Pobeda Peak is the highest mountain peak in Kyrgyzstan. It is located in the mountains of the Tien Shan mountain range to the east of Issyk-Kul lake, closer to the Kyrgyz-Chinese border. Pobeda Peak, like Lenin Peak, was among the top five seven thousand meters high peaks of the former USSR. Its height is 7439 meters above sea level. The summit was not conquered until 1956. 

The height of Lenin Peak is 7134 meters above sea level. The mountain peak is located on Chon-Alai Range, located between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. For the first time Lenin Peak was conquered in 1928. 

Khan-Tengri Peak or known in circles of climbers, as "Lord of the Sky" is located on Tengri-Tag ridge, located on the border of Kazakhstan, China and Kyrgyzstan. Its height is 7010 meters above sea level.

The peak of Military Topographers, 6873 meters high above sea level, is located in the Central Tien Shan on the Muztag massif.
