Pamir Expeditions provides all kind of services for organization of expedition to Lenin Peak. Services in Base Camp of Lenin Peak and Camp 1.
The Lenin Peak (7,134 m) today is one of the most popular, easy of access and because of that most frequented peaks among 7,000m-odd summits of 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. To the certain extent that s true but not in all. One should remember that the altitude over 7,000m makes the peak an object of high-altitude climbing. The route in itself is not a technically difficult one and normally is 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 pressing altitude. In order to succeed, a climber has to be of good physical conditions, have appropriate climbing gear and, of course, good acclimatization. Traditionally, expeditions access the Base Camp (BC) either from Tashkent (Uzbekistan) or Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan). But in case of a complex expedition aiming at more than one summit, for example: Muztag-Ata Peak + Lenin Peak, - it becomes expedient to access the BC from China driving down to the Alay Valley via Irkeshtam Pass.
