Over the past 20 years, guides of the Two Blades Adventures team have been discovering the most distant corners of our planet. We explored the remote mountainous regions of different countries, searching for crystal clear lakes, rivers, deep gorges, adrenaline, and places, the energy of which you feel with your whole body.
We visited 5 out of 6 continents and found a place that has sunk into our hearts and will leave a deep imprint on your heart too.
In the Summer of 2022, we will go to the Tien Shan Moutains again. This is a vast mountain range located on the territory of Kyrgyzstan and stretching from West to East of the country for more than 2800 kilometers.
The Tien Shan mountain range was an integral part of the Great Silk Road, the main trade route between China and Europe in ancient times. Numerous caravans and wanderers overcame mountain passes and raging streams of roaring rivers flowing from the slopes of the Tien Shan and cutting deep canyons in these majestic mountains.
Kyrgyzstan is a mysterious country with a great history, friendly and open people, and a huge potential for various areas of outdoor activities, traveling, and unforgettable adventures.
Description of the trip:
This will be a 2-week long trip around the wonderful places of the Tien Shan Mountains. Magnificent mountain landscapes, snowy peaks, heavy roads, high-altitude lakes, warm climate, and the mesmerizing life of nomadic peoples. We will plunge into the charm of these places, spend the nights in yurts, get acquainted with the national cuisine, and taste kumis — a drink based on horse milk. Everything else you will see with your own eyes.
Our route will take place at an altitude of 1500 to 4000 meters above sea level. On our route, we will see big mountains, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, overnight stays on the banks of mountain rivers, herds of horses and mountain sheep, meetings and communication with local shepherds, swimming in glacial lakes, incredibly beautiful starry sky, songs by the fire, high mountain passes, interesting stories, and roads. Roads that will not leave you indifferent, whether you are a beginner traveler or an experienced adventurer.
