According to legend, Lake Iskanderkul was named after Alexander the Great, known in the East as Iskander. It is said that the route of Alexander the Great to India passes through this lake. After that, you will walk to a 50-meter waterfall, which is compared with Niagara and Fannskaya Niagara (Niagara Fana). There is also a stream of activity to look out for with a boat tour of the lake. The shore of the lake is estimated at 40 km, and the depth is 70 m.
Overnight at lodges close to the lake.
Day 3: Iskanderkul lake - Seven Lakes (180km; 5h)
We continue our journey to the Seven Lakes.
Seven Lakes (Haft-Kul): 7 lacrimal lakes
Seven small lakes are found in Haft-Kul, "lakes", in the northwest of Tajikistan. Legend has it that these are the tears of the daughters of a missing man. Science claims that they occurred after earthquakes occurred that changed the course of the Shing River. Whichever version you prefer, the Haft-Kul road is one of the most accessible routes in Tajikistan; an ideal introduction to the natural beauty of Tajikistan.
To the lakes! Getting to Haft Kul can be as easy or as tiring as you like - you decide how far to go. Apart from the azure lakes, there are many villages to wander around and many other natural landscapes are a pleasure to visit for tea.
Then an easy hike to the last lake Haft Kul (1 hour walk back from the parking lot): Khazor Chashma, a thousand springs. The slope is gentle, the height is low (the lake is about 2400 m / 7870 feet). Today you have enough time to walk along the lake and feel the beauty of Tajik nature, especially the skyscraper mountains.
Overnight at the guest house.
Day 4: Seven lakes - Voru village (170km; 5h)
Breakfast and from here we go to a rather strange place in the country, in the heart of the Fann Mountains! Now everything is about history, nature and people speaking a completely different language and living in a completely unusual way (Stone Age village). This village is located at an altitude of more than 3000 m above sea level. It's called VORU. Also, the village is found among migrants not only from Tajikistan, but also among Central Asians. But so far the village has not been excavated by scientists at the place of residence. The main thing that is appreciated by every visitor is the location of the houses. Voru differs from other villages in its strange and varied traditions and cultures. It seems that this is a high-rise building in the heart of skyscraper mountains. This is one of those villages inhabited by a representative of the Sogdian national religion, a people who were followers of Zoroaster (the prophet called the Zoroastrian religion). Village from the ridges of the Yagnob valley. This is just WOW. Dinner in the family. After visiting the village, we drive towards Ruknobod for an overnight stay. Let's make a master class Oshi Palow when visiting Ruknobod on time.
Overnight stay with family!
Day 5: Voru village - Khujand (230km; 4h)
After breakfast, departure to the city of Khujand.

Overnight at the hotel.
Day 6: Khujand - Khoja Obi Garm sanatorium ( 260km: 5h)
Breakfast and continuation of the way to the sanatorium Khoja Obi Garm. Today, just relax and unwind before leaving Tajikistan.
One of the best places in Central Asia for a real Soviet-style spa holiday. The monstrously large sanatorium Khoja Obi Garm near Dushanbe… is special. Built in 1983 on top of a hot spring on a 2,000-meter mountain, the 7-storey, 700-room complex makes a lasting impression.
Khoja Obi Garm is a great place to relax after long trips or hikes. The atmosphere of a nursing home stuck in the 1970s (Soviet 1970s, that is) with the smell of radon permeating every corridor. A unique feature of the Khodja Obi Garm sanatorium is the hot mineral radioactive waters that come to the surface. This is one of the few resorts in the world where radioactive steam is used as a treatment.
