In Turkic languages "Muztagh Ata" means "Ice Mountain`s Father". The huge snow-covered mountain massif raised beetling over the Karakul Lake attracts mountaineers all over the world. The route to the top is not technically difficult with its slopes of 25°-30° steepness, yet it demands from climbers to be in high physical conditions. Muztagh Ata is nearly perfect for continuous and most enjoyable ski downhill from the top. First ascent to the Muztag Ata had been made in 1956 by joint China-Soviet mountaineering expedition.

Ascending routes:

- Section 1. Base Camp (4,450 m) to Camp 5,200 m. Uphill on a good path on the rib of the rocky ridge. Above 5,000m ridge may well be snow-covered. Having set up a small camp at 4,800m you carry on on skis on a deep snow through right-hand sided couloir.

- Section 2. Camp 5,200m to Camp 6,200 m. Uphill on a snow-covered slope to the small plateau at 5,400m. Turn left to the snow/ice crest and carry on along the left side of the crest up to the altitude of 5,600m. Here a zone of big crevasses begins. Cross the zone following a big snow gully in its middle part and then continue ascending on a steep snowy slope up to a wide snow ridge at the altitude close to 6,000m. Turn left and go on along the ridge to a small snow basin at 6,200m.

- Section 3. Camp 6,200m to Camp 6,800 m. Uphill on the right-hand side slope of the basin and then on a wide and not steep snow fields over several take-offs.
