Adventure tour on Saldyrtas glacier – KazakhstanExplore Kazakhstan
Leave the typical holiday behind and take part in a unique 5-day trekking in Kazakhstan between the glaciers of Dzungarian Alatau, the imposing mountain range of the region. Trekking here will take you to 3400m high to enjoy a magnificent view of the whole valley and to discover the alpine beauty of Kazakhstan closely. Mountain lakes, waterfalls and crevices will be the backdrop during your climb to the Saldyrtas Glacier. Staying at high altitude in the tent will make you feel incredibly close to the mountain.
Kazakhstan may not sound like an everyday choice for holiday, even in the context of trekking but it is about to change. Trekking in Kazakhstan is an awe-inspiring adventure where the night is spent in tents and the path is lit with stars. Immerse yourself in the endless mountainside with a small group of friends, and with experienced trek leaders.
First thing in the morning the team leaves the base and wander through Kora gorge. The aim of the day is to cross Kora and Saldyrtas River to the Saldyrtas glacier. Participants will set up the camp close to the glacier, under the stars. This will be the procedure each night. The next day is about climbing on Tyuite pass and descent into Tekeshbulak gorge.
Visit moraine lakes in the upper reaches of Tekeshbulak gorge. The second lake is located north, and from it Tyuyte (Tekeshibulak) river originates, along which we will descend back into Kora gorge. A final, wholehearted night with nature and friends, and off we go, back to the bustling cities.
