An English translation of this comprehensive work by Vladimir Komissarov is now available.

A very big Thank You to all involved!!


"The guide book describes well-known mountaineering regions of Kyrgyzstan as well as rarely visited and prospective ones. There is information on characteristic features of the regions, location, seasons, climate, climbing history, base camps, access, climbing opportunities, search and rescue works, provision, communication and logistics. Book provides with the information on organization and supply of mountaineering expeditions as well as recommendations on logistics and formalities. Almost each region described in the book is provided with the orographic scheme. A lot of pictures are enclosed. Guide book contains a lot of useful contacts. Every one who plans a visit to the mountains of Kyrgyzstan or has any interest in the mountains of Central Asia will find this book very useful."

Thats a great resource. Looks amazing. I particularly liked the paragraph on Preparation and choosing a climbing partner on p 114.

a great thanks to erph. I was not able to post it at the moment he suggest to me. And moreover doesn't want to bypass his excellent idea to post at UKClimbing.

Nevertheless, I take this occasion while I have seen some post about Veteran Festival on Peak Lenin (from ITMC Kyrgyzstan), which is currently running at the Achik Tash base camp where Vladimir Komissarov was still there (I hope so !), so here I have completed on both site these uploads of three releases of this alpine guide :
