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

Communism Peak and Korzhenevskaya in the Pamir Mountains

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.

About the 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 Cheremnyh

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.

Anastasiya was fantastic. The course was a perfect mix of skill development and climbing and I came away feeling like I learnt a lot as well as having had one of the most enjoyable trips I could have imagined. This was largely down to Anastasiya’s extensive knowledge and experience and her ability to perfectly tailor the trip to the precise level required. If considering a trip to Kyrgyzstan, I could not recommend Anastasiya highly enough.



March, 2022

Thank you for showing us your wonderful country, guiding us safely through the mountains and teaching us so much about ski touring. Our eyes have been opened to future possibilities and we hope you can guide us again another time.

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.

This was certainly one of the most memorable trips that I have done! Anastasia was very responsive in responding to my questions. Though as she could not make it, she had to refer me to another mountain guide named Muhammet Giden, who was instrumental in keeping me alive and ensuring me to have the best experience during the trip. Muha was very patient, careful, professional, and also thoughtful. Muha's English is exceptional too which made communication easier too. He patiently guided me to go up and down the mountain and taught me ice climbing and rock climbing on a methodical basis. Thank you Muha for being an amazing mountain guide and a climbing teacher! Will surely take the learning forward! ;)

Anastasia is a very experienced mountain guide! She adjusted the itinerary based at on my personal goals and the weather conditions. Thanks to her very broad knowledge I learnt so much from her. If you are looking for a guide with a strong background and a lovely person with whom you can also sit down after a long day and have a tea Anastasia is the right choice. I definitely recommended her.

Anastasia was a great guide/instructor and has invaluable knowledge of this area. Enjoyed every moment and learned a lot.

This was my first trip to Kyrgyzstan and first adventure with Explore Share. It was all very smooth process. I am especially grateful to my guide - Anastasiya. She made the whole experience amazing. She is very experienced both as a mountaineer and as a guide. She was very careful making sure I get acclimatised, allowing appropriate time for it. She helped me to further develop the skills o already had as well as teaching me new ones. She improved my confidence allowing me to achieve far beyond what o expected. I hope to come back for more soon!

Superb trip. Pavel was unavailable for this trip so his wife Anastasia, also part of KMGA, was my guide. She was as friendly as she was professional, taking safety very seriously with avalanche training and digging of snow pits forming part of the trip. I would highly recommend her as a guide. The trip itself was excellent - we were very lucky with the weather and snow conditions. The hut is very interesting, though if you are one for creature comforts this is not the place for you. My only other warning to future participants is that you need a good level of physical fitness to take part in this trip. The hike up is long and sustained, a mixture of hiking and skinning depending on snow conditions. The touring itself was as you would expect - we covered around 1,000m vertical per day but this can vary depending on energy and conditions etc. All in all a brilliant trip. 5* well deserved. Ed

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.



July, 2019

This rating is actually for Aleksey Pototskiy, who stepped in to be our guide when Anastasiya unfortunately had to cancel at short notice. Aleksey was fantastic. He made us feel incredibly safe, even though we’d never ice climbed before, and was extremely patient and knowledgeable. He’s a very experienced climber and mountaineer, and I’d highly recommend him as a guide to climbers of all abilities.

I would highly recommend Anastasia! I had an amazing trip to Ala Archa with Anastasia during spring 2019. She is an excellent guide, very professional, have a lot of knowledge and you can really feel her passion for being in the mountains. Furthermore she is easy to be around and you can sense the hospitality. My next trip in Kyrgyzstan will definitely be with her again
