PLANNED ACTIVITY

Following in the tracks of Chokan Valikhanov. The expedition to Kashgaria.
This project represents the replication of the expedition to Kashgaria, which was realized by Chokan Valikhanov in 1858-1859. During our expedition we plan to shoot a documentary film and as a result of the expedition some different scientific articles will be published. The project has the following objects: to narrate about the travelling, which was realized in XIX century and to show present-day life of the land we are going to have the route over. The expedition will be realized over the territory of Kazakhstan, Kyrghyzstan and Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region of China. The expedition is planned to be realized in 2008.

Cycling expedition over Mongolia.
Mongolia is a country where you can hardly find regular freight services. Bicycle (as some time ago horse) is almost the most convenient means of transport especially in the vast expanses of the land. And taking numerous comments in consideration people, populating this land, are considered to be ones the most hospitable people in the world.

Historico-geographical documentation center.
In Karaganda we plan to open specialized historico-geographical documentation center, which could unite both well-known editions such as books, magazines, maps and expeditionary accounts, travel notes and other works of the members of Society and other Kazakhstan travelers, geographers and historians as well. Their works can be known only in narrow groups or published by different means by own strength. It is supposed that free access will be gained to any who wishes just free of charge.

Nepal. Continuation of exploration.
Nepal is an immense country that is fraught with heaps of interesting things, which could attract a tourist. That is why we are going to continue the exploration of this mountainous kingdom. Now our route may lead to the base camp of Everest or it might lead to the western part of the country, which was visited very seldom, especially by tourists, because of the recent civil war. All these places are worth seeing and telling other people about them.


WE OFFER COLLABORATION FOR PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN OUR WORK AND WE ARE READY TO CONSIDER YOUR SUGGESTIONS CONCERNING YOUR PARTICIPATION IN OUR PROJECTS.
