The Altai Tavan Bogd (5 Kings) mountains are the highest peaks in the Mongol Altai Range, which stretches some 2,000km from the Gobi desert to the Greater Himalaya in Pakistan. Although the mountain ranges only occupy a 5% of whole the Mongolian territory we can call it a mountainous country with an average altitude of 1.580m. In far Western Mongolia lie the Altai Mountains, the habitat of lynx, Argali sheep, and the Elusive Snow leopard. In the remotest corner are the highest peaks, the Tavan Bogd range and Mongolia’s longest glacier: the Potanii Glacier which stretches 19km. Altai Tavan Bogd mountain consists of 5 peaks , such as “Khuiten” (4374m), Nairamdal (4082m), Malchin (4037m), Olgii (4050m) and Burged (4068m).

Mongolia, ASIA & PACIFIC

We will try to climb the highest peak of Mongolia, “Khuiten” (4374m ), Malchin peak and peak Nairamdal, which marks the intersection between Russian, Chinese and Mongolian borders. Malchin’s ridgeline overlaps with the borderline of Mongolia and Russia and provides a spectacular bird’s eye view of Potanin glacier, glaciated peaks and Russia. Over to the north, if the weather allows it, you will see the Mt.Belukha massif (4500m) in Russia. The steep and challenging Khuiten, involves glacier travel and maximum 50º ice/snow angle alpine climbing.

  • Before we invented civilization our ancestors lived mainly in the open out under the sky. Before we devised artificial lights and atmospheric pollution and modern forms of nocturnal entertainment we watched the stars. There were practical calendar reasons of course but there was more to it than that. Even today the most jaded city dweller can be unexpectedly moved upon encountering a clear night sky studded with thousands of twinkling stars. When it happens to me after all these years it still takes my breath away. #carlsagan
