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.
