Ascent of Lenin Peak (7439 m)
Situated on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, this peak is one of the highest of the Zaalaisky range and one of the most accessible peaks in the world. This second highest peak of Kyrgyzstan is not a difficult peak to climb, but the weather and the altitude can be your major obstacle to reach the summit.
