Ascent to Lenin Peak without guide
(From Bishkek to Bishkek )

Peak Lenin (7,134 m) is located on the border of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The Asia Mountains Company offers to visit the BC at the foot of Peak Lenin from Kyrgyzstan. The camp is installed at 3,600 meters on the picturesque green meadow strewn with small bright flowers. The main inhabitants of the area are marmots. You will be able to hear their whistles and take pictures of plump shy animals.

Peak Lenin is named Abu Ali ibn Sinna (more known as Avizenna in the West) in Tajikistan. There are 16 routes to the peak. The classical one goes over Razdelnaya Summit. It doesn’t have technical difficulties and, thus, is considered to be not complicated. The seven-thousander is one of the most accessible. The main obstacles are low temperatures, altitude, strong wind, avalanches, bad vision. Therefore, calling it an “easy seven-thousander” is quite conditional.

For a safe and successful ascent, it is advisable to use the services of experienced guides who know the terrain well, orient themselves with poor visibility, have the skills to rescue from cracks, and are able to provide first aid. A guide will always help in organizing rescue works.
