Fan Mountain Trek

Wilderness Trekking in Tajikistan | 14 days

The Fan Mountains form part of the Pamir Range tucked away in north-west Tajikistan and include some of the highest mountains outside the Himalaya. This beautiful wilderness renowned for its high summer pasture is a haven for the amateur botanist and ornithologist and offers spectacular vistas of flower-strewn meadows, turquoise lakes and snow-melt rivers. Like many remote areas in Central Asia with an ancient tradition of warm hospitality, it is not unlikely that you will be invited into the homes of nomads or herders and gain a rare insight into lives that have changed little in centuries.
