Peak Lenin Expedition 2018. Climb Lenin Peak (7134m)


(Business option)


from 1000$

Lenin Peak

Mt. Lenin Peak (7134m) is considered to be 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 (Pik Lenin) 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 ascent 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 Lenin Peak 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 Turkish Airlines flight to Osh). The evident advantage of the financial affordability of the Lenin Peak program lays in the fact, that the helicopter services will not be necessary for reaching the Base Camp, using of standard vehicle will be enough. From Osh to the Base Camp of the Lenin Peak we drive along the Pamir Highway M-41.

Attention please! Lenin Peak ascent 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.

Basic program for ascent to the Lenin Peak 2018:
Day 1 Early arrival in Osh. Drive from Osh to the Base Camp of Lenin Peak (3600 m) on Edelweiss Glade (280km, 5 hours). Accommodation in tents.



Located in South KyrgyzstanOsh is often referred to as ‘the southern capital’. It is the country’s second largest city. Once you arrive in Osh, you will meet kind and hospitable people and see green busy streets with a lot of cozy cafes.

It will take 5-6 hours to get to Yurt Camp (Base Camp of Lenin Peak) in a comfortable motor vehicle along Pamir Highway (M41 highway). Almost immediately beyond the city the terrain becomes hilly, as if informing us of what we are to expect further on the way. And the further we went, the more grandiose and magnificent everything around us was becoming. After you have moved over Taldyk Mountain Pass (3,600 m), you will see the stunning scene of Alay Valley with the majestic snow-capped Zaalay Range of the Pamirs towering over it. The Alay Valley is characterized by extensive green fields, marmots occasionally running across the road, grazing horses, a bottomless sky and blue mountain chains on the horizon.

Upon arrival at the Base Camp (3,600 m) on Edelweiss Glade you will be accommodated in comfortable base tents equipped with wooden floors and electricity (bedclothes are also provided). More of a hotel-room-sans-conveniences (located just outside) than a tent our participants are often pleasantly surprised.

The «Edelweiss Glade» BC is the largest one at the Achik Tash Tract and is the final point where it’s possible to trust the wheels of your off-road Jeep. Here’s the end of the “easy going” – your transport relies on your feet only from here on out!

Base Camp (3,600 m) is a complex of structures with all that’s necessary for comfortable dwelling: tents, kitchen, vapor bath, a number of toilets, a volleyball playing field, and most importantly a number of warm yurts (heated every day!), which can be used either as a dining-room or potentially a dancing hall!

Day 2 Get acquainted with the area. Prepare yourself for ascent.



Wake up in the morning and get your breath stolen away with a stunning view: snow-clad XIX Party Conference Peak, pointed Pertovskiy Peak and, of course: the inimitable Lenin Peak. Tomorrow you set off to the Camp 1 which is a good point to think over where to leave your extra luggage and how to fill your spare time on the expedition. Your luggage will be perfectly safe in the BC’s luggage office, no need to worry as the Base Camp Superintendent is fully responsible for its integrity.

As for the first day’s free time, our best advice is not to stay idle in the camp all day but rather have a round hike to the Puteshestvennikov (Travelers’ Pass 4,200m) or walk down the valley for closer views of the alpine lakes. This affords the best acclimatization you can get at this stage, something you will be no doubt be thankful for further along the line.

Day 3 Ascent to Camp 1 (4400 m).



The ascent to Puteshestvennikov Pass (4,200 m) on a well-trodden track usually takes 1.5 to 2.5 hours - depending on the physical conditions of the participants. It’s always windy on the pass, which may also be snow-covered. Take a deep breath of air into your lungs as the panoramic view that opens up before you from the “Marmots’ Glade” lying just below the pass is astonishing. Local residents of the glade - marmots - whistling out different tunes dart in and out their holes, heedless of observing visitors.

Descent from the pass is simple and does not take long. Carry on along the track that goes nearly horizontally, keeping in parallel to the left-hand side moraine. Cross a rapid stream and carry on uphill along the path leading to the Lenin Glacier - approximately 2.5 to 3 hours. Crossing the stream can sometimes be difficult because of high, violent water. Further along the body of the Lenin Glacier takes only 30 to 40 minutes. Mind crevasses! Note the bolder with a cross image and walk along the moraine to Camp 1 for 20 to 30 minutes.

Total ascent time is about 3 to 4.5 hours.

