About Lenin Peak:

Lenin Peak (7134 m) is located in a central part of Zaalay ridge, which forms a natural border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. In the west the summit is connected with Dzerjinski peak (6713 m), in the east over the Krylenko pass (5820 m) - with a crest of Edinstvo peak (6673 m). In the south, in a spur of Lenin Peak massif, a peak of 6852 m is located. It was named for Marshal Zhukov in 1974.
From the north slopes of the Lenin Peak massif a glacier of the same name flows down. With western and eastern sources it is 9 kilometers long.

 

From the south slopes of the summit glaciers Bolshoy (in the east) and Maluy (in the west) wind their way down. The summit itself rises over the glacier’s source for more than 3000 m, and both the northern and southern slopes of the summit are covered in thick glacial ice and snow. Here steepness can reach angles of up to 45-55 degrees, and the slopes are cut with deep cracks. Climbers should also be aware that slides and avalanches are common here.
The massif of Peak Lenin is visible from different points of the Alay ridge and the eastern Pamirs. From the south (from the shore of Karakul lake) it looks like a sloping summit.
From the point of approach Lenin Peak is one of the world’s most accessible peaks above seven-thousand meters. Paved roads come up to the mountain’s foothills and reach “Edelweiss glade” – the location of a base camp (3600 m). In geographic terms this area is known as Achik-Tash (open stone). Afterwards the path continues along the “Onion field” to the Puteshestvennik pass where it then it dips and leads to Lenin glacier, the central part of which our upper base camp is located at an altitude of 4200 m.

 

Ascending Lenin Peak doesn’t require any extreme technical skills in alpinism, and weather conditions are usually favorable. Nevertheless, on the eastern and western ridges of the peak beginning at an altitude of approximately 6,200m, there are often gale force winds which can tear up tents and sweep snow from off wide ridge. You may often see snow “flags” (gusts carrying powdered snow which then cascade banner-like through the air off of mountaintops) over the Lenin Peak summit turned to the east.
The northern slopes of Lenin Peak are covered with deep snow and are very good for skiing. 

 

About our Base Camps: 

“Asia Mountains” base camp – is located at an altitude of 3600 m, on a picturesque glade covered with edelweiss. The camp is surrounded by small lakes. It’s a cosy, nice place for rest and recreation.

 

Camp 1 – is located on a moraine at an altitude of 4200 m. It has all the facilities of a proper base camp, however harsh weather conditions and a notable lack of greenery generally give it a pronounced feeling of severity, hence it is usually preferable to go down to the lower altitude base camp where sun is warmer.

Both camps are well-equipped for rest and recreation. In the base camp there are Kyrgyz national yurts, which are nice and cozy. One of the yurts is set up in traditional Kyrgyz style however the rest are equipped with modern conveniences such as stoves, necessary furniture (tables, benches), electricity, audio and video equipment and even a bar as well where you can have snacks, tea, coffee or strong drinks at any time. In Camp 1 (4200 m) instead of yurts we use “Anaconda” tents. They are cozy as well, but – as we like to say - comfort is actually created by people, not by things.
In both camps alpinists will be accommodated in double base tents.
In the Base Camp there is also a good shower with hot water. Clean, cold water is also in abundance as we have a natural spring nearby which is very important since basically, in this area the water is taken from rivers.

 

Connection to the outside world  
Needless to say that now, in the the 21st-century, there are not just one but two cellular phone operators providing coverage and contact with the outside world in the area of Lenin Peak: Megacom and Beeline. Staying connected is quite simple: you get local SIM card and connect to roaming, and you even may have an internet if your phone is web-enabled. However, one piece of gentile advice we offer is that you try switching off your mobile phone – as if you were at the symphony – and just allowing yourself to be swept up in the experience! Leave the busy matters of the everyday world behind and simply enjoy being so far away from civilization.



Connection with the mountain
Each group gets a radio, so we will always remain informed of where you are and what you are doing.
Nutrition in the camps is provided three times a day. Our meals, however, are no common, ordinary expedition food. Our cooks are actually legendary in Achik-Tash valley. But the more importantly perhaps is that fact that they also consider everyone – vegetarians included, and have been known to surprise our campers with a variety of vegetarian dishes.  

Additionally, we offer gas canister services (refilling/purchase), equipment rental, high-altitude porters, mountain guides and many other things.

