MCS AlexClimb mountain horse riding tour programs

If you will ask me - what is the connection between mountains, climbing and horses - I tell you a very simple thing. Most mountain routes, from easiest to very difficult, cannot be accomplished without the help of these irreplaceable participants in the mountain expeditions.

Without these graceful four-legged helpers, none of our programs in Altai or in any other mountains would be safe or even successful

Since the most ancient times, man has had two faithful friends and helpers, without whom it would have been impossible for our entire human world to originate or survive.

Two creatures that have walked the same path with man since the very beginning of human history are the horse and the dog. No other living creature in this world is connected with us by such long and unbreakable bonds of friendship and love. Without a horse it would be impossible to imagine any achievement of the past, not a single victory, not a single battle.

And without a dog, a person would be defenseless in the face of his many enemies - both from the human world and from the world of wild nature. The validity of my words is confirmed by the fact of numerous references to horses and dogs can be found in the sacred scriptures - in the Koran, the Bible and the Torah. As well as the frequent use of images of these animals on the ancient coins, along with images of gods, Caesars and emperors.

Stories about the selfless devotion of these animals to humans, about self-sacrifice, about the purest and deepest love, have always inspired artists to be creative and provided subjects for creating the most piercing works of art.

...The world has changed, we began to forget about our old and faithful friends. The rhythm of our life and modern technologies dictate and impose on us completely different tasks, values and speeds.

Behind which the pleasure of life is getting lost, accumulate dissatisfaction and fatigue.

The inability to enjoy simple things is the most serious, although not obvious, problem of modern man.

In the turmoil of our world, very few people can remember how joyfully a horse meets its long-awaited human friend.

Or how crystal splashes scatter at a watering by a mountain river from the contented snort of a thirst-quenching horse.

Or how endless feather grass fields float past the saddle, along which the wind drives the waves, as if across the sea.

For those who appreciate peaceful silence in this frantic pace of life, these moments are priceless. No engine noise, no jostling, no struggle for every tiny piece of space. Only endless mountain expanses, eternal snow on the horizon broken by steep ranges and the slight creaking of the saddle in time with the horse’s measured step.

When it gets dark, a light piece of fire will dance in the darkness, and from above there will be only an endlessly starry sky, not illuminated by the city lights, full of mysterious star life.

The upper reaches of the Tyzyl River in the Elbrus region is one of the few places in Caucasus that can still only be reached on horseback.

Nature here has retained its wildness and inaccessibility, pristine beauty and harsh splendor. Time has stopped its course at the foot of Elbrus, where, gradually rising to the eternal snows, endless gentle grassy hills alternate one after another.

Blooming in the spring, and in the fall - as if plush, burnt out under the summer heat.

But these magics places keep not only the purity of nature. Some even more fragile and almost lost substance has been preserved here - the simplicity of human relationships, naive sincerity, which is the first to disappear with boorish, selfish and commercial treatment.

Over the 20 centuries of development of human civilization, there has never been a replacement for man’s faithful four-legged companion - the horse

The simplest hospitality, a glass of fresh milk offered by the weary hand of a shepherd. Leisurely conversation under the light of a dim lantern in a remote shed - all that directly touches and makes to resound the deep strings of the human soul.

Caucasus. Horses, mountains and dawn

Literally in that there is the greatest value of such travels, far from extreme records and sports competitions, from the acute feeling of being “on the edge”.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