Our Camp 1 is set up on the moraine of the Lenin Glacier and truly is most comfortable camp of the area. Three spacious and comfortable yurts provide nice and constant warmth. In 2007’s season we have managed to couple (!) two yurts - an achievement unheard of even by experienced Kyrgyz shepherds!

The yurt is the place you can get a delicious meal, cup of tea or brewed coffee. Listen to music, guitar playing, or use your PC to look through your photos or maybe even organize a party for a special occasion: completion of a successful assent, for instance!

You are accommodated in the same kind of comfortable base tents shared between 2-3 persons.

Day 4 Ascent to Camp 2 (5300 m).



Out we go now to the Camp 1 - straight up and onward! First uphill along the Lenin Glacier to the foot of the grandiose North Face then further up across menacing crevasses on the steep slope, covered in very deep snow (80m-long stretch, gradient 35-40 degrees) using fixed ropes or climbing in a zigzag. Do not forget to stock your backpacks with sufficient amount of water and UV-protection cream (factor 25 and higher)! We then traverse the slope keeping to the right aiming at the plateau colloquially known as “Skovoroda” (Frying Pan). Cross the “Skovoroda” to reach Camp 2 (6 to 7 hours).

If you are a solo climber then you would better off finding a partner or hiring a guide for the day - we would certainly highly recommend this as over the years the snow cover situation on the slope has been changing dramatically, and not to the better.

Day 5 Ascent to Camp 3 (6100 m).



From Camp 2 we ascend along the 25 to 30-degree steep slope to the adjacent ridge (2006’s season marked the path for a number of new big crevasses). Then, we carry on along the lengthy and nearly level slope, traversing it towards the last upward swing before the top of Razdelnaya Peak (6,200m, deep snow). From the top descend to “peremychka” (“saddle”) at 6,100 m. For the last two years the Camp 3 (6,100 m) has been positioned just at the foot of the Razdelnaya Peak.

The ascent normally takes about 5 to 6 hours. In case you feel nausea or suffer from a headache you should have appropriate the first-aid gear with you - you are at 6,100 m above sea level, you know!

Day 6 Descent to Camp 1 (4400 m).



Descent is carried out on the same way and takes less time and effort. You can reach Camp 1 in 4 to 5 hours and there plunge yourself back into the comfort of civilization: Internet, good food and a cup of brewed coffee or a can of fruit juice.

Rest. You’ll be much better off that way for the next day’s descent to the Base Camp (3,600 m) where you can restore your physical strength and replenish your energy. The rule is: the lower the altitude, the faster and better restoration. After all, sleeping at a leafy green spot is far more pleasant.

Day 7 Descent to Base Camp (3600 m).



Oh, “Edelweiss Glade”! Oh, Base Camp! Home sweet home for us after all these days in those cheerless, endless snow fields! Feel free to strip your clothes off and lie down in the grassy glade, breathing in the aromas of the alpine motley grass, bathing in the warming beams of the Asian sun…

Those returning to BC after an ascent often dream of a feeling of CLEANLINESS. The BC administration offers excellent vapor baths available daily in the afternoon.

Day 8 Rest day.



“Edelweiss Glade” is an excellent place for full-body relaxation. Those who’ve had enough of languishing in bed can seek active relaxation as we have a volley-ball net hanged up across the camp site with a ball always primed for use. If only every day was an active rest day! By the way, the volley-ball pitch regularly houses international games that everyone may take part in! Some participants play for specific...’interests’, for instance: a ram against a crate of beer. Fancy a game?

Day 9 Rest day.



Today you have a great opportunity to walk around and explore the picturesque environment, making friends of the local marmots and snapping reams of envy inducing photos for the folks back home. There are so many lakes around in Achik-Tash valley’s grassland that it seems like once upon a time, long ago when the Gods of these harsh lands had been in something of a good mood, they ventured to decorate these cheerless areas with something bright and joyful. The divine bowl capsizing high above, the refreshing blue water gushed out spreading from green hills to lowlands, deluging all the carols and cavities of this landscape. You can even swim here now!

Day 10 Ascent to Camp 1 (4400 m).



Along the now well known path get to the Camp meet with its inhabitants and visit the yurt...

