Lenin peak (7134m) guided climbing expedition

It is my pleasure to propose you unforgettable 21-day expedition to the one of the highest peaks of former Soviet Union, which is also one of the easiest seventhousander.

Lenin Peak is the highest point of the Zaalaiski Alatau 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.

You need to have some mountaineering experience and be in optimal physical condition to attempt this ascent.

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.

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.
