Border Lands

In the summer of 2013, Mike Libecki, Ethan Pringle, and Liv Sansoz traveled to the remote Tian Shan Mountains near the border of China and Kyrgyzstan. The team traveled though desert landscapes, a maze of sandstone towers, high plains and deep valleys to establish one of the must unique multi-pitch climbs in the region.

A travel writers’ site – with over 500 authors … here are a couple of posts about Kyrgyzstan:


From Kashgar to Irkeshtam, at the border with Kyrgyzstan

It’s been over 2 months since I last wrote about my on-going bike trip. I am now back in China for the October Holiday after visiting Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan in August and September. It was hard to get on line in the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan and then I was with my parents in Kyrgyzstan and wanted to take advantage of every minute with them so I didn’t spend much time on line (Sorry Becky!). Lots of things have happened since the end of July when I was in Kashgar. I am going to try to retrace my steps and share my impressions on 2 beautiful months across Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.  P5132968-1024x768-2

The way of the shepherd: Horse trekking through Kyrgyzstan

In Kyrgyzstan, it is said that its people are born on a horse – so it makes sense to find men and women galloping up and down the village streets on their daily errands in this little-known Central Asian country. It also makes sense that horseback is the most authentic way to see Kyrgyzstan’s dramatic landscapes, following the traditional trails of nomadic herders deep into remote mountainous regions. p01bl9wh


A Total Outsider’s View on Kyrgyzstan

I have never set foot in Kyrgyzstan. Actually, I am pretty sure that no-one I really know has, apart from the few people I interviewed with for the job I am about to start there (and then, I can’t say that I really know them yet). Not only should this indicate you, reader, how crazy I am (I would write “adventurous” but it just doesn’t seem right), it also underlines my utter lack of insider’s knowledge of the subject. skiing


Golden Nature of Altyn-Arashan

I think, I been in Altyn-Arashan more than twenty times. And I wish to go there again and again. I do not know, but, mountains, lakes in short nature always pulls 384861_10150375879684213_518284212_8477793_2108298456_nme to itself. I think that I cannot live without nature of my native country. Now I live in a good place, where the air is cleanest in the world.
