Ismoil Somoni Peak Expedition Overview

The highest peak in Pamir and the former USSR is Ismoil Somoni Peak. Evgeny Abalakov made the first ascent to the summit in 1933 while participating in the Tajik-Pamir expedition of the USSR Academy of Sciences from a glacier Camp. The climb to the mountain requires extreme fitness, knowledge of technical climbing techniques, and familiarity with ice climbing. A lot of side peak climbing is necessary for acclimatization training.

The Pamir region’s northern-western region is home to Ismoil Somoni peak. Stalin Peak was its earlier name until 1962 when it got the rename as Communism Peak. A Soviet-German scientific expedition found the peak in 1928. The mountain got the new name of Ismail Somoni peak in 1999, when Tajikistan gained independence. This name was in honor of Ismail Samani of the Samanid Dynasty.
