“I got a chance to climb the Kegeti Pass for the first time in July 2019, scouting the route along with two ladies from the United States - Lael and Rue. The same year later in August, I climbed Kegeti Pass during the second edition of the Silk Road Mountain Race. The Kegety Pass is located 110 km east of Bishkek in the mountain range of the Kyrgyz Ala-Too ridge, at an altitude of 3750 m.
This is a story about my third climb to the pass.
I'm going back to my Kegety.” - Malik Alymkulov, full time photographer, bikepacking enthusiast in Kyrgyzstan, Silk Road Mountain Race 2019 finisher.
