Lenin Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.623m (11,886ft) above the sea level, located in Gorno-Badakhshan (GBAO) on the border of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
Located within the Trans-Alay Range of Central Asia, the road to the summit is gravel. It’s very rough. Only 4x4 vehicles. The road is impassable after rains. If you dare to take the risk and travel along this dusty and bumpy route, then make sure to be driven by someone who has experience of the road.
The summit, also known as Ibn Sina (Avicenna) Peak, is infamous for its bad and unpredictable weather. Road conditions can in places be pretty rough. The climb is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness. Most people feel altitude sickness at around 2,500-2,800 meters. Near the pass, oxygen is in short supply.