It’s extremely cozy here - just like home. When lanterns begin to shine and the darkness of the sky becomes dense and cold, the little world of the C1 converges to the size of micro cosmos, its life continuing to the illuminated island of the moraine deep inside of Lenin glacier… It’s strange to realize that you are, as such a small, defenseless person, at a dizzying distance high in the mountains, amid the mysterious and powerful Pamir... and you’re alright! You can’t get much cooler than that!

Day 11 Ascent to Camp 2 (5300 m).



Upwards again… The way does not seem quite so long as it was the first time around - this is normal and it’s a definite improvement as you’re able to look around and appreciate the scenery. And, at the same time as if by some miracle - your breathing isn’t quite so thrown out of rhythm by that capricious mistress that is altitude! Your shoulders feel the deluge of sun rays - the weather couldn’t be better today! Everyone thinks about the final goal on today’s ascent - most wishing it would come sooner! The main thing is that you should follow your body’s signals and listen to its prompts. Don’t let things slip and keep on top of everything yourself. The campsite is comfortable but not that big so you will have to get close to those neighbors of yours - the multiple “companions-in-arms” who would have already set up camp there by the time of your arrival.

Day 12 Ascent to Camp 3 (6100 m).



Unbelievable - you’re walking above the clouds! A most startling fact… Try to settle in for the night with comfort, if it’s appropriate to mention given the altitude. You need rest however so refresh yourself and restore your reserves of strength expended during the day. It’s just great to not be alone here! Such a large number of like-minded people who can share your delight over the picture perfect surroundings. It doesn’t matter that your shoulders ache and your tongue can hardly move because that’s just part and parcel of your personal Pamir tale. Everything’s going to be fine and with luck you’ll feel well rested and refreshed for the morning! Tomorrow is the most crucial day of the whole expedition so ensure that even if restful sleep doesn’t come easily that you’ve had a much needed respite from the harsh conditions (with breakfast in the morning being a must).

Day 13 Ascent to the summit of the Lenin Peak (7134 m) and Descent to Camp 3 (6100 m).



Early start at 5-6 AM, the summit is waiting for you! From “peremychka” keep on the steep 300m-long stretch that flattens out onto the so called “Nosh” (“knife”- a steep narrow ice ridge) - be extra as careful on this stretch! Carry on along the stony ridge towards the snow plateau (6,900 - 7,000 m) and finally continue on up to the summit.

And there we are - at the top! Woo! The whole of the Pamir lies at your feet!!!!!!

Take a souvenir photo, a 20 to 30 minute break (subject to good weather) and set off downhill along the same path as before towards Camp 3.

A useful tip: in the event of inclement weather don’t take unnecessary risks. A good mountaineer is a mountaineer who stays alive and a plateau at 6,900m can be exceptionally deceptive…Descend as fast as possible!

Day 14 Descent to Camp 1 (4400 m).



Good food in a warm yurt - bliss after such a gruelling ascent. Luckily enough there’s some ready and waiting for you at Camp 1! A successful climb is the perfect excuse for a drink or two with your new found companions tonight. Camp 1 is famous as a venue for all the many mountain folks from different corners of the world meeting together under the same felt roofs - those who have just descended from the top and those who are about to start. Certainly a place difficult to become/remain bored in. The warm yurt is more than conducive to presenting an atmosphere of camaraderie... One may well take the motto hanging from the yurt flap t heart: “YURT - CONNECTION PEOPLE”. There is but one pressing limitation unfortunately - time. The yurt closes at 23:00 PM as the superintendent marches up to send all present back to their tents, although perhaps for the best given many will be facing an all too early tart in the morning.

Day 15 Descent to Base Camp (3600 m).



Upon arrival why not have a vapour bath followed by a traditional special dinner set in the Kyrgyz yurt to celebrate your glorious return to BC. Upon preliminary agreement your dinner could include a very nicely done hunk of lamb. Indulge yourself in oriental exotics! Relax sitting on the traditional Kyrgyz “kurpacha” (mattress) and have a delicious piece of freshly cooked lamb. This is the essence of the international culture of the nomadic peoples and what a culture it is.

Day 16 Reserve day in case of bad weather.

In the case that the weather was fine for you then feel free to use this reserve day for exploring Osh town. Most likely a day to remember!

Day 17 Drive from Base Camp to Osh.



Accommodation in hotel. Feel the charm of an almost forgotten civilisation. Walk around the town at night for a spot of quiet reflection.

Day 18 Departure from Osh.

