MUZAGH ATA CLIMBING-SKI EXPEDITION

Muztagh Ata means “Father of Ice Mountains” in local language Kazakh and Uigur, both are Turkish dialects. The massif of Muztagh Ata lies in the Kunlun Shan range on the high plateau in Western China, where nomadic herders line and tend their roving flocks. It is a huge mountain-massive, which consists of two summits, one of them is 7546M high and other is 7130M. The distance between them is 2 km.
 
The normal route of Muztagh Ata from West, not difficult technically and good for not competent mountaineers, because of high altitude above the sea level all along the route participants should be well prepared. The climb is very straight forward technically and suitable for the skiers who want to combine skiing with trip high altitude in the Himalayas. It is considered to be the easiest peak in the world in 7500M peaks. Alternative Muztagh Ata is superb place to discover the world of high altitude climbing. With summit reaching 7546M, this expedition is excellent preparation for an 8000M-peak climb.
