Tour to Engilchek Base Camp via Merzbacher Lake 6 days

Season: June - September
Difficulty: Hard (long distances)
Following breakfast, our journey commences as we venture eastward from Karakol towards the Engilchek valley via the Chon-Ashuu pass (3830 m.). En route, we traverse a segment of the formidable Terskey-Ala-Too mountain range, boasting peaks soaring up to 5216 m., enveloping the Issyk-Kul basin from the southern flank. The ascent and descent from the pass typically span 5-6 hours by car, yet time eludes notice amidst the captivating panorama: dense fir forests, expansive plateaus, rugged gorges, and glaciers crowning the peaks. Progressing further, we enter the Engilchek Valley, tracing the course of the Engilchek River, passing by the remnants of the deserted Soviet mining town of Engilchek. Subsequent to navigating the second border zone control post, we proceed towards the At-Jailoo River, where we establish camp for the night, pitching our tents. Dinner will be served amidst this picturesque setting, followed by a night under the stars.
