Lenin PeakAttention! Special offer for Lenin Peak expedition 2017!
Base Camp Achik-Tash will be active starting July 2nd till September 1st, 2017 .

Lenin Peak is the highest point of the Zaalaiski Alatay and is situated in its central part of the range. The altitude of the peak is 7134 meters above the level sea. It is the most easily accessible of the three 'seven thousand' meter peaks that are located in Kyrgyzstan, and very popular among mountain climbers.

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 route of ascent does not have any special technical difficulties and even the most extreme sportsmen is not left unimpressed by their descent from the summit.   Although the weather conditions in this area of the Pamir Range are quite favorable, it should not be forgotten that the  Peak is seven thousand meters high and so can be changeable. 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.
