This year was the 25th anniversary of the IMTM, and every year it attracts thousands of companies, travel agents and guests. Delegations from about 50 countries and a record number of 20 tourism ministers were in attendance.
Lenin Peak, that situated at the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, is the third high from five 7000m peaks on the territory of the Post Soviet Union Space. The classical route to the Lenin Peak does not have any steep rock or icy areas; it takes no special technical trainings or huge alpinist experience to go up. All mentioned features characterize the Peak as one of the most accessible 7000 m peaks. BUT! We have to remember that the actual height of Lenin Peak 7134 m, and behind the apparent availability of the mount we have serious risks with altitude. Successful climb demands responsible way of organization of any expedition.
At the footsteps of Lenin Peak, Ak Sai Travel set its own tent camp and started welcoming guests since 2003. Our base camp operates from the 1st of July till the 31st of August. There were more than 500 tourists in our camp from different parts of the world in 2018.
