Kyrgyz Khan Tengri

When you start a tour in Kyrgyzstan as well as renting car you are advised to get a view of the peak Khan Tengri. Mainly the peak bears the meaning of the "Prince of Spirits" or "Ruler of the Sky". It is true to say that most of alpinists are coming to travel in Kyrgyzstan on car rent due to the peak to be one of the highest in Central Asia. The peak is known to be 6995m above sea level, but some of travellers say it is 7010m. But this figure is rather doubtful.

There have been made a lot of tours in Kyrgyzstan with an aim to make an investigation. One of the first researches was P. Semyenov Tianshansky. In the course of his tour in Kyrgyzstan in 1857 he thought that the peak was the just like the Peak Pobeda. He made a mistake in investigation and identification of peaks.  

The peak bears also the name Kan Tau (Blood Mountain) - the locals name it this way. The name the mountain gets probably due to the great number of people who didn't return from the tour or due to the red sunset. Anyway the first successful tour was made by the team from Ukraine in 1931.  

It is well known that during the times of the Soviet Union the peak and mountains were not allowed to be vaulted. These restrictions could be taken aside with the special permission but only for local citizens. When you travel in Kyrgyzstan on car for rent you should pay your attention to the beauty of the mountains of our nature. In the course of a tour you will make a way though the Enilchek Glacier and Merzbacher lakes.
