From gentle mountain streams flowing through narrow gorges to raging rapids; this lesser explored Central Asian country is determined to take your breath away. With over 90% of the country covered by rugged snow capped mountains it truly is an exotic country and a great place for the Intrepid traveller to explore.
Tajikistan is dominated by two main mountain ranges; the Pamirs and the Fann Mountains. The Pamirs take up almost the entire eastern part of the country with many peaks over 6000 metres. Home to the elusive snow leopard, the ibex and the worlds largest wild sheep, the Marco Polo, itis a tough and harsh environment for wildlife and locals alike to live in.
The Fann Mountains are a much smaller mountain system in the west of Tajikistan and more accessible to get to from the capital Dushanbe.Known for its stunning iridescent lakes, the best known are the Alaudin Lakes, Kuilikon and the beautiful Iskanderkul Lake named after Alexander the Great!
