Of the four peaks in
the former Soviet Union which are over 7000m high three
lie in the Pamir Highlands of Central Asia. The same Pamir
itself refers to the great valleys that divide the various
mountain chains. Peak Lenin, at 7134m, is the third highest;
the second highest, Pik Pobeda, lies nearby in Tien Shan.
Peak Lenin is located in the northernmost of the High Pamir
mountain chains - the Zaalayski Range. From the summit looking
south-west the other major ranges dominate the skyline.
On a clear day it is possible to see the summit of Peak
Communism 80 miles away, at 7495m. the highest summit in
the Pamir, and occasionally the Hindu Kush mountains some
140 miles away. Looking north one sees the great Kyzylsu
(Red River) Valley, to the east the Chinese Pamir. Peak
Lenin is a popular mountain, it is often considered to be
the easiest 7000m. summit in the world for climbers since
it is relatively accessible and technically straight forward.
