An Expedition to Kyrgyzstan

Hannah Meinertzhagen

 

 In August 2017, after 2 years of planning, a team of seven mountaineers set off on an expedition to the remote Borkoldoy mountain range in south-east Kyrgyzstan. Our adventure was led by Neil Cox and the team included: Tom Harding, Hannah Meinertzhagen, Scott Martin, Matthew Lewis, Stuart Gillan and David Lyons-Ewing. Our main objective was to achieve summits of two unclimbed 5,000m+ peaks. Alongside this we were also interested in identifying cave entrances, assessing rivers for kayaking potential, documenting wildlife and photographing glaciers. In this lecture, I will share the story of the challenges and successes of our eventful journey to this spectacular mountain range.
