The Asian Patagonia

This trekking takes place in the vast, mysterious and still little explored mountain system of Central Asia, that stretches for hundreds of kilometers (area 63 700 km2 ) from Takla Makan desert in the east till Kizilkum desert in the west and from Tien Shan mountains in the north till Hindukush in the south. The path takes us through picturesque valleys, simple passes, amazing canyons, fresh alpine meadows and foamy currents. The trek is also characterized by meetings with hospitable Kyrghyz shepherds. Drinking tea in their yurts, we get to know their original culture and nomadic traditions that have seen little changes over the centuries.

The Pamir Mountains in eastern Tajikistan are called the roof of the world and have many glaciers. Fedchenko Glacier, the greatest one of the world outside the Polar Regions, is 77 km long and 1,700 m to 3,100 m wide, with a surface area of 992 km2 and more ice than 500 m thick. The maximum thickness of the glacier is 1,000 metres. There are 45 glaciers in total included into the system of Fedchenko glacier. A famous hydro meteorological station (observatory) named after academician Gorbunov near one of the glaciers called Kashalajak. The Fedchenko Glacier, which extends north and south in the center of the figure, appears white on the southern side (upstream side) and dark-purple on the northern side (downstream side). Since the upstream glacier covered with snow and ice reflects sunlight quite strongly, it looks pure white, whereas the surface of the downstream glacier is covered with rock debris, so it looks dark-purple as it reflects sun light rather weakly.
