Speleological expedition “Tuya-Muyun – 2021” (Foothills of the Alai ridge, Kyrgyzstan) – June 2021

The Tuya-Muyun karst massif is located in the northern foothills of the Alai ridge on South of Kyrgyzstan. Tectonically, this is the most stable part of the Tien-Shan. The district is located 50 km from the Osh city. The mountain range is composed of Devonian limestones. Several caves are known in the mountain range. These caves are the rarest formations with unique calcite crystals, the length of which reaches 30 cm. These caves were formed as a result of hydro-thermo-karst processes. The entrances to these caves are very small and Continue Reading

Speleo-biological expedition to Kyrgyzstan-Tajikistan -2021. Dates of Expedition – August 14 – August 28. Dates are not fixed.

In 2021, we plan to conduct an integrated transboundary speleo-biological expedition to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. In 2019, we made a reconnaissance of karst in Tajikistan. As a result, we understood the logistic features, distance and travel time. We also learned what kind of transport you need to use to get to an interesting area. We saw several unexplored karst areas where caves might be. Previously, no biological research was carried out in tajikistan in karst regions and caves. In 2018, a group of foreign scientists conducted a series of research Continue Reading

Speleo expedition to the karst region “Kuraves”, South of Kyrgyzstan. July 24 – August 06, 2021

The Kuraves karst region is located in the Kuraves valley. The mountain slopes are covered with dense walnut forests. Almost all the foothills and mid-mountains of the southwestern slopes of the Fergana Range are covered with dense forests. Limestone cliffs are exposed only in the upper part of the mountain range, which is rather difficult to reach. In 2019, we made a reconnaissance of the area. We used a nice off-road vehicle. As soon as we got to the end of the forest, a heavy downpour overtook us. As a Continue Reading

About projects

Our speleological projects are studies of previously unstudied or poorly studied karst areas. Studies of new caves and caves, mentioned by local residents. In the study of caves, we approach with comprehensive technique taking into account interests of archaeologists, biologists, geologists, hydrogeologists and other fields of speleology. All the projects are carried out approved by local authorities, and the results of the researches we make available to a wide range of people who are not indifferent to the fate of caves. Caves of Central Asia can bear various information related Continue Reading

Speleological Expedition to the Karst Areas of the Ferghana Range. South of Kyrgyzstan. July – September, 2021

We invite cavers on a speleological expedition to the Fergana ridge, in the period July-September, 2021. Interested speleologists can contact us at: info@speleo.kg Only a good and experienced team of cavers will be able to explore the caves in this hard-to-reach area. The southwestern slopes of the Fergana ridge still remain mysterious to speleologists. Limestone slopes, overgrown with forest and bushes, hide caves. A large number of springs operate at the foot of the slopes. These karst areas are difficult to access. In the Tien-Shan, these places are the wettest. Continue Reading

Speleo expedition to Kozu-Baglan (foothills of the Turkestan ridge). July 2021

The expedition is planned for July 2021. Kozu-Baghlan is a vast karst area that has never been explored by speleologists. The karst area is located isolated from civilization. This is one of the most remote karst areas. Therefore, we invite a team of speleologists who will be able to walk a lot on difficult terrain and look for new caves. The Kozu-Baghlan karst area and its canyons are composed of Carboniferous (C) and Devonian (D) limestones. Limestones are a monolithic massif with many tectonic faults and cracks. The length of Continue Reading

Essay on Hodja Mumin

Salt-mountain Khoja Mumin is located in southern Tajikistan, 25 kilometers in the southwest of Kulyab. Khoja Mumin has a shape resembling a giant dome towering 900 m above surrounding plain (absolute height 1332 m). It stays visible for tens of kilometers. Because of the white salt of which the mountain is composed, it seems that the mountain is freshly covered with snow. The length of the mountain in diameter reaches 8.5 km. Together with the neighboring ridge Khoja Sartis, they belong to the largest diapirs in the world. Similar salt Continue Reading
