It happened due to misidentifying of Semyenov Tianshansky when he first came in Kyrgyzstan in 1857. Actually, the real name of the mountain is Kan Tau (Blood Mountain). It has got this name due to its red color. Some people say that, it happened because of mountaineers who lost their lives by reaching peak.
