The highest point of the range is Pobeda Peak ('Jengish Chokusu') at 7,439m which lies on the Kyrgyz/China border, followed by the beautifully triangular Khan Tengri, 6,995m, on the Kyrgyz/Kazakh border.
Khan Tengri is the second-highest mountain in the Tian Shan, surpassed only by Jengish Chokusu. It is also the world's most northern 7,000m mountain, notable because peaks of high latitude have a shorter climbing season, generally more severe weather and thinner air.
Elevation extremes--lowest point: Kulundy village in the Batken province 401 m; highest point: Jengish Chokusu (Pik Pobedy) 7,439 m.
