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

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 scheduled for July 2021. Kozu-Baghlan is an unknown vast karst area. This karst area has never been explored by speleologists. The karst area is isolated from civilization and is located far from large population centers. This is one of the most remote karst regions in Kyrgyzstan. In 2020, we conducted a reconnaissance of the area and saw classic limestones with signs of karst processes: furrows, grottoes, niches, etc. Unfortunately, we were not able to explore the inner part of the canyon. The Kozu-Baghlan karst area is composed Continue Reading

Speleo expedition to the “Kumysh” karst plateau. Second half of June, 2021

The southwestern slopes of the Fergana Range have always been and remain mysterious for speleologists. These limestone slopes of the ridge, overgrown with forest and bushes, hide caves. There are many springs on the slopes. In the Tien-Shan, these places are the most humid. The largest amount of atmospheric precipitation falls here – about 900-1000 mm per year. Locals have long been telling about the caves they saw in different gorges. Our goal in 2021 is to explore some of the karst areas accessible by car and horses. One of Continue Reading

Speleological expedition to Baysun-Tau (Uzbekistan), August, 2021

Speleological expedition to Baysun-Tau  The expedition is planned for July-August Baysyn-Tau expedition – 2021 The deepest caves of Asia are concentrated here on Baysun-Tau mountain range. One of the grand Baysun-Tau ranges, Khoja-Gur-Gur-Ata ridge, rises above the surrounding landscape and  scarce alpine villages more than 3600 m. It stretches for  more than 100 km from the southwest to the northeast. Tectonic processes lifted  limestone stratum above 3500 m height above sea level, forming an extensive inclined plateau in the northwest, which ends in the southeast with a almost 500 m Continue Reading
