Hunt is at beautiful vinicity of high mountain lake Issyk-Kul. The lake is situated at the high of 1600m a.g.l. and in 400km from Bishkek. From south of the lake there is a mountain ridge of Terskej-Alatau where arkhar and ibex lives. From the last years the number of animals has had grownup. So, now it`s possible to meet herds from several trns and even hundreds of animals. And if arkhars occupy sites if high mountain plateaus at hight about 4000m a.g.l. but ibex live at rocks surraunding them.

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.

Ibexes feed in the morning and approximately till 9 a.m. they are in movement. That's why it's easier to see them.
