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
http://www.accrockymtn.ca/camps 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 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.
