Lenin Peak (7134) 2020
Lenin Peak - 7134m
5th July - 24th July 2020
Highlights Of The Trip:
Peak Lenin (7134m) – considered the easiest peak over 7000m and probably the best background to attack a peak over 8000, afterwards.
Pamir Mountains are located in Central Asia and are formed by the junction of the Tian Shan, Karakorum, Kunlun and Hindu Kush ranges. They are among the world’s highest mountains.
Kyrgyzstan - Landlocked and mountainous, it borders Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west, Tadzhikistan to the southwest and China to the southeast.
Lenin Peak is located on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan in the Pamir mountain system. With its 7134 meters the Lenin Peak is the highest mountain of the Trans-Alay mountain range and one of the three seven thousanders of Kyrgyzstan. The two other seven thousanders - Pobeda Peak (7439 m) and Khan Tengri (7010 m) are also quite popular among climbers of the world, but Lenin Peak is the most reachable one for the wide range of mountaineers. There are no special technical difficulties and weather conditions in this area of the Pamir are quite favourable.
But do not forget that the Lenin Peak is after all a seven thousanders. The main difficulties that the climbers can face on the way to the top are the altitude, low temperatures and periods of bad weather. If you have never been to high mountains before, you should start with lower altitudes, such as Mount Elbrus , Scout peak or Cotopaxi
On your climb will be accompanied by a guide from Alexander adventures and a local climbing guild. On the way to the top you will stay at 4 camps set at different altitudes and make the accents on 3 peaks- Uhin Peak (5130 m), Mt. Razdelnaya (6168 m) and Lenin Peak (7134 m). We will have support from pack animals, porters, cooks and friendly camp staff. Just relax and enjoy the snowy peaks of the Pamir and get acquainted with the local cuisine and customs.
