Khan Tengri Peak

Traveling around Kyrgyzstan with car rent service, guests of the country will have the opportunity to see another highest peak Khan Tengri. Khan Tengri is known for its pyramidal shape and its height is about 6995 m above sea level, taking into account the glacier about 7010 m above sea level. During the tour with Kyrgyzstan rent cars service, those traveling around Kyrgyzstan are told a lot of information, including about Khan Tengri, for example, that it is located in the Issyk Kul region and is the border with Kazakhstan.

In translation, the name of the mountain means "Prince of spirits" or "Ruler of the sky" therefore it is called so among the locals. During the tours with Kyrgyzstan rent cars service, tourists also learn about the fact that once a researcher mistakenly gave a description of the peak, mistaking it for peak Pobeda. While traveling around the territory, guests of the country can also find out that the original name of the mountain was Kan Tau (Blood Mountain). There are two explanations why such a name:  first is that because of the dead climbers, and the second explanation is because of the red sunsets.

In 1931, a team of climbers from Ukraine first climbed to the top, which you can learn about during the tour with a car rent service. It is worth mentioning here that at that time it was still forbidden to climb high into the mountains, because the mountains were not sufficiently explored. The Enilchek glacier and the Merzbacher lakes, as well as beautiful valleys and rivers, gorges with unforgettable views, all this can be enjoyed on the territory of Khan Tengri during the tours with Kyrgyzstan rent cars service.