That’s it. Full stop. All the adventures from the last few potentially harrowing days are over. Tomorrow you won’t have to stress your mind with the detailing of your ascent plan, hectically packing your rucksack or exposing your body to the shrill Pamir winds. Tomorrow your normal routine recommences but even amidst the daily grind there may well appear a new whisper within inevitably pulling your mind back to those events of the past summer. The feeling that tickles the line into your ear: “Hey, let’s head back, we’ve left our friends behind in that nice warm yurt …”.

Following above is our basic program of the ascent. It’s based on long-term experience and a record of successful ascents to the summit of Lenin Peak. By all means you are free to follow your own schedule based on your own understanding of the correct acclimatization for you, however the above is what we recommend.
For persons who would like to visit our Yurt cams just for spending the time according their preferences and without some mountaineering intention then no problem: being alone, or with your friends, or with your sweetheart, or with your family even including your children - you are welcome! You also have unique chance to spend your vacations under foot of Lenin Peak, our special offer for you: "Vacation in the Pamirs" program!

Basic program for ascent to the Lenin Peak 2018:
Day 1 Arrival in Tashkent. Transfer by car: Tashkent - Osh (420km, 7-8 hours).

Early arrival in Tashkent. Meeting at the airport, transfer to Osh.

On your way to Osh, you will be driving across several provinces of Uzbekistan, namely Tashkent Province (up to Kamchik Pass), Namangan Province and Andijan Province (the last two belonging to the overpopulated Fergana Valley). For the first two hours you will be bussing across the Tashkent Province known since early medieval as “Ilak” - the area rich in non-ferrous metals and brown coal. The highway runs amidst fertile fields of cotton, wheat and lucerne (alfalfa) along the Chatkal Range of the Tian Shan Mountain System. 50 km further and the bus turn left. We drive along the Ahangaran River (“The River of iron-work masters”) - witness to the long history of mining and metalworking in the area. On the other side of the river (10km away) is the town Almalyk - industrial hub of the province famous for its gold, copper, silver, zinc, lead, molybdenum and rare earth metal mines as well as the third largest factory in the former Soviet Union. 100km away from Tashkent in the valley of the Akhangaran River the town of Angren lies, known for being the home to Uzbekistan’s largest open-cast brown coal mine. Stretching eastward the Kuraminsky Range becomes visible on the other side of the river, once covered extensively by juniper forests that were logged and produced into in charcoal for use in the thriving metallurgy industry of medieval times. Still in the valley, one can see remains of the old charcoal producing furnaces. Having past the town we stop for panoramic views of the coal mine. Having crossed the river on the bridge we enter Namangan Province. The road zigzags uphill towards Kamchik Pass (2,285m) from where we descend to the Fergana Valley. The road is colloquially known as the “Road of Life” - for its great importance to the economy of Uzbekistan and is in fact, is the only transport artery directly connecting the Fergana Valley to mainland Uzbekistan. Even in the heart of winter the traffic never stops. Two huge tunnels have been recently hewn from the rocky massif to protect the road against avalanches and landslides.

The Fergana Valley is a real pearl of Uzbekistan. 300km long and 120km wide, the Valley is rich in not only population (up to 30% of total Uzbekistan’s population ) but also water sources (Sir-Daria River as well as dozens of canals and smaller water streams), fertile arable lands and important mineral reserves (including, inter alia, oil and gas). It was here that 5-6 thousand years ago ancient farmers were already growing grapes and lucerne - the plant cultures that were later to be cultivated and mastered by the people of the Chinese regions. In ancient times a branch of the Great Silk Route once laid across the Fergana Valley leaving evidence of an extensive international cultural exchange: remains of Zoroastrian, Buddhist and Nestorian Christian temples and monasteries are scattered throughout the valley.

We then cross the Uzbekistan-Kyrgyzstan border. Formalities at Uzbek-Kygyz border usually do not take long and are generally problem free. On the Kyrgyz side of the border our transport is ready awaiting us, promptly transferring us to the scheduled hotel.

Day 2 Drive from Osh to the Base Camp of Lenin Peak (3600 m) on Edelweiss Glade (280km, 5 hours). Accommodation in tents.

