In the course of a tour which you are going to travel we identify that the peak had undergone a great amount of investigations made by travellers who were in a tour.
The peak was mistaken with the peak Pobeda and this mistake was made by the investigator P. Semyenov. As he was all in travelling along Kyrgyzstan and Tien Shan Mountains he was given a title of Tianshansky. We are glad to give you details about tours in Kyrgyzstan and describe sites where you can travel being in our country. The local name of the peak is Kan Tau (Blood Mountain) and we have two versions of such a name. We suppose the mountain has such a name die to being dangerous for mountaineers. Until 1989 it was prohibited to travel in the mountains and visit various high altitude sites.
