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. Two days of shopping and repacking and we were on the bus to Karakol.
Next day was the 15th of March, the first day we would be in the mountains…
Into the Tian Shan (part II)
From the Mag (C&K Winter 2016): Sam Sutton blurs through the first of three cracks in the “Eyes of God” gorge of Kyrgyzstan’s Sary-Jaz River. The channelized constriction of glacial high-volume flows marked the final test of a seven-day descent for an international team of some of the world’s best expedition kayakers this fall. Photographer Erik Boomer documents the full adventure through Central Asia’s Tian Shan Mountains, down the harrowing “Stikine-like” canyons in Part I, and shuttling out on a Soviet Mi-8 helicopter in this conclusion to his two-part photo essay.
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!
