From London £359; Manchester £529; Newcastle £527.
Flying area: There are a number of places to fly, but we would probably only try two or three depending on the skill level of the group. The Russians and Kazakhs train on the first two sites:
1. Site “31 km” (it’s 31 km outside of Almaty) which is where the local club does most of their training.
2. UshKonyr which is where they held the 2017 Kazakh PG Open. You can see the flights and site information here: https://airtribune.com/2017-open-kazakhstan-championship/results
3. The third place would be to get permission to hike or horse trek back into the Kolsai national park, camp at Kosai Lake and fly there for a few days and then fly out. Here is a link to a village we could be based at to do this trip. Or just stay and fly the area around the village.