There are so many lakes around in Achik-Tash valley’s grassland that it seems like once upon a time, long ago when the Gods of these harsh lands had been in something of a good mood, they ventured to decorate these cheerless areas with something bright and joyful. The divine bowl capsizing high above, the refreshing blue water gushed out spreading from green hills to lowlands, deluging all the carols and cavities of this landscape. You can even swim here now!

Day 11 Ascent to Camp 1 (4400 m).



Along the now well known path get to the Camp meet with its inhabitants and visit the yurt...

It’s extremely cozy here - just like home. When lanterns begin to shine and the darkness of the sky becomes dense and cold, the little world of the C1 converges to the size of micro cosmos, its life continuing to the illuminated island of the moraine deep inside of Lenin glacier… It’s strange to realize that you are, as such a small, defenseless person, at a dizzying distance high in the mountains, amid the mysterious and powerful Pamir... and you’re alright! You can’t get much cooler than that!

Day 12 Ascent to Camp 2 (5300 m).



Upwards again… The way does not seem quite so long as it was the first time around - this is normal and it’s a definite improvement as you’re able to look around and appreciate the scenery. And, at the same time as if by some miracle - your breathing isn’t quite so thrown out of rhythm by that capricious mistress that is altitude! Your shoulders feel the deluge of sun rays - the weather couldn’t be better today! Everyone thinks about the final goal on today’s ascent - most wishing it would come sooner! The main thing is that you should follow your body’s signals and listen to its prompts. Don’t let things slip and keep on top of everything yourself. The campsite is comfortable but not that big so you will have to get close to those neighbors of yours - the multiple “companions-in-arms” who would have already set up camp there by the time of your arrival.

Day 13 Ascent to Camp 3 (6100 m).



Unbelievable - you’re walking above the clouds! A most startling fact… Try to settle in for the night with comfort, if it’s appropriate to mention given the altitude. You need rest however so refresh yourself and restore your reserves of strength expended during the day. It’s just great to not be alone here! Such a large number of like-minded people who can share your delight over the picture perfect surroundings. It doesn’t matter that your shoulders ache and your tongue can hardly move because that’s just part and parcel of your personal Pamir tale. Everything’s going to be fine and with luck you’ll feel well rested and refreshed for the morning! Tomorrow is the most crucial day of the whole expedition so ensure that even if restful sleep doesn’t come easily that you’ve had a much needed respite from the harsh conditions (with breakfast in the morning being a must).

Day 14 Ascent to the summit of the Lenin Peak (7134 m) and Descent to Camp 3 (6100 m).



Early start at 5-6 AM, the summit is waiting for you! From “peremychka” keep on the steep 300m-long stretch that flattens out onto the so called “Nosh” (“knife”- a steep narrow ice ridge) - be extra as careful on this stretch! Carry on along the stony ridge towards the snow plateau (6,900 - 7,000 m) and finally continue on up to the summit.

And there we are - at the top! Woo! The whole of the Pamir lies at your feet!!!!!!

Take a souvenir photo, a 20 to 30 minute break (subject to good weather) and set off downhill along the same path as before towards Camp 3.

A useful tip: in the event of inclement weather don’t take unnecessary risks. A good mountaineer is a mountaineer who stays alive and a plateau at 6,900m can be exceptionally deceptive…Descend as fast as possible!

Day 15 Descent to Camp 1 (4400 m).



Good food in a warm yurt - bliss after such a gruelling ascent. Luckily enough there’s some ready and waiting for you at Camp 1! A successful climb is the perfect excuse for a drink or two with your new found companions tonight. Camp 1 is famous as a venue for all the many mountain folks from different corners of the world meeting together under the same felt roofs - those who have just descended from the top and those who are about to start. Certainly a place difficult to become/remain bored in. The warm yurt is more than conducive to presenting an atmosphere of camaraderie... One may well take the motto hanging from the yurt flap t heart: “YURT - CONNECTION PEOPLE”. There is but one pressing limitation unfortunately - time. The yurt closes at 23:00 PM as the superintendent marches up to send all present back to their tents, although perhaps for the best given many will be facing an all too early tart in the morning.

Day 16 Descent to Base Camp (3600 m).



Upon arrival why not have a vapour bath followed by a traditional special dinner set in the Kyrgyz yurt to celebrate your glorious return to BC. Upon preliminary agreement your dinner could include a very nicely done hunk of lamb. Indulge yourself in oriental exotics! Relax sitting on the traditional Kyrgyz “kurpacha” (mattress) and have a delicious piece of freshly cooked lamb. This is the essence of the international culture of the nomadic peoples and what a culture it is.

