Asia is not only the largest and most populous part of the world, but also the most mountainous. Mountains and plateaus occupy about 75% of its territory. All peaks of our planet above 7 thousand meters (including 14 eight-thousanders) are located here.
Lovers of hiking and climbing can find interesting places for themselves in almost every corner of Asia. In the west of this part of the world stand out mountain systems such as the Caucasus and the Urals, as well as the Pontic and Taurus Mountains in Turkey. Along the eastern coast of Asia from Kamchatka to the Malay Archipelago runs the Pacific Ring of Fire, so there is a significant portion of the Earth's active volcanoes, many of which are of interest to climbers.
And the most majestic mountain systems are located in Central Asia (especially in its southern part). Here are the Himalayas, Karakoram, Pamir, Tien Shan, Kunlun, Hindu Kush and others. There are many hiking routes, from the comfortable trekking in Nepal to the wild untraversed trails of Pakistan. And the climbs in the Himalayas and Karakoram attract the best climbers in the world.
We organize trips and climbs of any difficulty all over the world!
We work only with the best experts!
We take into account the opinion of our members and constantly make our programs better.
We don't put on the route those team leaders who haven't been there before. Only experienced guides with whom it will be safe and exciting.
Our managers will help you to choose the necessary equipment and clothing.
Trips to Asia are not cheap, that's why we take care of you to be as informed as possible about all possible expenses during the trip.
You don't need to worry if you buy a ticket and the trekking or climbing is cancelled through our fault. But the purchase of the ticket should be coordinated with us.
We work with many stores where our clients can buy equipment and clothing at a good discount.
Hiking in Central Asia means high altitudes, long crossings and not easy passes. Therefore, the difficulty here is higher than in the Carpathian Mountains, Turkey and Europe. To go to Central Asia, it is advisable to be in good physical shape and with experience of hiking under your belt. And as a reward for all the difficulties you endured, the local places will give you beautiful landscapes and memories for life.
The Tian Shan is a majestic mountain system that stretches for 2,500 km across five countries. Its maximum height is 7439 m (Victory Peak). The route of our hike along the Tien-Shan passes through its northern part in Kyrgyzstan. During 2 weeks of trekking, the participants will enjoy the severe nature of the local mountains. We will climb several passes higher than three and a half thousand meters, we will admire the glaciers, waterfalls and beautiful mountain lakes. At the finish, we are scheduled to rest on the famous Issyk-Kul Lake, which resembles a sea in its climatic characteristics. Another bonus is sightseeing in the beautiful and colorful capital of Kyrgyzstan – the city of Bishkek.
The Fann Mountains is part of the Pamir-Alai mountain system located in Tajikistan. It is popular with tourists because of its many picturesque mountain lakes. During the hike in the Fann Mountains we will see the most famous of them, climb several category passes, one of which is only a little short of five thousand meters (Chimtarga, 4,750 m). The route is not an easy one even by the standards of Central Asia, and therefore hiking experience is required to participate. The trek ends with excursions to the ancient cities of Uzbekistan – Samarkand and Bukhara, which are included in the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites because of their wealth of architectural monuments.
Lenin Peak is one of the most accessible and technically easy to climb. Of all the mountains in this altitude category, Lenin Peak is the most popular peak for climbers. It is located on the border of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. We will do the climbing along the classical northern route. Despite the low technical difficulty, we should not underestimate the altitude factor. Besides, it will be very windy and cold at the summit, and the prolonged periods of bad weather can spoil the plans even for the most experienced climbers. You must have previous climbing experience above 5,000 meters to participate.
You also have an opportunity to combine two 7-thousanders in one program, and climb Khan-Tengri at the same time. In that case, Lenin Peak is considered as acclimatization before the more difficult summit. Khan-Tengri is the northernmost 7,000 m peak, which is known for its regular pyramidal shape, harsh weather conditions and high technical difficulty. We will climb the safer route from the north.
Demavend (5,610 m) is a dormant volcano in the Elbrus Mountain System in Iran. It is considered the highest volcano in all of Eurasia, not counting the Kunlun volcanoes in China. Climbing Demavend is technically easy, so this peak is a great choice for those who want to climb 5,000 meters for the first time. It is also convenient to combine climbing this volcano with getting to know Iran – a mysterious and very beautiful country with a fascinating history and many places of interest. In our program you will visit Tehran and after the program you can continue your journey to Isfahan and Yazd.
