Guaranteed departure dates with experienced mountaineering guide

Pamir is one of the biggest and highest (up to 7495 m-Communism Peak) mountain range at the south of Central Asia. Peak Lenin (7134m), the highest peak of Trans Altai Range and the second highest peak in Pamir, is located in the northern parts of the Pamir Mountains, in Kyrgyzstan. Besides its height, this majestic mountain top, covered by snow and glaciers, is also popular, due to the fact that it actually is the easiest for ascension seven-thousand metres’ peak on the Earth. Nevertheless, this ascent requires experience in altitude, glacier, snow, rescue and camping equipment. The route we pass (Razdelnaya Route) is the most popular one and normally needs no roped climbing.

Highlights:

♦ Peak Lenin (7134m) – considered the easiest peak over 7000m and probably the best background to attack a peak over 8000, afterwards.
♦ Pamir Mountains are located in Central Asia and are formed by the junction of the Tian Shan, Karakorum, Kunlun and Hindu Kush ranges. They are among the world’s highest mountains.
♦ Kyrgyzstan - Landlocked and mountainous, it borders Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west, Tadzhikistan to the southwest and China to the southeast.

Tours of this level demand that you be really in good shape. The paths are not always in the best condition and the marking can be scarce. There are day-treks with big ascents and descents. Changing weather conditions /even in midsummer/ play an important role when trekking/cycling at a very high altitude and may cause changes of the preliminary route. This is to be decided by the mountain guide on the spot. Normally, the treks are 6/8h per day, but some can be longer. Preliminary hiking experience is an advantage, but not necessary if you are really in a good shape. Note that during some of the days, you should personally carry your baggage, which is naturally an additional difficulty. No rock/ice climbing experience is needed.
