The area inhabited with Argali (sheep) Marco Polo (Ovis ammon polii) embraces the mountain south of the country from Naryn-river up to the China's border. Strong and very twisted horns of Argali always fascinated locals and visitors. The sizes of Marco Polo sheep - with the rare exception - are not so big as the same ones from Pamirs in the south of Tajikistan. Average sizes are 130 - 140 cm (51-55 in.), although there are sheep with the horn`s length 150-155 cm (59-61 in.).
Argali prefer wide plateaus and sloping mountains without steep rocky ledges. Mountains reach here the altitude of 3.500 - 4500 meters above sea level. The base camp is on the altitude of 3000 meters above the sea level (that`s why there is no need in adaptation). Place here is more convenient for walking than on the Ibex hunt, so it`s possible to use horses and jeeps. There are professional guides, doctor, cook and several helpers