The Himalayas and Karakoram are the 2 highest mountain systems in Asia and the entire planet. There are all 14 eight-thousanders, and a huge number of smaller mountains. Territorially the Himalayas and the Karakoram are located in 7 countries: China, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Myanmar. Today we guide trekking and climbing in Nepal and Pakistan. The main feature of trekking in Nepal is the presence along the routes of special shelters – lodges, where tourists eat and sleep. And things can be given to porters, who for a small fee will carry them the entire hike. This makes trekking in Nepal much more comfortable compared to the classic trekking in the mountains. Pakistan does not have such a developed mountain infrastructure, so you often have to cook food with gas and spend the night in tents.
On the individual pages of our website, you can read in detail about the features:
After completing trekking and climbing in Nepal, you can visit Chitwan National Park and observe the wildlife of tropical Asia.
The trek to Annapurna is of low difficulty and great for exploring Nepal. Members trek through six natural zones, from tropical jungle to the arctic wilderness of the Himalayan highlands. One of the highlights of this trip will be the views of the famous eight-thousand meters high Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, as well as the sacred peak Machapuchare. We will also bathe in hot springs, go boating on Lake Phewa in Pokhara and visit the many sights of Kathmandu.
The Mardi Himal trek, like the trek to Annapurna, is low in difficulty and is a great choice for beginners and those visiting Nepal for the first time. This route has been opened relatively recently, so there are significantly fewer tourists here than on the popular Annapurna and Everest treks. Its main feature is the gorgeous views of the sacred Machapuchare Mountain along most of the way. Besides it, there will be views of Annapurna, Hinchuli, Gangapurna, Mardi Himal and many more. Members will also be able to experience the culture and traditions of Nepal in Kathmandu and Pokhara.
Our trek around Annapurna is a refined version of the world-famous Annapurna Ring Trail, which tens of thousands of tourists pass through each year. We have included a visit to the fabulously beautiful Lake Tilicho, which is located at an altitude of 4,900 meters at the foot of the seven-thousander of the same name. The key part of the trek is the climb to the challenging Torong La Pass at 5,419 meters. The reward for overcoming difficulties will be unforgettable views of the Annapurna range peaks, as well as Manaslu, Dhaulagiri and others.
The classic trek to Everest is another super-popular route. It is taken by almost all mountaineers who intend to climb the world's highest peak from the Nepalese side. In this trip there are some unforgettable experiences waiting for the members: internal flight to Lukla among the Himalayan peaks, numerous suspension bridges, views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, grandiose Khumbu icefall, climbing to the five-thousanders Kala Pattar and, of course, the unique culture of Nepal. And at Everest base camp, you can meet and talk to famous climbers.
Unlike the classic trekking to Everest, the trek across the Gokyo Lakes lasts 3 days longer and is even more challenging, but it is more beautiful and diverse. The highlight of the route is a visit to the Gokyo Lakes, one of the most beautiful lakes in Nepal. We will also pass Cho La pass at 5367 m, which from afar looks harsh and inaccessible, and climb two peaks - Kala Patthar and Gokyo Ri.
Much of this trek to Everest takes place at altitudes over four thousand meters, so members need to be prepared for the cold and reduced oxygen levels in the air. An excellent acclimatization program will help with the latter.
If you want to experience real wild Nepal without the crowds of tourists on the trails, the trek around Manaslu is a great choice. Throughout the route, we will be accompanied by views of the eight-thousander Manaslu, which you are sure to remember for a long time. Also, on the program there are many suspension bridges, bustling mountain rivers, colorful Nepalese villages and stunning Himalayan scenery.
Mera Peak (6,461) is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. This means it can be climbed without any special skills or equipment. Mera Peak is considered one of the most accessible six-thousanders in Asia and around the world. If you are planning to climb 6,000 meters for the first time, this summit is perfect. It has little technical difficulty, and the main difficulty in climbing is the cold and strong winds. And of course you should not ignore the impressive altitude, our carefully developed program will help you acclimatize to it.
