Climbing Korzhenevskaya and “Communism Peak” in Tajikistan (40 days)

Climbing Korzhenevskaya and “Communism Peak” in Tajikistan (40 days) | Tajikistan

For 40 thrilling days, join IFMGA certified guide Anastasiya and climb 2 enormous mountains in Tajikistan: Korzhenevskaya and the Communism Peak.



40 Days

Jul, Aug



* Spend 40 days climbing the Korzhenevskaya and Communism peaks.

* Test your skills in the impressive Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan.

* Spend several nights in different, high altitude camps.


On this 40-day expedition, you will have the chance to conquer two incredible peaks in the Pamir Mountains, in Tajikistan: Korzhenevskaya (7,105m) and Communism Peak, now known as Ismoil Somoni (7,495m).

Along with Communism Peak and Korzhenevskaya, for the purpose of acclimatization, you will possibly also climb Chetjreh peak (6,200m), Vorobiev peak (5691m). Otherwise, we will carry out the acclimatization on Korzhenevskaya. This will depend on weather conditions and the group.

All of the peaks you will be climbing on this trip are located in the wild and majestic Pamir Mountains. This amazing mountain range covers a great deal of Central Asia. And while it may not be as well known as the Alps, the Andes, or the Himalayas, you can rest assured the climbing in the Pamir Mountains is nothing short of incredible. And on this amazing trip, you will get to climb the highest and third highest peaks in the range.

On the way, we will go to several different camps. Each one of these camps will allow you to enjoy amazing views of the Pamir Mountains and the landscape below. Furthermore, you will also get to enjoy scenic helicopter rides that will take you from Jirgital to the base camp and back.

The weather and snow conditions around Korzhenevskaya and Communism Peak are unpredictable. There are several acclimatization options that we can decide on once in the mountains. Furthermore, not everyone acclimatizes at the same pace, and snow conditions are difficult to predict. As a result, the itinerary detailed below is only a rough estimate. There is a distinct possibility that additional days could be necessary. Based on my experience, being flexible is the best way to succeed on the mountains.

It goes without saying that this is a challenging mountaineering program. Therefore, in order to participate, you should have prior mountaineering experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

Scaling 2 of the 3 highest mountains in the Pamir Mountains,  is a treat for any mountaineer. To enjoy this experience, just send me a request and we will start planning an unforgettable ascent to Korzhenevskaya and “Communism Peak” in Tajikistan!

If you prefer a shorter program, you can also enjoy a week of mountaineering in Ala Archa in Kyrgyzstan.

Mountain Guide

I'm an IFMGA-certified guide from Kyrgyzstan and started guiding professionally in 2003. In my 14 years of guiding, I worked as a high altitude and technical mountain guide, trekking and hiking guide, ski-touring guide and ice and rock climbing gide.

I finished Mountaineering Instructor School in Kyrgyzstan and I am a member of the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA).

Additionally, I am ”Snow Leopard”. This title is given to those who have climbed all the highest mountains in the former Soviet Union. These include: Lenin peak (7134 m) 2 ascents, Khan Tengri peak (7010 m) 2 ascents, Korzhenevskaya peak (7105 m) 1 ascent, Communism peak (7495 m)1 ascent, Pobeda peak (7439 m)1 ascent.

I have worked all over the Tian-Shan and Pamir ranges. I worked as a guide in Lyallak and Dugoba, in Alla Archa National Park and Suusamyr Valley, Terskey Ala Too and Kyngei-Ala Too.

As a mountain guide, my top 3 priorities are: 1 -safety, 2 –creating positive experiences for my clients and 3 -expedition success.

I am a mountaineer and really love the mountains so I also spend all my free time here. I have participated in expeditions in the Himalayas, Africa, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Patagonia and Russia.

I live and work in a beautiful mountainous country and I will be glad to show you the virgin beauty of the Kyrgyz mountains.

What people are saying about Anastasiya



We spent our time skiing in Jyrgalan as there was a lot more snow there than in Suusamyr Valley. Jyrgalan was fantastic - blue skies and deep powder! It was a truly remarkable few days. Our guide, Anastasiya, was excellent and she is highly recommended - friendly, good fun, highly knowledgeable (particularly in respect of managing avalanche risk) and extremely helpful.



Had a wonderful 11-day trip with Anastasiya in the beautiful Ala Archa! This was my first mountaineering experience so this trip included a lot of courses in mountaineering and climbing skills. Anastasiya was a fantastic guide and was very good at keeping everything safe, fun and sufficient challenging. Would highly recommend her. Couldn’t think of a better introduction to mountaineering.



We have just returned from a great 9 day trip with Anastasiya in Ala-Archa. We probably weren't her average clients - a family with 2 kids in tow. She did a great job of adjusting our days to match our capabilities while ensuring that we all kept learning. Anastasiya is an exceptional guide - skilled and knows this area well (it is her back yard). Should we find ourselves back in Kyrgystan we'd seek her out again.



Fantastic trip with Anastasya who is a great and friendly guide. She is very experienced, safe and always looked for the best places to ski. We had long days and could do several ascents in a day. We went to Jyrgalan, not to Suusamyr as the region was closed. Jyrgalan shows a lot of options. We highly recommend a stay in a yurt camp. We stayed in a nice guesthouse which served very good food. Great experience and for sure we will use Explore/Share service again.



It was great skitour program in Jirgalan valley. It was pretty deep powder and new experience skiing in such conditions. If you want to come to Jirgalan for ski touring, I recommend bringing wide skis. Our tour was well organized and we really enjoyed the food and hospitality. Anastasia is a friendly, experienced and patient guide.
