Borkoldoy Mountains in Kyrgyzstan

MountainZone.com reports that the Harvard Mountaineering Club is celebrating its 80th Anniversary by undertaking an expedition to the Borkoldoy Mountains in Kyrgyzstan.

For political reasons, the Borkoldoy range was only opened to foreign mountaineering in the last decade. Only five expeditions have reported visiting the range since, and numerous peaks from 14,000 to 18,000 feet remain unclimbed and unnamed. The area is an extremely remote and practically unexplored haven for alpine style climbers, located on the border between Kyrgyzstan and China and part of the greater Tien Shan Mountain Range.