Day 17 Reserve day in case of bad weather.

In the case that the weather was fine for you then feel free to use this reserve day for exploring Osh town. Most likely a day to remember!

Day 18 Drive from Base Camp to Osh.



Accommodation in hotel. Feel the charm of an almost forgotten civilisation. Walk around the town at night for a spot of quiet reflection.

Day 19 Transfer from Osh to Tashkent.

Accommodation in hotel. Free time for meandering and souvenir shopping.

Day 20 Departure from Tashkent.

That’s it. Full stop. All the adventures from the last few potentially harrowing days are over. Tomorrow you won’t have to stress your mind with the detailing of your ascent plan, hectically packing your rucksack or exposing your body to the shrill Pamir winds. Tomorrow your normal routine recommences but even amidst the daily grind there may well appear a new whisper within inevitably pulling your mind back to those events of the past summer. The feeling that tickles the line into your ear: “Hey, let’s head back, we’ve left our friends behind in that nice warm yurt …”.

Following above is our basic program of the ascent. It’s based on long-term experience and a record of successful ascents to the summit of Lenin Peak. By all means you are free to follow your own schedule based on your own understanding of the correct acclimatization for you, however the above is what we recommend.
For persons who would like to visit our Yurt cams just for spending the time according their preferences and without some mountaineering intention then no problem: being alone, or with your friends, or with your sweetheart, or with your family even including your children - you are welcome! You also have unique chance to spend your vacations under foot of Lenin Peak, our special offer for you: "Vacation in the Pamirs" program!

Basic program for ascent to the Lenin Peak 2018:
Day 1 Arrival in Bishkek. Airflight Bishkek - Osh.

Meeting at the airport in Bishkek. Airflight Bishkek - Osh.

The flight option is less picturesque than the drive but is significantly faster. Luggage allowance is 15 kg per passenger with an additional 0.7 USD fee for every additional Kilo.

Flying with a local airline to Osh may take up to 1 hour and is very straightforward. You will be met at the Osh Airport and transferred to your hotel in town.

Osh is a very warm, hospitable, compact and rather cosy town perfectly suited for night time strolls. You can get to the Jayma Bazaar by route taxi (“marshrutka”) or simply on foot walking downstream by the Ak-Bura River. Suleiman Too (Solomon Mountain) is a popular tourist attraction with its 16th century Asaf-bin-Burhia Mausoleum, Prophet Solomon Mosque, Rabat Abdullakhan Mosque, 5-6 thousand year old petroghlyphs and historical museum. Strolling along the Kurmanjan Datka Street you inevitably come across dozens of Kyrgyz, Russian and Uzbek cafes and restaurants in town where you can take your pick of the various local delicacies.

Day 2 Early arrival in Osh. Drive from Osh to the Base Camp of Lenin Peak (3600 m) on Edelweiss Glade (280km, 5 hours). Accommodation in tents.



Located in South KyrgyzstanOsh is often referred to as ‘the southern capital’. It is the country’s second largest city. Once you arrive in Osh, you will meet kind and hospitable people and see green busy streets with a lot of cozy cafes.

It will take 5-6 hours to get to Yurt Camp (Base Camp of Lenin Peak) in a comfortable motor vehicle along Pamir Highway (M41 highway). Almost immediately beyond the city the terrain becomes hilly, as if informing us of what we are to expect further on the way. And the further we went, the more grandiose and magnificent everything around us was becoming. After you have moved over Taldyk Mountain Pass (3,600 m), you will see the stunning scene of Alay Valley with the majestic snow-capped Zaalay Range of the Pamirs towering over it. The Alay Valley is characterized by extensive green fields, marmots occasionally running across the road, grazing horses, a bottomless sky and blue mountain chains on the horizon.

Upon arrival at the Base Camp (3,600 m) on Edelweiss Glade you will be accommodated in comfortable base tents equipped with wooden floors and electricity (bedclothes are also provided). More of a hotel-room-sans-conveniences (located just outside) than a tent our participants are often pleasantly surprised.

The «Edelweiss Glade» BC is the largest one at the Achik Tash Tract and is the final point where it’s possible to trust the wheels of your off-road Jeep. Here’s the end of the “easy going” – your transport relies on your feet only from here on out!

