Description: Challenging 12 day trek in Kyrgyz Pamir mountains from Kyrgyzstan's south capital Osh to Lenin peak base camp with two summits to climb above 5000 metres for trekkers looking for challenging experiences. This trek takes you in some of the most beautiful and remote scenery in South East Kyrgyzstan - forested mountain ranges and snow capped peaks, passes, glaciers and alpine lakes of Pamir mountain range. The tour begins and ends with the opportunity to visit some of Kyrgyzstan's finest cultural and historical treasures.
Route: The route begins with a drive to Kichik Alai valley. Here, porters take over and carry personal luggage and camping gear for the trek through stunning mountain scenery. Since we trek at higher altitudes we care about your acclimatisation phrase and keep first days short and vertical gain reasonable. The trekking route, known as the 'Lenin peak BC', goes through cool juniper groves and passes crystal clear alpine lakes, many tempestuous rivers, high glaciated summits and a wide variety of colorful panoramas with breathtaking landscapes. The alpine meadows are extremely beautiful with a profusion of flowers and lush grass pastures. Several Golden Eagles have their home here along with other colorful bird and wild-life. There will be time at the end of the trek for sightseeing and shopping in Osh bazaar, and we will gather together for a banquet on the final night.
Grade: Steady Extra. The tour is eight days trekking on foot. Paths are generally in good shapes where exist. Peaks and mountain passes are steep but not technically difficult. The trek is porter-assisted, so you will need to carry only a day pack with some of your belongings. Average walking time is around 6-7 hours per day. Daily altitude gain is between 800-1000 m or about. You must be reasonably fit to attempt this trek. Trekking/hiking and camping background advisable but not essential. Light crampons are recommended for summit days.
Trek Crew: The trek is assisted by guide, cook and porters to carry camping gear for the trek.
