New Destination – Kyrgyzstan

We are VERY EXCITED about our newest destination – KYRGYZSTAN!

Kyrgyzstan is a rugged Central Asian country along the Silk Road.  Landlocked with mountainous terrain, it is an incredible natural beauty with deep-rooted nomadic traditions, making it one of the most exotic destinations in the world.

To cater to different adventure preferences,  we have launched a run, a trek and a peak climbing itinerary:

RUN THE SILK ROAD MARATHON

Run the Silk Run takes place annually in northern Tian Shan mountains, in eastern Kyrgyzstan, on the shores of Issyk-Kul Lake (1609m). The race route traverse through part of the Silk Route with historic architecture and magnificent alpine views along the run. Issyk-Kul Lake, a protected marshland and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, is an endorheic lake and the second largest saline lake after the Caspian Sea. Issyk-Kul means “warm lake” in the Kyrgyz language; although it is surrounded by snow-capped peaks, it never freezes.

TIEN SHAN ALA_KUL VOLCANIC LAKE TREK

The Tien Shan Mountains, Chinese for “Celestial Mountains”, is a Central Asian mountain range spreading across several countries like China, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, but mostly found in Kyrgyzstan. Our trek in the Tien Shan Mountains will bring you on the old caravan route of the Silk Road, the scenic Terskei Ala Too Mountain Range and the famous  moraine-glacial lake, Ala Kol (3532 m).

LENIN PEAK

Kyrgyzstan has three 7000m mountains. Lenin Peak (7134m), Pobeda Peak (7439m) and Khan-Tengri Peak(7010m). Lenin Peak is the starting point for climbers attempting the Snow Leopard Trophy. It is also considered one of the least technical 7000m mountains to climb and has by far the most ascents of any 7000m mountains in the world.

Come 25th Feb 15, the IWD Kilimanjaro all-women team will embark on their journey to climb to the roof of Africa. This is the first 5000m climb for all the 5 female participants. The ladies want to make a statement. Not a statement about climbing abilities but about creating an awareness to all women, especially Singapore women, to get out of the traditional view that women are fragile physically and psychologically.

The IWD Kilimanjaro Challenge is an Ace Adventure’s initiative to celebrate International Women’s Day. The objectives are to encourage women to challenge themselves through climbing mountains and to raise fund and awareness for other women.
