Kyrgyzstan August/September 2019

Postby PlethoraOfGuns » May 30, 2019 6:57 pm

Traveling to Kyrgyzstan on an expedition to locate new cave systems. Dates are looking like August 20-September 2. We're taking a 6x6 truck from Bishkek to the Kokshaal-Too region of the Tian Shan, part of the western Himalayas. After crossing many mountains and fording a few rivers, we're setting up a basecamp in a high altitude meadow. From there, we are using truck, boats, and feet (and hopefully drones) to survey the area for these undiscovered cave systems. This area is the border exclusion zone, closed to the public. We have special permits to gain access there. Part of the expedition includes geologists, caves, riggers, hikers, biologists, and professional photographer. One big thing we don't have is a drone operator. So anyone who uses drones would be great to have!

Looking for a few more people to join us on this epic trip. The country is safe to travel to. No visas required for most people. Easy in, easy out. Beautiful, good people, and great food. Below is a link with photos and more information. We'll be continuing research left off from a successful expedition there a few years ago. Feel free to send me a message for more information if interested.
