Going Alpine in Kyrgyzstan
Although the high point of the trip was the Pamirs what really impressed was the sheer amount of Alpine country in Kyrgyzstan - in almost every place in the country even the lowest valleys glaciated mountains were visible. The variety of mountain scenery was incredible as well, some days one could find oneself in the European Alps or the Rockies, maybe here in New Zealand or on the Tibetan plateau! There were peaks, valleys , lakes, rivers and streams of all descriptions and often on crossing a pass one went from one alpine world to another. This is not a comprehensive post to either my trip or the Alps of Kyrgyzstan , rather I have just picked out some moments/memories of interest to me on the trip. As the journey progressed so did the scratch's on my camera lens hence the increasingly poor images.
