Feedbacks of the climbers

The Lenin Peak (7,134 m) is today one of the most popular, easily of accessed and hence most frequented summits among 7,000m peaks of the Pamir. It’s a common belief that the Lenin Peak is one of the easiest of the CIS’s four 7,000m-odd peaks to climb, a statement which is true to a certain extent but is far from representing the whole story. It must be remembered that an altitude over 7,000m places the peak clearly in the category of high-altitude climbing. The route in itself is not a technically difficult one and is normally carried out by mountaineers climbing in a roped-up-pair manner. However, the success or failure of your expedition is often dependant on such treacherous factors as weather and the ever pressing altitude. In order to succeed a climber has to be of good physical condition, have appropriate climbing gear and be fully prepared in terms of good, safe acclimatization.

Traditionally, expeditions access the Base Camp (BC) from the town of Osh. There is a flight to Osh (Turkish Airlines); also you can get there by driving from Tashkent (Uzbekistan) or by flight from Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan). From Osh to the Base Camp of the Lenin Peak we drive along the Grand Pamir Tract.

Attention please! Ascent to the summit of Lenin Peak is classed as an extreme activity. Each member takes complete responsibility for their decision to participate in this program and is responsible for all actions and all possible consequences of their participation in this program.

The program for the ascent of Lenin Peak is recommended as acclimatization for the prospective mountaineer intending to attempt high altitude expeditions within the Himalayan and Tibetan regions, the legendary peaks of K-2, Everest, and Makalu among them.

This program offers 3 ways of getting to Base camp:

1. Via Osh (also nicknamed as "The Southern Capital of Kyrgyzstan"). From Osh to the Base Camp of the Lenin Peak we drive along the Grand Pamir Tract. Recently new flights to Osh from Istanbul (Turkish Airlines), from Moscow and also from other cities of the CIS have been opened, as well as visa regime has been simplified, so the way of getting to Base Camp via Osh is the cheapest and most convenient one, as it allows saving your money and, most importantly, your time.
2. Via Bishkek (capital city of Kyrgyzstan). Flying Bishkek to Osh (note that your luggage allowance is 15 kilograms and excess weight is charged at EUR 0.5 for every additional kilo).
3. Via Tashkent (capital city of Uzbekistan). 6-7 hours drive from Tashkent to Osh across the picturesque “Kamchik” Pass then along the Fergana Valley (travelling by road is cheaper and also provides an opportunity, after the main program is over of visiting world famous historical cities - Samarkand and Bukhara).

In case of a complex expedition aiming at more than one summit (for example: Muztag-Ata Peak + Lenin Peak) it is often best to access BC from China, driving down to the Alay Valley via Irkeshtam Pass.

We will depart to the mountains from the town of Osh. Osh (also nicknamed as "The Southern Capital") is the largest city of southern Kyrgyzstan where you will be met by the good-natured and hospitable people it’s become to be known for. It is a city of busy green streets, cozy cafes and open air restaurants. A colorful oriental bazaar and the "Tahti Sulayman" (Solomon Throne Mountain) serve as the town’s main attractions. Throne Mountain rises straight up from the centre of the town and provides a spectacular backdrop to the town’s energetic vitality as well as serving to remind all of the region’s immediate proximity to the majestic mountains of the Pamir-Alay often nicknamed the "Roof of the World". Osh has plenty of places where we can buy foodstuffs and supplies for your expedition such as vegetables, canned foods and pasta/noodles, but we suggest that you bring all your own high-altitude foodstuffs (especially sublimated food) with you as you will not be able to find any of these in Osh.
From Osh to the Base Camp of the Lenin Peak we drive along the Grand Pamir Tract along the route better known as the “Great Silk Road”, where silks often of Chinese origin were carried along to Europe for centuries. Approximately halfway you will be served a hearty lunch in a yurt camp lost amidst the mountains. We then continue to the Sary Tash Village where a stunning view of the enormous Zaalayskiy Range of Mountains opens the view to the mountain country of Pamir. Having crossed over the boisterous Kyzyl - Suu River and the vast Alay Valley you will at last arrive at Base Camp. The "Lenin Peak" Base Camp is favorably positioned in the green alpine zone within the picturesque ‘Edelweiss Glade’ in the area of Achik-Tash at the altitude of 3,600m above sea level. The BC’s location allows prospective summiteers restful recovery after high-altitude acclimatization ascents - the tactics that will make the chances of a successful expedition to the peak of the mountain significantly greater.

