Highlights

 
     

    Located in the Pamir Mountains, Lenin Peak is a border mountain between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. It is considered to be one of the easiest  7000-meter mountain peaks in the world to climb, receiving  hundreds of climbers that make their way to the summit every year.

    This popular climbing destination, known for its easy access from the Kyrgyz side, has a highway going almost to the foot of the peak.

    By reaching the summit of Lenin Peak you will be one step closer in being part of the elite group of Russian climbers known as Snow Leopards!  Together with Peak Communism (7495 m) and Korzhenevsky (7105 m), located in the Pamirs range and Peak Pobeda (7,439m) and Khan Tengri (7010m) in the Tian Shan range, at 7134 meters Lenin Peak is the third highest peak in the former Soviet Union.

    Adventure and history all together in one!

    Our meeting point will be in Bishkek, the country’s capital and on the next morning we will fly to Osh city. The Osh- Achik-Tash Base Camp is situated in the alpine meadows between two steep river valleys. While contemplating the wild carpet of alpine flowers that surrounds us, we will start preparing for the climb.

    On the third day, we’ll do an acclimatization ascent to Petrovskogo Peak (4830 m) that will help me assess your climbing level. We will descend to base camp on the next morning and climb to camp N1 (4200 m) two days after.

    During the ascent to Lenin Peak, I´ll make sure we have a few days to recover our energy so that we make it to the summit in the best possible shape. You can check the day-by-day itinerary below this text.

    Come with me on this unforgettable trip where we will spend 21 amazing days. It will be my honor to share this experience with you!
