The Marble Wall is the strong massif in the Tien Shan system. From its west side there hangs a kilometer-long wall of black and yellow marble, with a huge ice cap on top. The height of the mountain exceeds 6 000 meters. The camp at its bottom is established in a zone of the Alpine meadows. During this tour we will conquer several peaks.

For walking tours you won’t need any special equipment, but we recommend having tracking boots and hiking outfit.
