Peak Pobeda (Russian: Победа, "Victory") is a mountain in Sakha Republic, Russia. At 3,003 m (9,852 ft) it is the highest peak of the Chersky Range,[2] and the highest mountain in Siberia as well as in the Arctic Polar Circle.

Italian mountaineers Simone Moro and Tamara Lunger were the first to make a winter ascent of Peak Pobeda on February 12, 2018. They reported that the temperature was about -40C at base camp when they made their ascent[3]. It is feared by the nomads living in the mountains, and no one will venture near it.
