    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.

    What People are Saying about Ivan Moshnikov


    It was great to be with Ivan. Above all, I came through him in an area that I otherwise would not have been able to travel. He really took good care of everything and I learned a lot. DychTau is a mountain that demands a lot from the beginning to the end!

    Vladimir was our guide for summiting of Mount Kazbegi in July, 2019. He was a brilliant guide, as well as champion snow boarder, and I would highly recommend him for anyone planning climbing Kazbegi or Elbrus.

    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!

    Ivan is a master of his craft. His knowledge, instincts and skills are of the highest quality. He is the best guide I\'ve ever climbed with and when I return to Russia, I\'ll be climbing with him again. Also, his character is also of the highest quality, he is responsible, smart, and incredibly professional in every aspect. When you\'re doing something risky (like climbing a mountain), he\'s the exact person you need with you. I\'d climb with him anywhere, any weather any time of year.
