Iskanderkul Cottages

Perched on the shores of vivid blue Iskanderkul Lake, Iskanderkul Cottages are a collection of simple cabins with views of the pristine waters and the surrounding Hissar mountains.

Iskanderkul, Tajikistan
Iskanderkul Cottages
  • Basic wooden cabins in an incredible location on the shores of remote Iskanderkul Lake

  • The only option for spending a night amongst the beauty of the Hissar mountains

  • Fantastic location for hiking amongst the valleys and mountain passes, and around the shores of the vivid blue lake

The remote location of the spectacular Iskanderkul Lake, named after the great Macedonian conqueror, Alexander the Great, allows you to truly get off the beaten track and reinforces the feeling of adventure. However, as with any remote and scenic location, it does mean that infrastructure and accommodation is basic. Iskanderkul Cottages are a collection of wooden chalets situated right on the shores of the lake, with a communal dining hall and warm showers. Facilities are basic, with running water and flushing toilets, but this is the best option here by Iskanderkul and offers an incredible, unique experience to explore this secluded corner of western Tajikistan.