Base Camp (3,600 m) is a complex of structures with all that’s necessary for comfortable dwelling: tents, kitchen, vapor bath, a number of toilets, a volleyball playing field, and most importantly a number of warm yurts (heated every day!), which can be used either as a dining-room or potentially a dancing hall!

Day 3 Get acquainted with the area. Prepare yourself for ascent.



Wake up in the morning and get your breath stolen away with a stunning view: snow-clad XIX Party Conference Peak, pointed Pertovskiy Peak and, of course: the inimitable Lenin Peak. Tomorrow you set off to the Camp 1 which is a good point to think over where to leave your extra luggage and how to fill your spare time on the expedition. Your luggage will be perfectly safe in the BC’s luggage office, no need to worry as the Base Camp Superintendent is fully responsible for its integrity.

As for the first day’s free time, our best advice is not to stay idle in the camp all day but rather have a round hike to the Puteshestvennikov (Travelers’ Pass 4,200m) or walk down the valley for closer views of the alpine lakes. This affords the best acclimatization you can get at this stage, something you will be no doubt be thankful for further along the line.

Day 4 Ascent to Camp 1 (4400 m).



The ascent to Puteshestvennikov Pass (4,200 m) on a well-trodden track usually takes 1.5 to 2.5 hours - depending on the physical conditions of the participants. It’s always windy on the pass, which may also be snow-covered. Take a deep breath of air into your lungs as the panoramic view that opens up before you from the “Marmots’ Glade” lying just below the pass is astonishing. Local residents of the glade - marmots - whistling out different tunes dart in and out their holes, heedless of observing visitors.

Descent from the pass is simple and does not take long. Carry on along the track that goes nearly horizontally, keeping in parallel to the left-hand side moraine. Cross a rapid stream and carry on uphill along the path leading to the Lenin Glacier - approximately 2.5 to 3 hours. Crossing the stream can sometimes be difficult because of high, violent water. Further along the body of the Lenin Glacier takes only 30 to 40 minutes. Mind crevasses! Note the bolder with a cross image and walk along the moraine to Camp 1 for 20 to 30 minutes.

Total ascent time is about 3 to 4.5 hours.

Our Camp 1 is set up on the moraine of the Lenin Glacier and truly is most comfortable camp of the area. Three spacious and comfortable yurts provide nice and constant warmth. In 2007’s season we have managed to couple (!) two yurts - an achievement unheard of even by experienced Kyrgyz shepherds!

The yurt is the place you can get a delicious meal, cup of tea or brewed coffee. Listen to music, guitar playing, or use your PC to look through your photos or maybe even organize a party for a special occasion: completion of a successful assent, for instance!

You are accommodated in the same kind of comfortable base tents shared between 2-3 persons.

Day 5 Ascent to Camp 2 (5300 m).



Out we go now to the Camp 1 - straight up and onward! First uphill along the Lenin Glacier to the foot of the grandiose North Face then further up across menacing crevasses on the steep slope, covered in very deep snow (80m-long stretch, gradient 35-40 degrees) using fixed ropes or climbing in a zigzag. Do not forget to stock your backpacks with sufficient amount of water and UV-protection cream (factor 25 and higher)! We then traverse the slope keeping to the right aiming at the plateau colloquially known as “Skovoroda” (Frying Pan). Cross the “Skovoroda” to reach Camp 2 (6 to 7 hours).

If you are a solo climber then you would better off finding a partner or hiring a guide for the day - we would certainly highly recommend this as over the years the snow cover situation on the slope has been changing dramatically, and not to the better.

Day 6 Ascent to Camp 3 (6100 m).



From Camp 2 we ascend along the 25 to 30-degree steep slope to the adjacent ridge (2006’s season marked the path for a number of new big crevasses). Then, we carry on along the lengthy and nearly level slope, traversing it towards the last upward swing before the top of Razdelnaya Peak (6,200m, deep snow). From the top descend to “peremychka” (“saddle”) at 6,100 m. For the last two years the Camp 3 (6,100 m) has been positioned just at the foot of the Razdelnaya Peak.

The ascent normally takes about 5 to 6 hours. In case you feel nausea or suffer from a headache you should have appropriate the first-aid gear with you - you are at 6,100 m above sea level, you know!

Day 7 Descent to Camp 1 (4400 m).



