Since 2008, in Kyrgyzstan, we are developing the project of mountain guide education according UIAGM-IFMGA standards. Project is supported by Mammut , International Union of Associations of Mountain Guides (UIAGM-IFMGA), the Swiss Mountain Guides Association and the Association of British Mountain Guides.
Now there are 35 members from 8 countries: Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Latvia, Ukraine, Switzerland and Great Britain.
