Peak Korolev. Western Kokshaal-Too.

Peaks in upper reaches of Chon-Turasu River Kokshaal-Too range.

“Mountaineering begins where the paths end, and does not end even at the top, because it’s not enough to go up, you also have to go down. On the descent of a climber, severe trials are often guarded.”

Nikolay Tikhonov.
