Perhaps it’s not the first location that comes to your mind when you want to head out traveling, but why not? Its absolutely beautiful scenery will take your breath away. It’s worth the trip out to Dunshabe, the capital. Tajikistan is the smallest country in Central Asia, surrounded by Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, and China. It boasts of spectacular landscape: valleys, lakes, and high snow-capped mountains. The Fann mountain range is the most well-known in the area. Therefore, there are lot of nature activities that can be done there. There is not only skiing, of course, but there is also mountain climbing, trekking, and 4×4 driving!
The mountain peaks reach u to 5000 m. Areas to start climbing are near to the capital city, so it won’t be too difficult to locate places to go. But, it would be wise to do some research beforehand and perhaps even book a group tour or a tour guide in order to get the best and most fulfilling experience. The good snow season is between January and mid-May, but during March and April are the most hazardous times to ski because there is a higher likelihood for avalanches to occur. When the snow first falls, it can be between 2 and 4 m high, and it is a nice, fluffy snow, perfect for skiing! As the months go on, the snow becomes a bit harder with a thin layer of ice forming over top. Plan your trip accordingly, so that you can be there in the months of the best snow and the least danger!
An option for a good skiing place in Tajikistan is Takob Ski Area. It isn’t too far from the capital, so good accommodation can be found nearby. This is the place where touring skiers can make their ascent up up up into the still and practically untouched wilderness of the Fann mountain range. It would be smart to travel in a group to get the best guidance on the hiking as well as 4×4 drivers that you can take you to the proper ascension point. Not only is it a beautiful sight to see as you stand on top of the mountains, but it’s also incredibly peaceful. For those looking to escape the busyness and hectic chaos of our current lives, then this could be the place for you. Enjoy the peace and calm as you stare out across the landscape from almost 5000 m up! For experienced skiers and even for newbies, this could be the place for you. Put Tajikistan on your list for your next skiing holiday.
