LENIN PEAK EXPEDITION
(22-day variant Bishkek - Bishkek, Normal Route from North via Razdelnaya Peak)

Lenin Peak (7134 m) is the second highest mountain of the Pamirs and the former Soviet Union. This huge snow-ice massif is located in the middle of the Zaalayskiy Range on the border of Tadjikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

The easiest and extremely popular climbing route is from the north, via Razdelnaya Peak (6148 m) and along the West Ridge. This route has no serious technical difficulties but is very long and hard enough because of the high altitude, extremely variable weather conditions and the very real danger of slides and avalanches.