Visas, Permits

Attention to the participants from European and other foreign countries!

In the beginning of August 2012 a law “About introduction of a visa-free regime for citizens of some states within 60 days” came into force. According to this law, the citizens of 44 countries from the list below have a right to enter Kyrgyzstan and stay on the territory of this republic without Kyrgyz visa during 60 days (not longer). This considerably simplifies a possibility of coming to Kyrgyzstan, cuts down expenses, and gives a significant advantage to those of our travelers who earlier had to buy the package with the option of arrival and departure via Bishkek, as it was possible to get Kyrgyz visa only at the Consular department of “Manas” airport on arrival. Now participants from 44 countries may arrive directly to Osh by means of new flight of Turkish airlines TK-360, in case this option is more convenient to someone. Other options of arrival and departure (via Tashkent or Bishkek) are also available.

The list of the states concerning which citizens the unilateral visa-free regime within 60 days is entered:

Lenin Peak ascension strategy.

Scheme of expedition to Lenin Peak


Leg 1: Base Camp (3,600 m) to Camp 1 (4,400 m): Ascend up to and over the Puteshestvennikov Pass (4,200 m) which usually takes 3 - 3.5 hours of walking. Snow is a possibility but the path is good. Descent from the pass is simple and doesn"t take long. Keep going on the left-hand side moraine of the Lenin Glacier. Cross the stream and carry on uphill to the track. Crossing the stream can sometimes be difficult due to high water. Carry on to the moraine of the Lenin Glacier (reference point is a big stone with a cross drawn on it). Walk along the moraine to the Camp for another 20-30 minutes. The ascent takes a total of 3-5 hours. Suggested BC departure time is no later than midday. It takes 4 - 5 hours to get to Camp 1 depending on the weather, the pace you"re comfortable with and personal preparedness for climbing.
Leg 2: Camp 1 (4,400 m) - Camp 2 (5,300 m): From Camp 1 keep straight on to the centre of the North Face (beginning of the slope) bypassing multiple crevasses till you reach a steep snow-covered up-swing. Use fixed ropes to cross the steep snow slope (80 m long, gradient up to 35-40 degrees) then traverse accross keeping up and to the right towards the snow plateau (“Skovoroda”). Carry on across the scree slope to Camp 2. Roping up is highly recommended on the whole stretch. Preferable departure time is before 06:00 a.m. Allow 5-8 hours for this leg.
Leg 3: Camp 2 (5,300 m) - Camp 3 (6,100 m): Ascend on the slope 25-30-degrees steep keeping to the left of the rocks aiming for the ridge. The wind may be very strong on this section. Turn left and carry on along the level ridge towards the top of the Razdelnaya Peak (6,200m, deep snow). Traverse to the left of the Razdelnaya Peak and descend to Camp 3. Optimal departure time is before 09:00 a.m. Allow 4-7 hours.
Leg 4: Camp 3 (6,100 m) - Lenin Peak (7,134 m) - Camp 3 (6,100 m): Uphill on the snow covered rocky ridge towards a steep and narrow icy section (known as "Nosh" - “knife”). Carry on along the “Nosh” (gradient 40-45 degrees, 70 m long) being careful of the wind which is often strong here. Find your way between the rocks walking along the ridge across pre-apical snow fields (the deep snow will noticeably decrease your speed of ascent). Carry on across a lengthy apical plateau to the top (the apex is marked by the largest cairn). Descend the same way you came up. Early start at 3-4 a.m. is obligatory as it takes 10-14 hours to get to the top and back to Camp 3.
If needed, at the altitude of 6,400 m another interim camp (Camp 4) may be set up on the ridge plateau.

1. What are the minimal technical qualification requirements for climbing Lenin Peak?
Lenin Peak is not that technically difficult to climb. Still, you should have certain climbing experience. For instance, you should be able to move on snow-covered and ice-covered slopes of different gradients, use crampons and be fully aware of safety rules in the mountains. In case you do not have any previous climbing experience we suggest that you book services of our mountain guide. What is essential is having a sound physical condition with good acclimatization (especially if you don’t have any previous high-altitude ascent experience). Ascending along the standard route does not require any complex techniques but you should always take into account a risk of a possible quick change of weather and the general high-altitude environment so use your caution and common sense. We suggest “by step” acclimatization that means having a series of 2-3 interim climbs up and down the route with every next climb reaching a higher altitude. Your first climb may be very difficult for you (heavy headache, little or no appetite, lack of oxygen etc.). Do not forget to see our doctor before starting the climb!

