Border Permits

The famous Pobeda Peak(Victory Peak), Khan-Tengri and Lenin Peak, as well as some other popular mountaineering areas (Western Kokshal-Too, Torugart-Too and others) are located in border zones where access is allowed with a border permit only.

Paper work takes 4-5 weeks, and full prepayment is required in advance. The urgent preparation of boder permits is not possible so please plan your trip well in advance and accordingly.

The following documents and information are necessary for a border permit:

  • Scanned copy of passport
  • Order form for border permit 

In most cases your border permit should be collected from our office in Bishkek (during business hours). If required delivery is available for a surcharge. Clients who book Lenin Peak expeditions can also get their permits either in Osh or at Lenin Peak Base Camp. Again, please plan well in advance and accordingly.