 

 

Description of the "classic" rout to Lenin Peak.   


From “Asia Mountains” base camp (3600 m) to Camp1 (4200 m). 
Despite of the fact that even without acclimatization first camp is just “a stone’s throw” from Base Camp (BC), it is better to start early in the morning, for example at around 7-8 a.m. or at least in the early afternoon. Later in the day the water level in the river which you have to cross after Pyteshestvennik pass is much higher. 

First, following a good path from Base Camp you will arrive at the “Onion field”. With any luck there will be some transport in BC then you may even get a ride. The “Onion field” gets its name as it’s totally covered with wild onion. Afterwards we will follow a trail to Pyteshestvennik pass (4128 m). Ascent time is between one and two-and-a-half hours. From the pass you go down to the left moraine of the Lenin glacier. A mountain path goes along the steep flow side slope. One must be especially attentive during this part of the climb to keep an eye out for falling stones. The best time for crossing the river is before 10 a.m. or after 6p.m. Crossing can be accomplished by either stepping on stones or wading through shallower parts of the river.
Right after the river we will follow the left moraine. To avoid walking in circles one should also be attentive here as well, as there are lots of stones which travelers have marked over the years. You come out then to the Lenin glacier (4100 m) and along ice you reach Camp 1 (4200 m). Ascent time is anywhere from four to eight hours, sometimes even longer.

 

From Camp1 (4200 m) to Camp2 (5300 m). 
Start should be as early as possible. It is a tactical error to think that you can reach Camp 2 close to the evening and go straight to sleep. The best time to start is no later than 9 a.m., but earlier is better. The trickiest place at this part is “Pan”. One can easily get roasted there, so it is best to hurry and tackle it earlier in the day before it gets too hot.
The ascent begins straight away from Camp 1. En-route you may see lots of narrow cracks. You should climb along the steep snow-ice slope between two ice falls.   
At one of the sections you will have to climb using fixed rope of 100 m length, as slope reaches 35-40°. After this ascent the slope becomes narrower, but here you get crack surprises. During the season they are all open and are not dangerous. But at the beginning, when the foot of man hasn’t stepped, you should be quite attentive. 
The pan is situated at an altitude of 5100 m and the way through this place can be avalanched. That is one more reason to reach the camp as earlier as possible. Camp 2 is located on a flow side slope. If you have enough power for acclimatization you may have a walk to the pass at an altitude of 5600  m or play a football match with a can if you find someone to join you.

 

 

From Camp2 (5300 m) to Camp3 (6100 m). 
Optimum timeframe for heading out from camp is no later than 8 in the morning.
You get from Camp 2 to a saddle and further climbing the slope you reach Razdelnaya summit. It’s not necessary to climb the summit itself, but we recommend it. Just before you reach the summit you need to traverse downwards to the left in the direction of the saddle, where Camp 3 is situated (6100 m). Strong wind is usual for this area, especially in the night time. Ascent time is from 4 to 7 hours.   

 

 

From Camp3 (6100 m) to the summit (7134 m). 
You should start climbing early in the morning, not later than 6-7 in the morning, but better at 5 a.m. You ascent along snow and rocky ridge from the saddle (6100 m) up to the steep narrow ice rise, called “knife”.  The “knife” is a 200 m long steep, narrow, snow and ice covered ridge.
It’s the most dangerous part of the route and it’s considered to be a key of ascent. You climb afterwards along sloping rocks at the ridge and forward to the summit plateau at an altitude of 6900-7000 m. Further there will be summit fields. The summit way lies on the left side of summit dome.

Lenin Peak doesn’t have an explicit summit. For convenience it’s the biggest stone pyramid on the summit dome.
Descent from the summit to Camp3 goes along the way of ascent. Descent time is usually 2-3 times shorter than ascent time.

 

 

Advice. If you have not reached the summit by 2p.m., then you should return to camp 3 and try again at another time. Weather usually gets bad after 2p.m. and it may easily take a turn for the worse with fog and other annoying hazards. The most dangerous scenario is getting lost which is quite easy at the summit dome. It is best to have a GPS or simple bamboo landmarks, to help you to find the way back to Camp 3. 

Remember! The way down is as difficult as ascent of the summit 

 

Good luck in the mountains!
