Trekking to Lenin Peak Base Camp
(Across Kozho-Kelen village)
Your journey will begin in the ancient Osh city, in the south of Kyrgyzstan. From there you will go to the Kichik-Alai Valley. On the route, you will visit several villages where the lifestyle of the local population has remained virtually unchanged for centuries.
Kozho-Kelen village is a natural ethnographic complex with amazing nature and natural grottoes. It is located in the wide valley of the Dzhiptyk River, the left tributary of the Ak-Buura River. In the upper reaches of the village, on the left bank of the river, there are orange-colored rocks. At the very beginning of the cliffs is the Kojo-Kelen Cave, or rather, the Holy Grotto. This place is considered to be holy. Pilgrims come to it to pay tribute to their gods and take a bath in the Holy Grotto.
The village itself is very interesting. The life of local people is without any special novelty. There are still water mills and natural farming. Houses made of red clay fit into the landscape, as if they are an integral part of nature.
There is a view of the Alay valley and the majestic Pamir from the Dzhiptyk Pass (4,175 m). In good weather you can see such seventhousanders as Peak Lenin, Communism and Korzhenevskaya peaks, as well as Peak Kurumda.
At the end of the program we move to the base camp at 3,600 meters. In the base camp you will see the life of climbers who are preparing to conquer the seven thousand meters peak. You can climb Peak Petrovsky and the Travelers Pass with a guide.
