The jewel of this fascinating and varied tour is clear LakeTulpar, ringed by the glaciers that flank Lenin Peak (7134 M). In addition to meeting Kyrgyz people in their summer yurt camps;
The lower parts of the track can also be quite hot. Nevertheless, you need to go, as for any mountain hike with different layers of clothing, because during the hike there is a significant increase, and some of the camps are at relatively high altitudes. Despite the fact that summer conditions are usually dry, the mountains really create their own weather. Rain or even snow can occur at higher altitudes. Those who went camping with the help of the camp crew and porters should be sure that they carry all the necessary equipment to spend an amazing trip. The maximum height of this trip is reached at the crossing of the Sara Mogol pass (4270 m) and you can approach such heights in other hikes but they are unlike the Sary Mogul pass.
Usually trackers feel the height in the first few days of the trek, but it seems they are relatively rare that they cannot cross one high pass. Almost of travelers can get used to climate and height from day to day.