 

2. What insurance cover limit do you suggest?
Insurance is prerequisite - for that extreme case You never want to think over about. But common sense gives a prompt that You have to care about having it in order to feel being secured at ascending because service of rescue team and transport cost quite expensive. So, Your individual insurance policy has to be drawn on not less then 30.000$ (USA). Besides, You have to do that being at Your Motherland - before You arrival in start point of expedition. Please, send us scanned copy of the individual insurance policy beforehand at preliminary correspondence. Besides, you should give copy of the insurance policy to Commandant at once after arrival in BC.

Physical training and acclimatization.
There is a common opinion that out of all seven-meters-high peaks of the CIS Peak Lenin is most easy-to-climb. This partly is true but not for one hundred percent.
Firstly, one should not forget that the decent height of Peak Lenin alone, which is in excess of 7,000m, makes it an object of high-altitude mountaineering, not to mention that any mountain has to always be dealt with respect. Despite the climbing route technically being not complex, treacherous factors such as unpredictable weather and depressing altitude can play decisive role in the success or failure of your expedition. Not only good physical preparedness but, too, appropriate quality gear and, of course, good acclimatization (especially to those inexperienced high-altitude climbers) are crucial for the success of their climb. Do not spare your efforts and days for getting full-value acclimatization - otherwise it may turn into a higher loss of time wasted in the course of ascent for recreation of your energy and, in the worst case, put the success of the entire climb under question.
Usually, consequences of anoxia (oxygen starvation) are already felt at the altitude of 3,500m to 4,000m. At such altitudes and higher the organism of even most healthy though untrained and non-acclimatized person may develop altitude sickness (local Kyrgyz call it as “tootek”). By the way, even passengers travelling along the Pamir Highway sometimes may be taken by altitude sickness. Symptoms of altitude sickness are as follows: acute drop of physical performance, dizziness, headache, nausea and, in some cases, vomiting. In worst cases altitude sickness may cause fatal consequences. There is no medication against the altitude sickness, and the only remedy that invariably helps is as fast as possible downwards transportation of the patient.
Most effective means that helps to prevent altitude sickness has always been altitude acclimatisation which is based on human organism’s ability of adaptation to the rarefied atmosphere obtained as a result of series of ascents and stays at higher altitudes. The organism acclimatised in this way can easier withstand harmful consequences of oxygen starvation. The one aiming at the summit should first carry out a number of forays to the higher and higher altitude and only after having ensured acceptable level of acclimatisation proceed with storming the summit.
Our tourist company offers a standard programme designed to take into account all conditions prerequisite to good acclimatisation, including extra days in case of bad weather. The programme we offer provides optimum conditions for successful ascension to the Peak Lenin.
Ideally, any high-altitude climbing should be preceded by training which is to include climbing a summit that is lower than the main-goal one. For instance, aiming at a “seventhousander” one should have first climbed a mountain at least 5,000m high.

 

Simple truths of safety precautions.
Another aspect is safety. We do not recommend climbing solo as the recent history of Peak Lenin solo-climbing tends to report growing number of accidents. What we do suggest is your finding a good partner or joining any group of climbers. Your better off would be hiring an experienced high-altitude guide for you so that at any time you had a confidence about your next step and, in case of hardship or emergency, you had a reliable person nigh you.
We recommend you AT ALL TIMES TO HAVE WITH YOU YOUR PERSONAL FIRST AID KIT which shall contain medicines matching your particular individual health conditions and tolerances. Besides, you personal medical kit must contain other medications common with and widely used by high-altitude mountaineers (see in the “Medical Kit” section).

 

