We have contacted Kyrgyzstan’s top mountain agency to arrange a one week trip from July 24 to 30 to the Ala Archa national park south of the capital of Bishkek. This climber’s paradise will feature alpine ascents ranging in difficulty from grade F to AD on peaks 4200 to 4850m high from a base camp / refugio at 3400m.The one week alpine climbing trip will have guide to client ratios of either 1:2 or 1:3. Accommodation, transportation, guiding services, entry fees and meals will be USD$750 per person. More information is available on the rocky mountain section website at but the trip is open to Calgary section members as well.
Central Asia is an unknown to many Canadians, but it is a very popular alpine destination for many Europeans and Russians. The economic downturn in Russia means fewer visitors than normal (unlike our national parks!!) and the current political stability in the area makes this an ideal time to visit!

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
The Calgary Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is a not for profit / flow through course and trip provider. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
