At-Dzhailoo - Khan-Tengri.

Acclimatization hiking from camp Am-Dzhailoo to base camp "Southern Inylchek" with an summit ascent on peak Khan-Tengri.

 For many years already the alpinists have trekked up to the Base Camp South Inylchek along the glacier in order to get a better acclimatization before climbing Khan-Tengri and Pobeda peaks. The trek up along the glacier not only helps you to get better acclimatization, but also gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views of Tien-Shan.
The trekking starts in At Jailoo gorge – an amazingly beautiful place on Inylchek river bank, one of your Camps overlooks stunning Nansen peak, and at the confluence of South and North Inylchek you can walk to see the famous Merzbacher Lake.
But there were some people who wouldn’t accept this way of acclimatization because of the necessity to carry much - tents, food and personal belongings, etc. 2015 “Silk Road Adventures” will set up permanent tent Camps all along the route to make the trek possible and easy for you (see map).
