Lenin Peak area provides a lot ofopportunities for adventure tours and those who want to stay in the Pamirs - perhaps with their children (recommended age - 8 and higher) during summer holidays - without climbing the mountain. It is where you can enjoy majestic alpine landscapes with fabulous lakes and , amazingly clean mountain air, easy mountain hiking and walking trails, as well as meeting the local Pamiri people and getting familiar with everyday life of nomads. All these adventure activities are possible in the vicinity of a comfortable yurt camp on Edelweiss Meadow (3,600 m) at the foot of the giant snowcapped mountain Lenin Peak (7,134 m).
You can also play volleyball, take part in fascinating master classes or relax in a sauna in the camp, as well as sample the delicious traditional Kyrgyz cuisine. You may want to hike up to the top of one of the nearest hills to enjoy the breathtaking view of Alay Valley, or to Yurt Camp 1 (4,400 m) where climbers from many countries set out on their Lenin Peak conquests.
Thanks to our Yurt Camp convenient location accessible to motor vehicles, this adventure trip can be taken as an exciting supplement to a cultural sightseeing tour of visa-free entry Kyrgyzstan (44 countries; max. 60-day stays) or just one of individual mountain getaways
Day 1: Arrival in Osh. Meeting at airport or railway station. Transfer to mountain camp (Base Camp) on Edelweiss Meadow at Lenin Peak Foot (3,600 M). Hike up to Lukovaya (Leek) Meadow (3800 M).
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 colorful 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.
Day 2: Excursion to Lakes Across Achik-Tash River Valley.
A walking trip to the yurts of the local people, acquaintance with the life and traditions of Kyrgyz nomads, sampling of koumiss (also kumiss or kumis). So we go on an excursion to the nearest lakes across Achik-Tash River Valley. Lakes are here and there in the valley, each is uniquely beautiful and so promising terrific photos. You can even swim in them: the water is cold but bearable.
Day 3: Hike up Petrovskiy Peak Ridge. Master class in plov cooking.
We invite you to ascend the ridge running from Petrovskiy Peak (4,830 m). The hike will not be difficult and yield a lot of pleasure, especially if you are a lover of photography. To reach an altitude of 4,400 m would be enough; from here you can obtain a great panorama: the base camps in full view, the Alay Valley on the horizon, multicoloured slopes on the other side, the Travellers’ (Puteshestvennikov) Pass and the glacier of Lenin Peak behind it going up, like a broad white road, to the snowy caps of the peak proper.
Day 4: Hike up to Camp 1 (4,400 M) via Puteshestvennikov Pass.
Join us hiking up to Camp 1 (4,400 m)slowly but surely, with breathtaking views opening before you at every turn of the trail. We shall cross Leek Meadow, saying hello to the marmots, and reach the waterfall. Its water is always brown, irrespective of rain, snow or no precipitation at all. Then we shall go up to and over Puteshestvennikov (Travelers’) Mountain Pass (4,150 m), go down to the stream and ford it; when autumn is coming, it can be crossed along stepping stones.
Then we shall hike along Lenin Glacier and ascend the moraine Yurt Camp 1 is pitched on. It will take from 5 to 7 hours to get there but it is well worth the effort. The view of Lenin Peak you will get in Camp 1 is absolutely different: you can see the peak itself and the lower part of its huge snowy slope; so close to you now, it is running up and away…
Day 5: Optional: Ascending a 4,750 m peak. For the rest of the group: Free time, walking around Camp 1 (4,400 m).
Due to its structure, the ridge leading to the 4,750-metre summit that you are to climb has no snow on its slopes, which makes its ascending quite easy. On the other hand, walking up you will have an extremely extensive snow-covered slope to your left, with long lines of mountaineers with heaviest rucksacks behind their backs going up and down it. And ahead you will have an approaching white wall, which is one of the incredibly tall sides of Lenin Peak. This giant rises so high into the sky that you cannot discern its top, however hard you lift up your head. You just see an infinitely tall, perfectly beautiful white wall, and you cannot believe it is real.
Day 6: Descent to Yurt Camp (3,600 m). A trip to the Canyon of the Achik Tash River.
It is a pity we cannot stay in Yurt Camp 1 longer. As we come back to Yurt Camp, we are cheered and invited to dinner - Bon appétit! You will be given our company’s certificates of achievement in reaching the 4,400-meter altitude in the Pamirs. Congratulations!
Day 7: Transfer to Osh.
Hotel check-in. Saying goodbye to the majestic mountains, you will set out on a journey back to warm Osh city.
Day 8: Transfer to airport. Departure.
