Lenin Peak is situated between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in Pamir mountain chain. The mountan is one of the three seven thousander on the territory of Kyrgyzstan. The other two are Pobeda Peak (7439 m) and Khan-Tengri Peak(7010 m). Lenin Peak is the most accessible financially as well as technically. 

Generally Lenin Peak is the starting point for those climbers attempting the Snow Leopard program.  It is a particularly favorite place of both experienced mountain climbers and skiers. The classical route do not involve steep rock or ice climbing. To reach the top successfully one should have perfect personal physical condition, good stamina, acclimatization and appropriate climbing equipment. The main difficulties, for mountain climbers ascending the peak  are the altitude, low temperatures, periods of bad weather and, of course, glacial crevices.  

The Achik-Tash base camp, from which the ascent begins, is situated in the Alpine  meadows at an altitude of 3600 meters above the level sea.  The next, Camp 1, is located on the moraine, at an altitude of 4 400 meters. Both camps offer comfortable conditions for accommodation, and provide an ideal opportunity for rest and recovery after completion of the expedition. 

Lenin Peak was discovered by Alexei Fedchenko in 1871 and was initially named Kaufman Peak. The first ascent to the summit was in 1928 by three German mountaineers: Karl Wien, Eugen Allwein and Erwin Schneider. In the Soviet period, the mountain climbers started gaining experience of altitude with Lenin peak. Nowadays, every year, over a thousand climbers from all over the world ascend the Peak. Besides Lenin Peak, there are two more Peaks on the territory of Kyrgyzstan over 7 000 meters above the level sea: Khan Tengri and Pobeda.
