Dare come on this incredible 29-day expedition to the Victory Peak summit (7,439m) in Kyrgyzstan, organised by IFMGA-certified mountain guide Ivan.


Tian Shan

29 Days

Jul, Aug

Very high



Experience this amazing ascent in the Tian-Shan Mountain Range: an incredible expedition to reach the top of Victory Peak in almost 29 days!

Victory Peak is the highest summit in the Tian-Shian mountain range. At 7,439 meters, it towers over the rest of the peaks on the Kyrgyzstan–China border. During World War II, this area witnessed several battles. Soviet rulers hoped for a victory and thus named it Victory Peak or Pobeda in Russian.

The Victory peak is definitely one of the most impressive mountains in the world. And the views you will get from the summit are only rivalled by the thrilling experience of reaching it!

This 29-day program includes ample time for acclimatization. Also, you will get to ride a helicopter to go to and from the Victory Peak’s base camp.

This is a non-guided trip. However, everything you will need to successfully summit this incredible peak will be provided for you. Please note that the Victory Peak ascent is also reserved for experienced mountaineers only. Also, it is mandatory that participants be in excellent physical condition. Only a few people make it to the summit every year, so you need to be prepared for a very challenging ascent. The best period for these expeditions is during July and August. August, however, is best in terms of available helicopter flights.

So if this sounds like the kind of experience you want to enjoy, just send me a request. This very challenging expedition to the Victory Peak summit will provide you with some truly unforgettable memories.

I can also lead you to the top of the spectacular Khan Tengri mountain that is also in the Tian-Shan mountains on this 21 day ascent.

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