The name of Pik Kommunizma is still a very hot debate in Tajikistan. It has become political issue of ethnical importance. Garmo vs. Ismail Somoni (also Ismoil Somoni). The Tajik population wants IS, but many others want Garmo. Most still say Kommunizma because it doesn't imply any ethnical issues, even if K brings back memories not everyone likes. The name battle will go on.

Re: Name


I chose to name it "Pik Ismoil Somoni/Pik Kommunizma" to have both names used equally.
For me Pik Garmo is a seperate peak (once thought to be the same peak as Pik IS/Kommunizma) of 6602 m elevation south of Pik IS/Kommunizma.

What are these peaks?

Have added a photo I took in Pakistan of the peaks I saw immediately north of the Wakhan coridor. No idea of their names. Maybe you know? You can delete the photo from the page if you don't want it! Lee

Re: What are these peaks?

I have no clue of the names of those peaks. The shapes are not familiar either. There are so many peaks around there and somehow I tend to look for the bigger ones and the smaller ones just "drown" amongst the others and are not remembered.

I guess we can find the names of some of them, if we have the accurate position of the place from where you shot the photo.

The photo will stay on the Pamir page. I like it.
