Tajikistan is a country in Central Asia surrounded by Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for rugged mountains, popular for hiking and climbing. The Fann Mountains, near the national capital Dushanbe, have snow-capped peaks that rise over 5,000 meters. The range encompasses the Iskanderkulsky Nature Refuge, a notable bird habitat named for Iskanderkul, a turquoise lake formed by glaciers.

The Atlandis Top 3 'Things to Do'
One Day Tour to ISKANDARKUL - Live Legend
The name of the mountain Lake Iskanderkul expires on behalf of Alexander the great, who in Tajikistan and Central Asia, Iran and Afghanistan (in the East) is called Iskandari Zulkarnain (Iskander two-horned). The word "Kul" (from the Tajik language – Kul) means "lake", so the name "Iskandarkul" or "Iskanderkul" comes from these two separate words Ikandar+Kul. The validity of this definition is historical; when Alexander the great conquered the communities to come to Central Asia, he passed through this mountain lake and stayed there for a while, then from Central Asia to India.
Dushanbe Day Tour
ONE-DAY TOURS INTO TAJIKISTAN - for person who value the time, save the money and have a wish for receiving more benefit in short time; who beside with the base business has purpose to receive more knowledge about Tajikistan, Tajik Nation, its cultural, historic values and modern achievements, in addition to enjoy and have spiritual wealth from Tajik hospitality. Dushanbe is the capital of the Republic of Tajikistan, the biggest science, cultural, policy, industrial and administrative center of the country.
Jeep adventure through the Pamir Highway
The most popular of all the jeep routes in Tajikistan is the Pamir Highway M41, equally be loved of cyclists (at least on the downhill stretches). Highlights of the road, which demands ten days of your time to see it in full, include the cosmopolitan town of Khorog with its suspension bridges, Afghan market, botanical garden and parks; ruby mines and naturally hot spring baths; groves of fruit trees amidst a patchwork of irrigated fields; and the stark and isolated, yet unforgettably beautiful, Murghab Plateau, where only nomads roam. The Pamir Highway grants visitors access to the Tajkistan National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the wildlife and ancient archaeological remains of the Wakhan Corridor, and ultimately to neighbouring Kyrgyzstan and Afghanistan. In a single day you can wind your way through high-altitude deserts, empty plains, and lush green meadows, frequently scattered with wildflowers.
