Ascent of Lenin Peak, Central Asia

Site français

Lenin Peak is located right in the heart of the Pamir, a great mountain range in the Eastern Central Asia. Nicknamed Snow Leopard, it is part of a ring of five 7000m summits in the former USSR. Soviet mountaineers who managed to climb all of the five peaks received the highest of honors. Even today, this glorious past is present in all the mountaineers of the former communist empire. We will discover this unknown land, perched amid Kyrgyz steppes, and nomadic cultures of Central Asia.

The ascent of Lenin Peak is a challenge for adventurers who wish to continue to push their limits beyond Aconcagua and for those who dream of the highest peaks of the Himalayas! Less technical and relatively “easy” to climb it has a logical place in this long progression.
