Kazakhstan, only lately discovered as a mountain biking destination promises great adventure. The Tien Shan mountains, which form the border with China to the east, boast the most northerly peaks over 7000 meters on the planet. Peak Khan Tengri (7010m) and Peak Pobedy (7439m) present a spectacular backdrop during this remarkable mountain biking expedition. Leaving the former capital Almaty we cycle for 5 days across the Zailyisky and Kungey Alatau mountains to the Base Camp in the Karkara Valley. Here, we have scheduled 2 days of "heli-biking" flying ourselves and our bikes high above the camp for some "sheer bliss downhill mountain biking". The high-point of the trip is a 4 day ride across the Mingtur Pass (3900m) into Kirghizstan and down to the shores of Lake Issyk Kul. Challenging off-road mountain biking with a real sense of "adventure travel" through an area of incredible natural beauty and stunning high mountain scenery.
