The peak is located in the Issyk Kul region of Kyrgyzstan. In the course of a tour in Kyrgyzstan you will find out that it is the border with China at the altitude of 7439m above sea level. The name of the peak from the Chinese side is Tomur peak.
It is known that Semyenov made tours in Kyrgyzstan and investigated mountains of the country. He mistook the peak Pobeda with the peak Khan Tengri due to pyramid shape. The peak located in Kyrgyzstan had different names in different periods of time. The victory in WW2 gave it a new name - Pobeda.
There had been made attempts of vaulting the top of it. In 1938 the Soviet team made a tour in Kyrgyzstan of those times. In 1955 two teams tried to vault it - all members were not only from Kyrgyzstan: one from Kazakhstan, from the Chon tern Pass, the other, from Uzbekistan, along the Zvezdochka glacier. The Kazakh team didn't vault the top and returned at the altitude of 6000m - this was caused by worsening of conditions of mountains of Kyrgyzstan and 12 people survived.
