Mt. Lenin Peak (7134 m) is considered to be one of the most popular, easily of accessed and hence most frequented summits among 7,000 m peaks of the Pamir. It’s a common belief that the Lenin Peak (Pik Lenin) is one of the easiest of the CIS’s four 7,000 m-odd peaks to climb, a statement which is true to a certain extent but is far from representing the whole story. It must be remembered that an altitude over 7,000 m places the peak clearly in the category of high-altitude climbing. The ascent route in itself is not a technically difficult one and is normally carried out by mountaineers climbing in a roped-up-pair manner. However, the success or failure of your Lenin Peak expedition is often dependant on such treacherous factors as weather and the ever pressing altitude. In order to succeed a climber has to be of good physical condition, have appropriate climbing gear and be fully prepared in terms of good, safe acclimatization. Traditionally, expeditions access the Base Camp (BC) from the town of Osh (there is Turkish Airlines flight to Osh).

The evident advantage of the financial affordability of the Lenin Peak program lays in the fact, that the helicopter services will not be necessary for reaching the Base Camp, using of standard vehicle will be enough. From Osh to the Base Camp of the Lenin Peak we drive along the Pamir Highway M-41. Attention please! Lenin Peak ascent is classed as an extreme activity. Each member takes complete responsibility for their decision to participate in this program and is responsible for all actions and all possible consequences of their participation in this program. The program for the ascent of Lenin Peak is recommended as acclimatization for the prospective mountaineer intending to attempt high altitude expeditions within the Himalayan and Tibetan regions, the legendary peaks of K-2, Everest, and Makalu among them.
