Description

Razdelnaya peak is altitude 6148 meters is located on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in Pamir Mountains, Chon-Alai Range. The nearest peaks are Lenin Peak (7134 m) and Dzerzhinsky peak (6713 m).

The route of ascent is the same as the route to Lenin Peak. The Camp 3 on the Lenin peak route is located close to the top of Razdelnaya peak.

The route does not contain complex ice or rocky areas. But nevertheless, you need to take time for physical training and get initial technical skills before climbing.

The program starts from Osh - a city with noisy eastern bazaars, green streets and hospitable locals. From the Osh city to the Base Camp takes 4-5 hours by car. The road is mostly good asphalt, only the final 40 km pass along the dirt road.

We suggest that you use the services of our camps under the Lenin Peak. Here you will find spacious tents, delicious varied food, shower and sauna. Our experienced staff will assist you in planning acclimatization campaigns and ascents. We provide a full range of assistance services for climbing - experienced professional guides, tireless high-altitude porters, training in mountaineering and advice on routes, also equipment rental.

The Lenin Peak base camp is located in the Achik-Tash area at an altitude of 3600 meters. This place is ideal for acclimatization and rest before climbing. Small lakes, hiding between green hills, a powerful river flowing at the bottom of the gorge and steep ridges overlooking the snow-capped peaks - everything will leave only pleasant memories in your life.

Accommodation in the Base Camp as well as in the First Camp is offered in double tents. The dining room is made in the Kyrgyz national dwelling – yurt and equipped with everything you need: tables and benches, electricity for charging your equipment (220V 50Hz) and lighting in the evening. Here you can deservedly appreciate the professionalism of our chefs and enjoy the dishes of local and European cuisine. There is a bar with drinks. Water for cooking and drinking is taken from natural springs, but we recommend boil water or take mineral water in bottles.

The first camp is located 12 km from the base camp, at an altitude of 4400 meters. You go on a good trail crossing the Travelers Pass (4100 m), the hiking takes 5-7 hours. The organization of life here is like the Base Camp, just no greenery here. The place for the camp is a stony moraine; we use wooden pallets under all tents and a big tent for the dining room. Daily delivery of fresh products is perfectly arranged and varied, tasty and satisfying menu will pleasantly surprise you.
