Muztagh Ata Trekking  Tour Code:XIN003

Muztagh Ata, literally "ice-mountain-father";  is the second highest (7546 metres) of the mountains which form the northern edge of the Tibetan Plateau (not the second highest of the mountains of the Tibetan Plateau). It is sometimes regarded as being part of the Kunlun Shan, although physically it is more closely connected to the Pamirs. It is also reputedly one of the easiest 7,000 m peaks in the world to climb, due to its gentle western slope and the comparatively drier weather of Xinjiang. Our trip starts in Kashgar with some interesting visits to this ancient trading post. We will then transfer to the Karakol Lake to start our six day trek to Muztagh Ata Mountain. Passing through some Kirghiz villages and we will also camp for a few nights before reaching the Base Camp of Muztagh Ata. We will finish the trek at Subashi and return to Kashgar.
