Ismoil Somoni (aka Peak Communism) is the highest mountain in Tajikistan and a cherished dream of any mountaineer being one of the most beautiful and interesting 7000m peak climbs in the world. A mountain that has seen many names: in 1933 Stalin Peak, in 1962 Communism Peak and in 1998 Ismoil Somoni after the ancestor of the Samanid dynasty. The ascent starts from a base camp Moskvina Glade (4200m) which can only logically be approached by helicopter. Many climbers attempt Vorobeva peak (5691 m) or Chetyreh peak (6299 m) as part of their acclimatization. Four further camps are placed to reach the impressive small rocky summit with its spectacular panoramic views across the whole Pamirs and into China.
