DESCRIPTION

The Fann Mountains boast about one hundred beautiful peaks, some of which rise to an altitude of more than 5000 meters, reaching the highest point on the top of Chimtarga (5489 m). You will pass through one of the highest passes - Chimtarga Pass (4750 m) to admire the beautiful valley with its narrow canyons, incredible landscapes and the beautiful Grand Allo Lake. To see this beauty, not many tourists can access this pass... but you will have a good chance together with our experienced mountain guides to get to them. In fact, during your trekking, you will be delighted by the beauty of a variety of colorful landscapes, turbulent rivers, the highest glacial peaks, picturesque valleys and thousands of lakes, stretching among juniper forests.

Fan is a mountain region most attractive in Central Asia. Europeans have always been fascinated by the East. Returning from long wanderings, travelers who traveled to the East for spices, textiles or precious stones, recalled not only sandstorms, unbearably scorching sun or nomad raids, but also the culture of everyday life, striking in its elegance. So welcome to Central Asia!
