Описание: In the world, there are very few mountains comparable by their beauty with this snow-clad giant. Words are flat and helpless when you talk of the Khan Tengri s beauty. You must see it with your own eyes. The sunset at the Peak is stunning: surrounding mountains are drowning in the dusk while the Peak, dominating over all other mountains around, turns flaming red in the rays of the sitting sun and clouds cast twirling shadows streaming down its slopes. "Khan-Tengry" "The Master of the Sky" in Mongol language, from time immemorial is known to native local inhabitants, Kyrgyz, as "Kan-Too" "Blood Mountain" ("kan" means "blood", "too" - "mountain").
