Jengish Chokusu is the tallest mountain that is part of the Tian Shan mountain system. You may also see it being called Victory Peak or Pobeda Peak.

Why Is It Famous?

Measuring 7,439 meters above sea level, Jengish Chokusu is famous for being the highest mountain of the Tian Shan mountain system. It is also the 7,000-meter mountain that is the furthest north in the world.

What Is Nearby?

Jengish Chokusu sits on the border between China and Kyrgyzstan. In Kyrgyzstan, the closest area is Ak-Suu in the far eastern region of Issyk-Kul. In China, it is closest to Wensu County, Xinjiang. Jengish Chokusu is also in Kakshaal Too, which is southeast of Issyk Kul, a lake, and the highest portion of Tian Shan.

Geological Description

Jengish Chokusu classifies as a massif, featuring multiple summits across its ridge. There is just one main summit, measuring 7,000 meters. The South Engilchek Glacier separates it, serving as the base camp of Jengish Chokusu as well as Khan Tengri. The massif and glaciers run at right angles to each other. The glaciers then run into Kyrgyzstan’s alpine valleys before reaching the Engilchek Glacier.

The South Engilchek Glacier and the related side glaciers take up the full north side of the mountain. This is the world’s sixth-longest glacier that is not in the polar regions, measuring 60.5 kilometers long.

Events In Time

Before 1946 when Jengish Chokusu was surveyed, experts thought that Khan Tengri was the highest in the range. There was an ascent in 1938, which some doubt the validity of since the team said that altitude was 6,900 meters.

In 1955, there was a large-scale peak attempt that resulted in 11 members of the expedition dying in a blizzard. The first fully verified ascent took place in 1956 by the Russians. The Chinese successfully reached the summit the following year.
