Kyrgyz Khan Tengri
In the course of a tour pay your greatest attention to the information we have prepared for you as we are extremely glad to tell you more about the peak Khan Tengri. Gaining travel experience you will find out that previously the peak was said to be 6995 m above sea level and then some investigators started to claim that it is 7010m. Not all believe this figure.
The peak is known to be mistaken by the explorer P. Semyenov. His was making his tour and managed to find himself near the peak in 1857. His thought peak Khan Tengri and peak Pobeda had the same shape and height. That is why both peaks were named Khan Tengri during different periods of time. In the Soviet Union it was not allowed to rent a car and travel to the mountains of Kyrgyzstan and only some local citizens could claim the allowance.
The peak has a local name of Kan Tau (Blood Mountain). We suppose such a name take roots from a great amount of deaths on the peak or due to red sunsets which may be seen during the tour along the mountain.
In the course of travelling in Kyrgyzstan you will find out that in 1931 the peak was vaulted by the team from Ukraine. And it is one of the most successful tours in the history of the mountain. Mountains show us unpredictable and severe weather. It is snowing all the time any season of the year, winds start to blow harder in the winter.
During a tour in car rent Kyrgyzstan to the peak or to the bottom of the mountain for the reason of admiring the view, we are free to make a witness of the Terskey Ala Too range, Enilchek Glacier, Merzbacher lakes. Of course Tien Shan firs attract all the attention with the beauty. Being here during a tour in Kyrgyzstan you can surely feel fresh air and amazing atmosphere.
