Central Asia's Snow Leopard Peaks

One of the most coveted accolades in mountaineering is the Snow Leopard Award, which is given to intrepid climbers who scale the five mountains in Central Asia that are more than 7,000 meters high. Only around 600 mountaineers have managed the feat of climbing all of these peaks, which are located in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

Three of the Snow Leopard peaks are located in Tajikistan's Pamir Mountains.
