Description

National Park Ala-Archa - is one of the most beautiful places in Kyrgyzstan. Here, on a small area you can see many interesting natural sites - forests, grasslands, rivers, waterfalls, glaciers, rock walls, as well as not frightened wild animals. Also Ala-Archa is one of the best mountaineering areas. There are hundreds of routes of varying difficulty for everyone.

Peak Uchitel (Teacher) – is one of the highest peaks, which can be ascended without technical equipment and specialized training. The altitude is 4540 meters. All the way is walking on the stone scree and snow. The main difficulties, which can be faced, are physical activity and height, or frost and strong wind. Short drive and easy approach of route make this summit very popular among beginner climbers and fans of outdoor activities. But with all this simplicity you should not forget that the mountains are a source of a danger. Therefore, to approach even to the simplest ascent should be a responsible and objective assessment of own strength.

From the top there is a spectacular view. On the one hand you will see a significant part of the Kyrgyz ridge and on the other Chui valley and the city of Bishkek.

The program is designed for residents of Bishkek, as well as for guests who enjoy outdoor activities and want to have interesting journey for 3 free days. Often Uchitel Peak is recommended to climb in terms of acclimatization before more serious programs. And it is a wonderful addition to programs either for ski tour or car travel.

This program is suitable for climbing for other peaks of Ak-Sai gorge. They are Baychechekey Peak - 4515 meters and Box peak - 4240 meters (1B). And in Adygene valley: Adygene peak of 4404 meters (1B), Panfilov peak 4300 meters (1B), Electo Peak 4090 meters (1B)
