Climbing Lenin Peak 7134 m.
Today Lenin Peak (7134 m) is one of the most famous and most frequently visited seven thousand meters of the Pamir. Despite the fact that the classic route is technically simple, climbing to Lenin Peak belongs to the class of high-altitude mountaineering and requires good physical health from climbers, appropriate equipment and a sound approach to acclimatization. The financial accessibility of Lenin Peak is explained by the fact that a helicopter is not required to enter the Base Camp, rather a regular vehicle. The beginning of the journey to the Base Camp is the city of Osh, where you can get an air flight or come to Osh from Bishkek or Tashkent.
You need to go because:
Lenin peak is one of the most accessible peaks of the world over 7000 m, both financially and technically
