Pik Korzhenevskaya is a great choice for your first 7000m peak and a taste of expedition life.
It is one of the Russian Snow Leopards and the third highest peak in the Pamir after Pik Somoni (formerly Pik Kommunizma) and Pik Lenin, and the fourth highest in the former Soviet Union. It is located just south of the Tajik-Kyrgyz border and involves a 40 minute helicopter ride to BaseCamp
It was first discovered in 1905 by the Geography professor Korzhenevski, who had followed the Muksu River to the south side of the peak. He named the peak after his wife, Evgenia Korzhenevskaya.
The classic Southern ridge route starts from the Moskvina Glade, and is generally regarded as the safest and easiest route to the summit. Camps are placed at 5300m and 6400m from where we tackle the summit via a narrow but not steep ridge. To aid our ascent and the move between camps we will acclimatise on the nearby Peak Vorobyova (5691m) and porters are used to carry group equipment (tents, stoves and fuel).
Pik Korzhenevskaya is one of the five Russian peaks that make up the Snow Leopard Challenge.

This is also a very good test if you are considering 8000m mountains such as Everest.

    Of course.

    This works in our favor as we love our clients and our clients love us.

    Contact us.

  • What about acclimatisation?

    To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and so maximize their chance of success, the expedition takes what I consider to be the best routes.
    -
    Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages on mountains like Everest.
    -
    The atmospheric pressure at the summit is half that at sea level which means you are breathing 50% less oxygen than normal.
    -
    A thorough programme of acclimatization is built into the itinerary, which consists of regulated height gains and rest.
    -
    Your guide, Sean James has summited Everest many times and has a vast knowledge of acclimatisation, altitude warning signs and how to treat cases.

  • Who will be my leader?

    Sean is your western guide for Korzhenevskaya .
    -
    We also have local guides and porters.
    -
    He has lived in Dubai for 12 years and splits his time between here and the Pyrenees.
    He has led 4 expeditions to the summit of Everest and 15 expeditions to mountains over 8000m as well as many around the globe.
    If we employ further western guides they will be qualified and experienced mountain guides or mountaineering instructors.
    We also ensure that all of our local porters have a good track record of mountaineering at high altitudes.
    Whilst qualifications and experience are essential requirements, we also make sure that our porters have the right temperament to lead an expedition comprised of individuals who have a range of previous experience and expectations. To that end, we aim to provide a staff (and clients ) who will make the expedition both successful and enjoyable throughout.

  • Can we make the schedule shorter?

    Of course there are shorter schedules but to give everyone the maximum chance of success we are following this itinerary.
    -
    If you want a 1:1 or personal experience such as trail running to the summit, please contact us direct.

  • What equipment do I need?

    When you sign up we arrange a personal meeting and go through everything that you will need.
    Our connections with retailers will give you a discount and ensure you look good and are safe.
    • Walking poles
    • 3 or 4 season sleeping bag if you like to be warm
    • Day rucksack & Duffel kit pack
    • Duvet jacket
    • Warm walking boots and high altitude boots such as La Sportiva Spantiks
    • Crampons
    • Ice Axe
    • Harness, prussiks
    • Wash kit
    • Duvet jacket
    • Water proof outer clothes
    • High altitude Cat 4 Glasses
    We can provide assistance with obtaining equipment not normally stocked by retail outlets. Some items of equipment are available for hire from us but, for this expedition, we strongly recommend that you purchase your own personal equipment and test it before departure.
    -
    We will also check any equipment you have before you depart and at the hotel.

  • Is it safe?

    Climbing and mountaineering are inherently dangerous sports and should be performed only with the proper instruction and supervision of an experienced guide.
    We work on the premise that the inherent risks of outdoor activities and mountain climbing can be in part identified and mitigated by information, training, interesting gear and knowledge gained in part, through the experiences of others.


    Although many people have now climbed Kilimanjaro, the mountain and its potential dangers are undiminished.
    -
    The aim of our expedition will be to get as many team members as possible to the summit. However, this will not be to the detriment of safety. Safety will govern all decision making on the mountain and will be based on the sound mountaineering judgement of our highly experienced expedition leader.

  • Can I meet you before I sign up?

    Please do and infact we would prefer to meet in person before you sign up with us.

  • What level of experience do I need?

    Korzhenevskaya is a great first introduction to higher altitudes and mountaineering or a second step after Kilimanjaro and similar to Aconcagua.
    -
    No prior climbing or technical experience is needed, however a good level of fitness is required.
    -
    However once you sign up we expect you to take regular exercise and treks in the build up.
    -
    This not only helps you but gives the team deeper strength.
    -
    Korzhenevskaya is a fantastic experience and and as a first taste of altitude unparalled.
