Day 2Summiting Peak Uchitel

Racek shelter - Uchitel Peak

  • After an energetic breakfast, we take our hiking poles and go off to a day of adventures. Our goal for the day is to reach the Uchitel Peak. The trail is difficult, steep and rocky. We walk accurately and slowly. Step by step, we gain in altitude and reach the snow. The 1200m that separate us from the summit require acclimatization, so we do not rush. Finally, at the summit, you’ll be breath-taken by a panoramic view on the Tian Shan mountains and their glaciers.
