More Info

The Fann Mountains and Iskanderkul are located north of the capital Dushanbe, which is the main point of entry for flights into the country. From there, transferring to different parts of Tajikistan can be difficult, so arranging transportation ahead of time is important. At times, access to to Korzhenevskaya is restricted to helicopter.

The population is relatively low, and migratory birds are a common sight at the lakes throughout the country. Most regions are elevated, with the Fergana Valley and Dushanbe’s Kofarnihon Valley as the country’s only important geographical locations under 3,000 meters. The highest peak of the Pamir is in China, though most of the well known summits are in Tajikistan along its border with Kyrgyzstan.
