Montes de Kyrgyzstan////Kyrgyzstan's mountains

Acabamos de llegar a Osh, la segunda ciudad de Kyrgyzstan, despues de 9 dias de trekking (con guia por supuesto) por los maravillosos montes de este pais. Llegamos a subir un pase de 3,600 metros y luego anduvimos unos 100km por la zona, haciendo diferentes tresmiles....impresionante. Esta foto esta sacada despues de subir un glaciar. Eso si, ahora estamos echos polvo y tenemos una capa de mugre que rascar...Ni que decir queda que la s agujetas nos duraran semanas y las ampollas meses!
We have arrived in the city of Osh, Kyrgyzstan's second biggest city. It took us 9 days to get here trekking over mountain passes in excess of 3,500ms. This photo was taken straight after climbing a small glacier and just before a painful 1,500m descent. We survived the expedition and are now left with some amazing photos, dirt from head to toes and a number of large blisters (Eider). We are just going to enjoy a bit of R&R here for a couple of days before heading off to the city of Mayluu Suu, another Soviet nuclear hotspot.
