As the history of names of the peak concerns, it is a little bit complicating process. When
Pyotr Semyonov made tours in Kyrgyzstan he mistook the Peak Pobeda with the Peak Khan Tengri. They seem to be of similar shapes - pyramid. And both mountains were named Khan Tengri during different periods of time. During tours in Kyrgyzstan cars for rent guests of the country will be told historical notes of the mountain - in 1946 in honor of the Victory in WW2 it was named as Pobeda (victory).
There had been made abundance of tries to mount the top of the peak during tours in Kyrgyzstan rent cars by different mountaineers. In 1938 Soviet team mounted the top, in 1955 two teams from Kazakhstan - the Chon tern Pass and Uzbekistan conquered the peak. But they were met by deteriorating weather circumstances that made them to go back from 6000m. This tour in mountains of Kyrgyzstan led to 12 people survived and some of them found accidently.
