Khan Tengri Peak
The highest mountain in Kazakhstan
"Khan Tengri" can be translated as “The lord of the sky”. And the mountain lives up to its name: it is 7000 m (23000 ft) high. The peak is located on the Kazakhstan - Kyrgyzstan - China border and belongs to the Tien Shan Mountain Range. A lot of brave men attempt to ascend Khan Tengri, despite the dangerous rocks and almost vertical slopes.
At the mountain's foot, there is a base camp, that organizes routes of several levels of difficulty, helps newly arrived climbers, as well as organizes the work of guides and lifeguards. At the top of the mountain there is a capsule with short messages from all people who have reached the summit of Khan Tengri.
