Caption: Ismoil Somoni Peak. A mountaineer looking toward Ismoil Somoni Peak, at 7495 metres the highest mountain Tajikistan. Found in the Pamir Mountains, it wasn't until 1928 that it was identified as being higher than Lenin Peak. In 1933 it was officially named Stalin Peak, then in 1962 was renamed to Communism Peak. In 1998 it was changed to its current name to honour Ismoil Somoni, the ancestor of the Samanid dynasty that once ruled the area.
