The Shamsi Tuyuk area lies approximately five main valleys, and 50km east, of the well-developed Ala Archa Range. Before the visit of a British expedition in July-August there were no recorded climbs. In the course of 14 days the team ascended six prominent peaks up to 4,383m, via nine routes at grades of AD and below. Download the PDF from this page (below) to read the expedition report.
