For 90 days in the summer of 2022, Jérémy Bigé embarks on a major journey through the mountains of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. In the footsteps of Soviet emissaries, explorers of yesteryear and nomads who inhabit the high meadows, it makes its way through the Celestial Mountains and the Pamir Alaï along a unique, technical and high route. From pass to pass, from yurt to yurt, he reached Dushanbe after 2,000 km of walking and 90,000 m of elevation with his only luggage of 5 kg. This walk is the winner of the Guild's adventure grants and Expé 2022 grants.
