Expedition in Chinese Pamir –
ascent of Muztagh-Ata (7546m) – the world easiest "7-thousander".



CET "Neva" agency organizes expeditions to peaks of Chinese Pamir. In more restricted geographic meaning, this region is North-West termination of the giant mountain system - Kung Lun which stretches for 3000 km, from sources of Huang He river in the Central China to eastern boundaries of Tadjikistan Pamirs. The ridges here are directed rather meridionally contrary to the Tadjik Pamir with its latitudunal mountain chains. Among them, short but majestic Kashgar Range with the highest point Kongur (7719m) is the most impressive. Massif Muztagh towers at the South-West end of the range. Its main summit, Muztagh-Ata, reaches 7546 m. These two mountains are the tallest peaks of whole the Kung Lun system.

CET Neva has experience of two successful ascents of Muztagh-Ata by classic way from the West (2001st and 2003rd years), so we offer this route to our possible clients. The way on gentle snow slope will certainly enjoy lovers of ski ascents. It is very easy technically, therefore good weather conditions and adequate physical form of the climber himself are the only what is needed for the success.
However if a challenge of much more serious ascent of Kongur (7719 m) excites a group of more experienced climbers it will be our pleasure to organize an expedition for that ascent as well.
