Peak Korzhenevskaya

Rated 4.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)

Altitude 7105m, Grade 3C

Peak Korzhenevskaya is  a great choice for your first 7000m peak and one of the Russian Snow Leopard.


100% Expedition Success all 3 of our previous expeditions to climb Peak Korzhenevskaya have been successful and whilst it is a little more technical we have found it to be less physically demanding than Peak Lenin which has an exceptionally long summit day.

Peak Korzhenevskaya can be climbed in conjunction with an ascent of Ismoil Somoni Peak 7495m (Peak Communism), using Korzhenevskaya to prepare for its higher and more difficult neighbour. The classic Southern ridge route starts from the Moskvina Glade, reached by helicopter 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)

Peak Korzhenevskaya is one of the five Russian peaks that make up the Snow Leopard Challenge

  1. Rated 4 out of 5

    Andrew (verified owner)

    A well planned expedition among the stunning peaks of Tajikistan, with plenty of time in the schedule for acclimatisation and several spare summit days. Base camp is austere but busy. Route presents a wide variety of terrain, from boulders and scree to glacier crossings, steep snow slopes and short sections of steep rock, long snow covered ridges and wide snow fields, most with fantastic views of the surrounding peaks (weather permitting).

  2. Rated 4 out of 5


    Nothing wrong about Adventure Peaks! Super professional and I felt in good hands all the way through. Stu, you were fantastic! If there was an option to sort trips by expedition leader on the website, I would sort by your name!…Andrei, the Russian guide, I cannot thank that guy enough. He was amazing…just outstanding. A machine. If I were to be rescued from anywhere in the world, I would feel safe the moment I saw Andrei step out of the helicopter. Please, make sure to use him on more trips!
