Having regard to the debates on this forum about the delineation between Europe and Asia, I was not sure where to post this question, but I am sure you will forgive me if I have erred. :)

Has anybody climbed Mount Bazarduzu, and can anybody tell me a bit more about it?

Gathering a group for ascent to Muztagh-ata (7546m) Gathering a group for ascent to Muztagh-ata (7546m)

Good day to everyone!
We are gathering a group for non-technical ascent to MUZTAGH-ATA (7546m, WESTERN CHINA, Xinjiang province) and scenic tour around KYRGYZSTAN.

Muztagh-ata is known as one of the highest "easy climbs" from the technical point of view but due to its elevation by no means should be treated this way.
The tour was costructed with the help of local agencies, we´ll be accompanied by local guide on the mountain. All the base ...

Going to Yellow Mountain

Our family will be traveling this summer to Shanghai, China; and Melbourne and Sydney, Australia. We plan to visit Yellow Mountain; a railway trip away from Shanghai. I understand Yellow Mountain gets 15 million visitors a year compared to Yosemite at 3.5 million visitors. So we shouldn't be too lonely there! Haha! But my question to you all: do you recommend any class 2 hikes/climbs within 100 miles of the above three cities? Thanks in ...

El Nino

I'd like to climb in the Himalayas in October this year. At times I see on the news a potential of strong El Nino mentioned for this year.

Is anyone else on SP living in China?

I'm living in North-west China for the next year and a half, so I'm close to loads of peaks - maybe a day to get into 5000m-6000m mountains. I have all of my gear here, but don't know any locals or expats who are into mountaineering. Comes with living in a low-tier city, I suppose. I can speak Chinese conversationally, certainly well enough to sort out logistics and get things done on-site. I guess I ...

Tajikistan 7000m Peak Info

We are considering going to Tajikistan after Pik Lenin to attempt the two 7000m peaks there this summer. I have a few questions:

1.) Does anyone know of a basic services only, less expensive helicopter service to base camp? The cheapest, most basic package I can find is with AK-SAI travel, which is about $1900.
2.) I read a lot about how nasty the base camp food was last year; that several people got sick ...

Manaslu fall 2014

Is anyone interested or trying to put a team together to head to Manaslu this fall. I can't really afford to go guided but have a decent option for a company that provides logistics for everything except going high on the mountain which is more of what I am looking for. The problem is that I don't know anyone interested in taking this big of a trip so I figured I would try reaching out ...
