Hiking in Central Asia

Welcome to my journey!

I’m currently living in Almaty, Kazakhstan, trying to explore the mountains south of the city and also the surrounding area as much as possible. After Kazakhstan I plan to travel to the rest of Central Asia and later to Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan. My aim is┬áto do as much hiking as I can and publish it here with maps etc, to help you do it yourself. There is not much information on this area on the internet, and so that is want I want to achieve through this website.

So far my website on contains hiking around Almaty but every week there will be new content for you.

What you can expect to see within a 40 minute bus ride and a couple of hours walking from Almaty
