Program of ascension to Lenin Peak 7134 m

The Lenin Peak (7,134 m) today is one of the most popular, easy of access and because of that most frequented peaks among 7,000m-odd summits of Pamir. It’s a common belief that the Lenin Peak is one of the easiest of the CIS’s four 7,000m-odd peaks to climb. To the certain extent that’s true but not in all. One should remember that the altitude over 7,000m makes the peak an object of high-altitude climbing. The route in itself is not a technically difficult one and normally is carried out by mountaineers climbing in a roped-up-pair manner. However, the success or failure of your expedition is often dependant on such treacherous factors as weather and pressing altitude. In order to succeed, a climber has to be of good physical conditions, have appropriate climbing gear and, of course, good acclimatization. Traditionally, expeditions access the Base Camp (BC) either from Tashkent (Uzbekistan) or Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan). But in case of a complex expedition aiming at more than one summit, for example: Muztag-Ata Peak + Lenin Peak, - it becomes expedient to access the BC from China driving down to the Alay Valley via "Irkeshtam" Pass.
Those who opt for access from Tashkent or Bishkek will depart to mountains from the town of Osh. Osh (also nicknamed as "The Southern Capital") is the largest city of the South Kyrgyzstan where you will be met by very good-natured and hospitable people. It is a city of busy green streets, dozens of cozy cafes and restaurants in the open air, a colourful oriental bazaar and the "Tahti Sulayman" (Solomon Throne Mountain) as main attraction. This mountain raises straight up in the middle of the town and looks spectacular against the backdrop of the town’s loud-voiced life reminding us of immediate proximity to the majestic mountains of Pamir-Alay - the "Roof of the World" as it is nicknamed. In Osh you can buy some foodstuff for your expedition such as vegetables, canned fish and pasta/noodles, but we suggest that you bring all your high-altitude foodstuff (especially sublimated food) with you as you will not be able to find any of those in Osh.
From Osh to the Base Camp of the Lenin Peak we drive along the Grand Pamir Tract along the route better known as the “Great Silk Road”, which Chinese-make silks were carried along to Europe in the olden times. Then you carry on to the Sary Tash Village where from a stunning view of the huge Zaalayskiy Range of Mountains opens up the view to the mountain country of Pamir. Then having crossed over the boisterous Kyzyl - Suu River and the vast Alay Valley you, at last, arrive in the Base Camp. The "Lenin Peak" Base Camp is favourably positioned in the green alpine zone on the picturesque glade - the "Edelweiss Glade" - in the area of Achik-Tash at the altitude of 3,600m above sea level. The BC’s location allows mountaineers good rest and recovery after high-altitude acclimatization ascents - the tactics that makes you chances to get to the top of the summit of the Lenin Peak much higher.

The program of the ascent for the Lenin Peak is recommended as acclimatization program for the alpinist, intending make expeditions to the Himalayan and Tibet regions, with ascent to such famous summits as K-2, Everest, and Macalu etc.

The program offers two ways of getting to base camp:

1. Via Bishkek (capital city of Kyrgyzstan). Flying Bishkek to Osh (note that your luggage allowance is 15 kilogrammes and overweight is paid EUR 0.5 per every extra kilo).

2. Via Tashkent (capital city of Uzbekistan). 6-7 hours drive Tashkent to Osh across the picturesque “Kamchik” Pass and further on along the drown-in-verdure Fergana Valley (travelling by road is cheaper and also provides an opportunity, after the main programme is over, of visiting world-famous historical cities - Samarkand and Bukhara).
