A 21-day ski expedition to the land of the Kazakh Eagle Hunters where w hope to ski amongst the 4000m peaks that separate Russia, China and Mongolia. We will base in Yurts and use a mix of Camels, Horses and 4×4 trucks to get to our destination.
This trip has room for 6 guests.
This is purely an exploration trip. You should be ready for a serious adventure in a different culture. The skiing we will do is human powered and the mountains are big, for these reasons and the fact that the days are long, we recommend this trip to experienced backcountry skiers with intermediate to advanced skiing/snowboarding abilities and good fitness levels. Backcountry safety skills are required.

We strongly recommend that all guests purchase trip cancellation insurance and most
importantly trip medical and evacuation insurance.
We also do recommend that all guests purchase medical insurance and evacuation insurance if you
do not already have a policy. The specific is evacuation and repatriation insurance coverage, most travel policies do not cover this, please check with your provider to see if you are covered. If you are injured while skiing in Norway and need to be evacuated to a higher level of care, the evacuation expense is to be covered by the injured party. Basic travel insurance does not cover this and we want to ensure that you are adequately protected in the event of an injury.
