Description

It’s my pleasure to propose you this expedition to the summit of Lenin Peak (7134m), a 21-day trip in which you’ll experience a unique adventure in Kyrgyzstan.

Lenin Peak is a mountain of the Pamir Mountain Range which lies just on the border between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, in the High Badajshán province.

This 7134-meter peak belongs to the larger Trans-Alay Mountain Range. In fact, it is the 2nd highest summit in Tajikistan and the 3rd in the former Soviet Union. However, and despite of its altitude, it is considered one of the easiest peaks to climb. That is why Lenin Peak is a famous destination for those who are in search of an over-7000-meter climbing challenge!

The perfect months to enjoy this expedition are July and August. During the summer, the climate conditions are generally stable. However, when you surpass the 5000 meters of height the atmosphere can become a bit dense and hot.

There are several routes to the Lenin Peak summit. I recommend the classic route. This trail starts in the north side of the mountain and is not as demanding as other options. It is a suitable route for those climbers with little experience and basic technical skills. Before getting to the summit I will make sure that you are really prepared. Therefore, we will take several days for acclimatization by ascending and descending from the campsites.

The way up to the summit is really amazing with stunning landscapes around. So, there are no excuses. You will enjoy this expedition to the fullest!

Regarding our base camp, it is located on a large meadow at 3600 meters above sea level. The way to this campsite will take us through the Edelweiss meadow and then, across a narrow and steep path which leads us to the Puteshestvennikov Pass (4200 m).

Once we cross that pass, we’ll find a glacial moraine that we must face so we reach the Lenin Glacier. And on the left side of the glacier is our permanent base camp. It’s also worth mentioning that this area provides toilet facilities, running water and electricity.

At the bottom of this description you can find a day-by-day itinerary of my program to the Lenin Peak.

I have some fixed departures in July and August, you can see the dates below. I can take a maximum of 4 people per guide, but we can provide additional guides if you are a larger group. The final price of this expedition will depend on the group size and additional services in camp 2 and camp 3 (tents, meals, etc).

Please feel free to send me a request if you wish to proceed with the reservation process. I will be happy to guide you through a region I love! Fill the form and let’s plan your next trip up to the top of Lenin Peak. 

I work together with a group of guides, so if I’m not available, one of my colleagues will guide you.

I'm an IFMGA-certified guide and have been guiding for the past 15 years.

I got the chance to do beautiful ascents like the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Mont Cook, McKinley, 7000m Peaks in ex-USSR, technical climbing In the Caucasus, new climbing routes in the USA, ski-touring in Alps, Russia etc.

This was my second trip together with Ivan Moshnikov. It's safe to say that everbody in our group absolutely loved it. We had a great time in Russia and it was an absolut blast. Even though we were not able to experience "true Mamay snorking powder" we still skied perfect snow for 7 days in a row. I threw my mobile in a corner in the first day and did not pick it up until 8 wonderfull days filled with skiing, amazing food, going to sauna and enyoing wonderfull company. However, if you a looking for a super lonely place, Mamay is probably not the right choice. The valley gets visited frequently by locals and other tourists. Still, there is enough place for everybody I think. 10/10 I will definitly come again. Many thanks to Yulia, Roma and Stepan!

No info from travel agent essential information about imigration cards, That mens no info that taht cards important ( No Info dont loose them). About transfer from airport was very good. Food excelent. No additional guide for ascenting Elbruss. I had different habit for ascenting. The Guide doesnt like. TIn the Summit ascenting he said that i should keep same style climbing as them. And put all responsibility on me if i wpould refuse contnues ascent to summit. So i this result bad sleep. And did not feel well to make summit ascent. I refuses to go. So that day i am ski touring myself due to arriving Caucasus. Rest was ok. Please return 250 euros . So incomplete mission

We went to Mt Elbrus ski touring in May and did not summit due to bad weather. If you want to be sure to summit I would suggest you book about 8 days as it takes at least 4 days to get altitude acclimatised to the point you can make an attempt ) and it seems the bad weather systems last about 3 days.... groups submitted the two days prior to us but no one summited for the next three due to 80 kmh winds. In regard to CetNeva, I had some trouble with communications and replies (partly caused at my end) but once that was sorted things went well. Lisa runs the admin side and is good. We did not have Ivan as a guide we had Roman - but Roman was over qualified for us but patient and pleasant despite our lack of skills and never being ready on time.

The guide was actually not Ivan Mishnikov but Denis who was a Junior guide with CetNeva. Overall the guide company is really good. Cook and the barrels where I stayed were excellent. Lisa, manager of CetNeva, were attentive and always present to help out. Guide was excellent in skills, just a little shy. Would recommend 100%. Thanks!
