fuel problems and some summit attempts in the Ak-Shirak range.  

In the last few days before leaving we finished all the kit preparations, and after a stressful transit via Lyon and Istanbul airport (we had over 200 kg of gear) we made it to Bishkek. There we were warmly welcomed by Mathieu and Caroline, who gave us a place to sleep, and Alex, who had helped so much with the logistics.

Into the Tian Shan (part I)

NEED TO KNOW We all had heaps of respect for the river and knew there would be some serious rapids and must-make moves. Just like the Stikine River, the Sary-Jaz has an ultra-deep canyon full of challenging rapids. It also has the bonus of flowing through the heart of Central Asia’s Tian Shan Mountains, meaning that almost every bend in the glacier-fed river revealed another snow-capped alpine view. It was bananas. The Sary-Jaz is my new favorite river!
