Peak Khan Tengri of Kyrgyzstan

While in Kyrgyzstan, you will be informed about the Khan Tengri peak, which has an altitude of 6995 meters above sea level. But you can also find out that the peak has an altitude of 7010 meters above sea level due to the ice cap. Guests of the country on tours in Kyrgyzstan will be able to travel around Kyrgyzstan and explore that the peak has a location in the Issyk Kul region on the border with Kazakhstan.

It will be possible to find out that most often the peak is called as "The Prince of Spirits" or "The Lord of the Sky" by the local population. The peak was called differently at different times, because a well-known researcher mistakenly confused it with the Victory peak. At first, the peak was named as KanTau (Blood Mountain). All because of the red sunset, or because of the blood of the dead who wanted to ascend to the top.

You can also find out that you can rent a car on tours of Kyrgyzstan, and explore that in 1931, a group from Ukraine was the first to conquer the peak. You will be able to explore that in the Soviet Union it was forbidden to visit the territory of the mountains. And perhaps it was that the mountain's territory wasn't explored well enough. Guests of the country on tours in Kyrgyzstan will be happy to explore the peak, rent a car, and explore the Enilchek glacier, Lake Merzbachera and marvel at the beautiful views of nature, valleys, rivers and lakes.