Island Peak (6,189 m) is another very popular trekking peak in the Himalayas. Compared to Mera Peak, it is slightly lower, but technically more interesting and beautiful. Along the way the members will have to go through snow and ice fields, use crampons and ice axes, and we will overcome the summit climb with the help of a jumper and a descent device. All of these skills will be taught at the beginning of the program in training sessions, but prior experience at 5,000 meters is required to participate in the climb.
Ama Dablam (6,814 m) is one of the most beautiful mountains not only in Nepal but in the world and a true calling card of the Himalayas. Its sharp and accurate shape makes the peak recognizable even to people who are far from the world of mountains. Ama Dablam is not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the most difficult peaks, accessible only to experienced climbers. While climbing it, you will need to overcome difficult rock sections, use a jumper and a descent device. For acclimatization, we will climb another six-thousand peak, Island Peak.
The Nanga Parbat trekking program will take us on three exciting treks in Pakistan: to Nanga Parbat base camp, to Rush Lake and to Rakaposhi base camp.

The program is specially designed so that travelers have the opportunity in a short time to see the most significant natural attractions of the north of Pakistan.
Most travelers associate Turkey with "lazy" beach vacations in luxury hotels. Few people know that a significant part of the country is occupied by picturesque mountains with many hiking trails. Many of them run along the coasts, which makes it possible to combine active hiking and swimming in the waters of the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas. See our Turkey hiking page for more information.
As the name implies, this hiking tour in Turkey is as easy and comfortable as possible. Members sleep in huts with hot showers, comfortable bedding, and Wi-Fi. Territorially, the route takes place on the southwest coast of the country near the popular resort of Fethiye. Members will walk the trail through several cozy bays, admire the local mountain peaks and visit the ruins of ancient cities.

Our program includes: climbing the highest peak of the entire coast – Tahtali, visiting the grand canyon Geyniuk, tongues of fire on Mount Chimaera, the fortress and cave of the village Gedelme, Pirate Bay, and much more. Of course, there will be fresh fruit and swimming in the Mediterranean Sea as well.
The Carian Trail was established on the Datça Peninsula near Marmaris only a few years ago. There are not many tourists, and you can enjoy the beauty of the landscape in a calm and tranquil environment. It is a harmonious combination of cozy beaches with azure waters and wilderness areas, where it seems that not so long ago a man stepped foot for the first time. We will swim in two seas, walk through olive groves and enjoy beautiful sunsets and sunrises.
This trip is designed for those who want to see the most significant natural attractions of the entire Mediterranean coast of the country in a short time. This is possible thanks to the use of cars, on which we will travel through Turkey for more than 1300 kilometers! The program is carefully planned: we will travel between locations during hot days, and in the mornings and evenings we will enjoy walking and relaxing by the sea.
This route is much the same as the hike along the Lycian Way in the huts described above. The only difference is that here we will sleep under the stars in tents and cook our own food. If you want to feel a real hiking romance, sit by the fire in the evening and are not afraid of going with a backpack on your shoulders – feel free to choose the hike along the western part of the Lycian trail. After the end of the hiking tour, you can continue on your own at the sea.
Another hike along the Lycian Way that takes you along its central part. There are especially many impressive ruins of ancient cities: Demre, Mira and Kekova are known far beyond the region. Ther will be other classic attributes of a hike around Turkey as well: picturesque bays, pointed rocks, swimming in the warm sea waters and overnight stays in campsites on beaches. In 11 days we will walk almost 100 km, enjoying the scenery from Antalya to Kaş.
We have designed this hiking trip especially for families. The youngest hikers from 6 years old can participate. The hiking route in Turkey with kids follows the easy part of the Lycian Trail along the Mediterranean Sea. Despite its simplicity you will not be bored: wild wooded coves, ancient cities, mysterious Chimaera lights and incredible sunrises – just a small part of what awaits the members in this family adventure.
The Kachkar hike is very different from all the programs described above in Turkey. It takes place in the high Pontic Mountains on the northern Black Sea coast of the country. High passes, crystal clear mountain lakes wait for the members of this hike, and the cherry on top is the climb to the mountain Kackar (3 937 m) which is almost four thousand meters. This trek is for experienced and self-confident travelers who are ready to face hardships and caprices of the weather.
