Very few high and well known mountains have kept through history their ancient names: Olympus, Fujiyama, Vesuvio, Demavend and Elbrus. Mt.Khan Tengri can join this great company. “Ruler of skies”, “Inaccessible for man”: these were the emotions the majestic pyramid gave rise to with ancient people. The peak stands in the eastern part of the Tengri Tag Range of the Tien Shan mountain system. This pyramid has a fantastic charming touch: the rosy-grey colour of its marble façade.The other, historical, touch is that only in 1989 foreign climbers got a chance to see and touch it “alive”.
