A mountainous country ideal for trekking, Tajikistan is best visited between July-September when the snows begin to clear leaving high mountain roads and hiking paths more accessible. It is best to avoid winters when temperatures plummet below 0°C and heavy snow may slow down or block road access. Tajikistan is the wettest of the Central Asia nations, with the average annual precipitation around 500-600mm and up to 1,500mm in the mountains.
Adventurous trekkers who brave the Fann Mountains will be thrillingly rewarded with soaring landscapes of layered mountain panoramas and azure alpine lakes. Key Silk Road cities of Tajikistan will also be visited for a dose of cultural insight into this truly off-the-beaten nation.