Foodstuff.
As to foodstuff and cooking, there will be no particular problems for you up to 4,400m - our personnel will take care of this. What really may put you in a dilemma is your high-altitude foodstuff beyond 4,400m. You should remember, at higher altitudes water boils at lower temperatures hence it takes longer to get your food cooked. More time for cooking means more gas canisters and thence more heavy backpacks/loads to carry. Standard programme assumes gas consumption rate for two persons equivalent to 1 canister (230 grams) per day. You can recharge your own gas canisters at our base camp (BC) without limitation. You may also buy brand new canisters from the BC manager.
More about foodstuff. Ideally, your high-altitude foodstuff should require no cooking/boiling, be of less possible weight and of maximum possible energy value (luckily, most of today’s supermarkets are happy to satisfy nearly all your gastronomic whims). Importantly, do not expect a last-minute shopping high-altitude foodstuff in Osh - you will hardly be able to find any good-quality concentrated or sublimated or packet foodstuff there. Take your own one from your home country.
As a rule of thumb, most of mountaineers feel apathy towards eating at altitudes above 6,000m. Therefore, it doesn’t make sense carrying a lot of foodstuff to the upper camps. Trust us, better part of the stuff you would bring upon your shoulders to the upper camps will stay there forever without being eaten. You should better think over diversification of your high-altitude ration. Tastes, surely, differ, but majority of climbers prefer the food that is liquid and saline. It has clear and logical explanation: thaw-out water used for cooking has practically zero content of salts while the loss of liquid (dehydration) by organism at higher altitudes is a continuous, normal, non-stop process. At the heights above 6,000m, a human must consume up to 4 litres of liquid per day so that to compensate the loss. Some climbers, with pleasure, have food that tastes sweet-and-sour. Important note: avoid over-diligence, as digestive-system disorders are quite commonly seen during climbs and are always annoying when you are at your last stretch before the summit. Take quality of your water at the heights up to 4,500m as your high priority. Better use mineral water that is available on sell in both BC and ABC. Do not make saving on your health!

 

Carrying loads from BC to C1.
Local population always readily offer their services to travellers - with carrying their loads, providing means of transportation etc. Take our advice: if you use services of our company then you would better be using services of those local Kyrgyz people who cooperate with our company on legal contractual basis. This is the company’s prerequisite condition with respect to safety of and warranty to your loads and settling of any disputes that may arise in case of loss of or damage to your loads.

 

Paperwork.
We highly recommend that you provide your passport details to us well beforehand - at least 3 weeks, better 1 month before your planned arrival in Kyrgyzstan, so that we could timely obtain all necessary permits for you.
Upon arrival in the country you are to pick up from customs office and write in 2 (two) customs declaration forms. Out of the two form one form stays with the customs while the other one is to be stamped and returned back to you by the customs officer so that you could produce it to customs officer at time of you departure the country. In the customs declaration you are to describe all cash money, traveller’s cheques, weapons and ammunition (if any), psychotropic substances and other items that needs to be declared under the form. Make sure that you fill in the form in two (identical) copies even though the customs officer may assert to you that it is not necessary. The point is that at the time of your leaving the country you are to declare valuables and money you’ve got once again. And customs officer is in right to require your first (old) declaration to be produced. If you fail to produce the old one and your new declaration states some amount of money that you are taking out of the country then the officer has a right to confiscate this money. Once again, we reiterate: if the officer at time of your entering the country tells you that one form is enough while the officer at time of your exiting the country requires the old form to be produced then how do you prove him that you do not take country’s money out but are taking just your own money unless you have your entering declaration?

Замечательно прошло восхождение на пик Ленина. Масса эмоций, хочется еще раз приехать и снова взойти на вершину!

Компания и гиды молодцы, работают классно, настоящие спецы своего дела.

Уважуха, ребята! Так держать!!!

I was lucky to meet Pamir - Expeditions stuff at Camp 1 after I was transported there with altitude sickness. Pavel- the doctor and Denis- the guide took care of me and did a great job to safe my life and made me smiling despite my health troubles. I hope to come back on Pik Lenin in the near future but only with Pamir -Expeditions company. They are really good in what they do. Thanks boys!

Огромное Спасибо, ребята!!!
Не очень красивы сожженные губы
И щеки, потрескав, не так уж милы,
И вроде невзрачна тропа, что их губит,
И камни, что падают сверху малы...
О них ты спроси у Костяна с Никитой,
Что вроде бы молоды с виду пока,
Но истинный опыт оценишь попозже,
Откушав у Шефа - Ислама Ака!
А если вдруг другу совсем поплохело,
Сломала "горняшка" иль придавил груз,
Тащи сразу к "Доку" уставшее тело
Любого поставит на ноги Навруз!
Надеюсь, простят те, что чтут эти строки,
Что имя не каждого внес я в формат.
Простите, отвлекся, ведь в кружку мне снова
Чайку подливает с душой Азамат!

Нам повезло!!! Потому что обратились в ЦентрлАзия!!! Со стороны компании профессионализм, гостепреимство и неравнодушие... с нашей сбытие стремления достичь ВЕРШИНЫ!!! Со словами благодарности команда "Эльбрус" (Михаил, Вадим, Андрей). июль 2014г,