Descent is carried out on the same way and takes less time and effort. You can reach Camp 1 in 4 to 5 hours and there plunge yourself back into the comfort of civilization: Internet, good food and a cup of brewed coffee or a can of fruit juice.

Rest. You’ll be much better off that way for the next day’s descent to the Base Camp (3,600 m) where you can restore your physical strength and replenish your energy. The rule is: the lower the altitude, the faster and better restoration. After all, sleeping at a leafy green spot is far more pleasant.

Day 8 Descent to Base Camp (3600 m).



Oh, “Edelweiss Glade”! Oh, Base Camp! Home sweet home for us after all these days in those cheerless, endless snow fields! Feel free to strip your clothes off and lie down in the grassy glade, breathing in the aromas of the alpine motley grass, bathing in the warming beams of the Asian sun…

Those returning to BC after an ascent often dream of a feeling of CLEANLINESS. The BC administration offers excellent vapor baths available daily in the afternoon.

Day 9 Rest day.



“Edelweiss Glade” is an excellent place for full-body relaxation. Those who’ve had enough of languishing in bed can seek active relaxation as we have a volley-ball net hanged up across the camp site with a ball always primed for use. If only every day was an active rest day! By the way, the volley-ball pitch regularly houses international games that everyone may take part in! Some participants play for specific...’interests’, for instance: a ram against a crate of beer. Fancy a game?

Day 10 Rest day.



Today you have a great opportunity to walk around and explore the picturesque environment, making friends of the local marmots and snapping reams of envy inducing photos for the folks back home. There are so many lakes around in Achik-Tash valley’s grassland that it seems like once upon a time, long ago when the Gods of these harsh lands had been in something of a good mood, they ventured to decorate these cheerless areas with something bright and joyful. The divine bowl capsizing high above, the refreshing blue water gushed out spreading from green hills to lowlands, deluging all the carols and cavities of this landscape. You can even swim here now!

Tomorrow is the most crucial day of the whole expedition so ensure that even if restful sleep doesn’t come easily that you’ve had a much needed respite from the harsh conditions (with breakfast in the morning being a must).

Day 14 Ascent to the summit of the Lenin Peak (7134 m) and Descent to Camp 3 (6100 m).



Early start at 5-6 AM, the summit is waiting for you! From “peremychka” keep on the steep 300m-long stretch that flattens out onto the so called “Nosh” (“knife”- a steep narrow ice ridge) - be extra as careful on this stretch! Carry on along the stony ridge towards the snow plateau (6,900 - 7,000 m) and finally continue on up to the summit.

And there we are - at the top! Woo! The whole of the Pamir lies at your feet!!!!!!

Take a souvenir photo, a 20 to 30 minute break (subject to good weather) and set off downhill along the same path as before towards Camp 3.

A useful tip: in the event of inclement weather don’t take unnecessary risks. A good mountaineer is a mountaineer who stays alive and a plateau at 6,900m can be exceptionally deceptive…Descend as fast as possible!

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:

Australia
Austria
Bahrain
Belgium
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Brunei Darussalam
Canada
Croatia
Czech Republic
Denmark
Estonia
Finland
France
Germany
Greece
Hungary
Iceland
Ireland
Italy

- All the participants of Lenin Peak ascension program, in accordance with the existing rules, are obliged to issue a permit to zone of border control, where the Lenin Peak is located. In order to issue this permit, it is necessary to send us the copy of your passport not later than 1 month before your arrival and point out planned period of your stay in the region of Lenin Peak.

Angela / Pik Lenin 01.09.2015 22:50

The whole trip was very well organized and everything went as planed (Expect the weather on the mountain ;-) Summit on the 31.07.2015
Special thanks to the team in camp 1. They do an excellent job, super friendly service and the food is fantastic.
Our trip to Uzbekistan was an nice finish after the 2 1/2 weeks on the mountain. Also here, everything was very good organized.
A big thank you to everybody involved in our stay.

Aleksandar 20.08.2014 16:07

Thanks for everything, the expedition was successful five members climbed onto the top of Lenin, eight members came out on top Razdelnaja.
We are satisfied with housing, food, and people. (Sauna is a great) :-)
We wish much to commend Nicholas, Olga, Mukadas, are always ready to help ridge whatever we needed.
The real professionals in their job.
Thanks for everything ....
Best regards.

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,

Сергей Лубнин 09.10.2013 21:02

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!

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!
