Lenin Peak is one of the three easiest seven-thousands on the planet, but it is noticeably more famous and more accessible than the other two. Climbing Lenin Peak is popular in Russia and abroad, as it is included in the Snow Leopard program, along with Khan-Tengri Peak, Pobeda Peak, Korzhenevskaya Peak and Communism Peak. Lenin Peak is considered to be a good step on the way to easy eight-thousanders.

About the tour.

Climbing Lenin Peak is not technically difficult, except for a few crevasses on the route between the camps at 4400m and 5400m, which have to be crossed in roped parties. For this reason, Lenin Peak is considered the easiest and most accessible of the world’s 7000m peaks. However, this doesn’t mean that you should neglect proper preparation or overestimate yourself.

The main difference between climbing Lenin Peak and climbing lower peaks is the longer duration of the expedition, the accumulated psychological exhaustion and the drop in motivation. We will do everything we can to help you avoid these conditions by organising a comfortable base camp and providing varied and plentiful food. Our guides are professional climbers (not just words) with numerous ascents of 8000m peaks and years of experience in climbing and leading guided groups. They look after the welfare of all members of the group and will do everything possible to help you reach your goal, whilst maintaining a high level of safety. We don’t cut corners for our clients!

Previous experience of living above 5000m is an advantage.
