MountainTracks is running a 4-week ski mountaineering adventure in China to climb Muztagh Ata.

Have you got the itch for a fresh adventure?

The great ski peak is 7,546m high and has a reasonable ascent.

- A climb on snow and ice, the elevation is never more than 40 degrees.

Muztagh Ata is in the Pamir Mountain Range close to the borders of China, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan.

Do you have:

  • A high level of fitness
  • Experience of arduous treks or expeditions at high altitudes
  • Experience of multi day glacier skiing carrying a heavy pack

Maybe this is the season for fresh adventure on this exciting expedition.

Price from £5,000.
