Peak Lenin

Osh, Kyrgyzstan

This mountain is one of the highest climbable peaks in Kyrgyzstan. It’s sometimes called ”the easiest 7,000m mountain in the world”. Don’t be fooled by this title though, reaching the summit is far from being easy and will require a lot of preparation and a good level of fitness.

This mountain attracts people from all over the world who are in pursuit of high peaks, challenge, and adrenaline. The peak is located right on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan so getting there will require getting a border permit.

Since Peak Lenin is located on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, getting there requires a border permit. There are a few military checks on the road to the base camp of the mountain and you will be required to show your permit to proceed.

The base camp of Peak Lenin is a cozy little yurt camp located next to a lake called Tulpar lake. Getting there from Osh is possible by taking a mashrutkas and hitchhiking or solely by hitchhiking all the way.
