Hi everyone! Thanks for visiting the
website we built for our climb of Khan Tengri in 2004. Our
current projects are
www.womow.com.au and www.myeverest.com
The purpose of this site is to give you some background into
Khan Tengri and to give you regular updates on our climb. We intend
to update the trip report section of the website each day with some pictures and a journal entry using a
satellite phone and an Ipaq. This is the first time we have tried this
communication system, so it will be a learning curve & we apologize in advance
if there are any technical difficulties!

Where is Khan Tengri?
Khan Tengri is the most northern 7000m
peak in the world. Itís located in Kyrgyzstan very close to the
borders of Kazakhstan and China. We are flying into Alamaty in
Kazakhstan then taking a 7 hour car trip to Karkara and then a
40 minute helicopter flight into the Khan Tengri base.
How high is it?
Khan Tengri is 7010 m high at it highest
point which is an icy cornice. Some maps show the Khan Tengri as
being 6995m high because the former USSR used to record the
official height of a mountain at the height of the last rock.
