Best Time to Visit Tajikistan
Travel Highlights of Tajikistan
If you go to Tajikistan, you should definitely go to the mountains either – Fann or Pamir Mountains.
Fann Mountains are located not so high as the Pamir Mountains, but in general, more than half of the country lay above 3000 meters above sea level. Fann mountains have more vegetation and the eastern mountains of Pamir are mostly above 4000 meters and has very limited vegetation or grown only with artificial irrigation.
Tajikistan has a continental climate which means summers are hot and winters are cold. With rising altitude, the temperature cools down, thus in Pamirs, at an altitude of above 4000 meters it is much cooler than in Dushanbe which is located at 700 meters above sea level. Dushanbe in summer is very hot and has temperatures above 40 °C. Outside Dushanbe and its surroundings, from June to mid -September the temperature is very pleasant everywhere. Starting from October it can already snow and some roads can be closed. Tajikistan has also Fedchenko glacier, which is the largest glacier outside poles. The coldest place in Tajikistan is Bulunkul and the record cold temperature was -63° C.
