Sometimes one lake has many characters – once blue and mysterious, once black and ominous, once a cheerful green, and always different. We will stop on the 6th lake for a picnic and then to go for a hike to the 7th lake. We will drive back to Penjikent closer to the evening.

On our 5th day we will drive to Khujand stopping in Istaravshan town- Called Kir by the Parthians, Cyropol by Alexander the Great and Ura-Tyube by the Russians and Soviets, Istaravshan has a small historical core that is one of the best preserved in Tajikistan. Established over 2500 years ago and once encircled by a 6km wall, this former staging post on the Silk Road has had its share of ill fortunes from the execution of male citizens at the hands of Alexander the Great, the slaughter of innocents by Genghis Khan’s marauding armies and shelling by Russian forces in the 19th century. It still carries something of the spirit of endurance in the present day, with a re-creation of the citadel’s main gate symbolic of the town’s defiance over the odds.
We will visit some historical places such as Shahri Khuhna, Mug – Teppa, Abdullatif Sultan Medressa and some other beautiful places including the spectacular mountains view of the village, taking awesome pictures and enjoying the nature.
