Rock climbing in Madygen Geopark

Rock climbing in the geopark is becoming an increasingly popular outdoor activity. This is facilitated by stunning locations, and landscapes from a bird’s eye view, which climbers strive to reach.

On the territory of the geopark there are places where nature has created excellent conditions for rock climbing. The compact location of climbing locations makes this type of extreme tourism more and more popular. Almost all mountain ranges are cut by deep canyons. The height of the canyon walls reaches more than 350-400 m. The canyon walls are very attractive for both professionals and beginner climbers. These places are ideal for rock climbing, as the mountain ranges in the southern part of the geopark are composed of dense Paleozoic limestones. Limestones have good blockiness and fracture, which means they have a lot of hooks for hands and feet. The geopark has two great locations for beginner climbers, these are the Kozu-Baglan canyon and the Tenge-Sai canyon. Tenge-Sai Canyon is also ideal for canyoning. Link to canyoning………………….

The walls of the local canyons still remain undefeated. In 2022, we are inviting climbers to evaluate new rock routes for the first time in a new geopark in the southern Tien Shan of Kyrgyzstan.

The most favorable time for climbing is April – June, August – October. The air temperature in July – August reaches 35-40 degrees. For a comfortable stay, a good field camp will be provided. Your chef will take into account your dietary preferences. During the whole expedition you will have a car, a satellite phone, radio stations and all conditions for rest after rock climbing. Local limestone cliffs in the canyons are great for various types of rock climbing. For example, for free climbing or for climbing to difficulty with a lower rope. Especially these rocks attract beginners.
