Kyrgyzstan

Eli, Ellinor and Johanna wanted a climbing adventure and looked at a map of the world. They decided to climb big walls in Kyrgyzstan. Karavshin valley is known as ”Patagonia of Asia” and is in the south of the country. They got to experience the culture of Kyrgyzstan, control of passport in the middle of the mountains, steep paths with heavy backpacks, unexpected bivouac in small ledges and bad stomachs… Down in the valley the only company where cows and big impressive vertical walls straight up in the sky.

The three women also made a first ascent of the mountain Babashatas south face. The mountain is the highest by the village Arslanbob in the west part of Kyrgyzstan. This climb turned out to be an epic adventure. During the stay in Arslanbob they visited the local hospital and muslim school where they shared their experiences and inspired the kids.