Ararat does not need a separate introduction. In addition to its historical significance, the mountain is one of the easiest and most accessible five-thousanders. If you are only planning to discover the world of high mountains, Ararat is the perfect place to start. Besides the climb itself, our program will include the historical sites of the region as well as a tour of the largest soda lake in the world. And for the most courageous and experienced, we offer Ararat Winter Climbing.
Erciyas (3,917 m) is an extinct volcano and the highest peak of the popular Cappadocia region. Our program combines an interesting climbing and cultural program with informative excursions to the most famous landmarks. You should not miss the opportunity to take a flight in one of the hot-air balloons that Cappadocia is so famous for.
Socotra is one of the most unusual and beautiful islands of our planet. It is located in the Indian Ocean near the coast of Africa and belongs to the state of Yemen. The nature of Socotra is just fabulous: the snow-white dunes, impressive rocky peaks, wide beaches and cool canyons. And the famous dragon trees, growing here, leave no one indifferent. If you want something exotic, come with us to hike around Socotra!
Georgia is a small mountainous country on the western border of Asia, with a very beautiful nature, hospitable people and centuries-old cultural traditions. It is hard to find a better place for hiking, because here you can combine trekking to the highest peaks of the Main Caucasus Mountains, vacationing on the beaches of the Black Sea and sightseeing tours to numerous monuments.
Most of our routes pass through the region of Upper Svaneti, which is famous not only for its rugged mountain scenery, but also for its many stone towers and churches, thanks to which the region has been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Because of the significant altitude differences, hiking in Georgia cannot be called easy. But we have designed the routes in such a way as to make them as easy as possible, making them accessible to all comers. There are also difficult trails for experienced and strong riders.
Note: All the routes of our hikes in Georgia start and finish in Batumi, so it will be convenient for you to combine the active part of the vacation with a beach vacation.
Backpacking in Svaneti is a very simple route by the standards of the Caucasus, when members sleep and eat in guest houses, and do not carry heavy backpacks on their shoulders. We pass all uninteresting parts of the route by transport. Because of this, we will visit even more interesting places and get more vivid impressions. We will walk a lot too, overcoming up to 17 km a day.
Another easy hike in Svaneti, which can be done by the whole family with kids from 10 years old. In contrast to the previous trek, we will cook food by ourselves, and stay overnight in tents. With all its ease, the trek will give you the opportunity to feel the harsh atmosphere of Svaneti. Majestic glaciers and pointed rocky peaks, ancient towers and rushing mountain rivers, green alpine meadows and snow-white mountain ranges are waiting for us. There will obviously be traditional Georgian hospitality and delicious local cuisine as well.
A classic mountain hike that we recommend going in good physical shape and with previous experience. It's a real trek in Svaneti, where participants will overcome big drops in altitude, sleep in tents under the starry sky and wade through rushing streams. But all these difficulties will give you the opportunity to get to the best viewpoints and experience the spirit of harsh but so beautiful Svaneti.
This is our most difficult route in Svaneti, which is suitable for athletes and people who are preparing to climb in the high mountains. According to the results of the trekking, you can get the third category of sports tourism and get the certificate of the mountain unit. Participants will spend about a week in places devoid of the slightest trace of civilization, and climb several category passes.
The route of the hike through Mingrelia is not easy. Its participants go through the passes of difficulty category 1A with a large daily mileage and a significant climbing and dropping altitude. But the beauty of the route is obviously worth all the difficulties! Fantastic mountain lakes Tobavarchili and Ohodzhe, blooming alpine meadows and snowy peaks will be remembered for the rest of your life.
Kazbek (5,033 m) is the highest peak of Georgia and one of the most popular five-thousanders in Asia. During the climb to the summit, you will see the famous Tsminda Sameba Monastery, you will try to walk in crampons and rope teams and feel like a real mountaineer. Our climbing program on Kazbek is one of the safest and most comfortable. We have our own base camp on the mountain and the ratio of guides to participants is 1 to 3.
