Pik Lenin

Ascend a 7000+-meter / 22,966+-foot Peak in the Pamir Mountains of Kyrgyzstan

A great intro­duc­tion to climb­ing at ele­va­tions over 7000 meters, Pik Lenin is con­sid­ered one of the most straight­for­ward climbs of its alti­tude and is an excel­lent train­ing peak for Mount Ever­est and the 8000 meter giants of the Himalaya. 

Pik Lenin rests on the bor­der of Kyr­gyzs­tan and Tajik­istan. You’ll begin your adven­ture to the remote peak in the city of Osh, and instant­ly feel that you have trav­eled back in time. Osh is called the cap­i­tal of the south and, with a pop­u­la­tion of just over 250,000 is the old­est and sec­ond largest city in the Kyr­gyzs­tan. The eth­nic influ­ences of Uzbeks, Kyr­gyr, Rus­sians, and Tajiks are present in the lan­guage, archi­tec­ture and cui­sine. As was true 3,000 years ago, Osh is still a cen­ter of trade, con­nect­ing the Silk Road from Chi­na through cen­tral Asia.

Flight Information

The total num­ber of days for your trip includes all trav­el to and from your des­ti­na­tion, with some excep­tions. Dates list­ed on the web­site start with your depar­ture date from the US and include the day you arrive home. 

For this trip you will need to arrive in Bishkek, Kyr­gyzs­tan on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary. You will cross the date line in mid-flight to Asia, thus los­ing a day. If you are trav­el­ing from out­side the US your itin­er­ary may require less time to reach Bishkek, so all that is required is that you arrive on Day 3 of the itin­er­ary, where Moun­tain Mad­ness ser­vices begin. If you arrive ear­ly, we can assist with extra hotel arrange­ments and activ­i­ties. Oth­er­wise, you can arrive at any time on Day 3. You will be met at the air­port by a Moun­tain Mad­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tive and trans­ferred to your hotel.
