Khatlon - bear hunt and Tajik Sheep
The hunting region is located 320-350 km from Dushanbe. It is a 7-8 hour drive. The average hunting area
elevation is 1,600-1,700 meters. Hunters stay in tent camps with maximum comfort available in the field.
Hunting takes place at the boar stamping ground in early autumn under broom trees; if later - under apple,
pear or cherry trees, and in the wheat or pea fields. Very often an ambush takes place near local villages and
residential area, sometimes in a backyard. The animals simply terrorize local people, very often completely destroying the crops, thus causing a great material loss to communities.
Hunting Tajik Sheep takes place in the mountains of "Pianj Kara-Tau" situated 250 km south of Dushanbe
near the Tajik-Afghan boarder. It is a 200 km drive on a good road and 50 km on a side track. Hunting takes
place at the elevation of 600-700 meters above sea level. Hunting always happens in autumn and/or in winter.

Pariyon and Temurdara Lakes - Hissar Mountains
The beauty of the Lakes, their amazingly clear water and the surrounding landscape turned them into a living
legend. The water of the Lakes has a wonderful ability to calm down body and soul, make a person vigorous
and cheerful. It has been many years already since calmness and quietness of the Lakes turned them into a
popular site of family recreation: walks in the area and swimming in the lakes are considered the best way to
remove any concerns from one' s mind. Ecologically pure food (honey, diary products, fruit and vegetables) in
a combination with clean air, clear water and active rest will provide tourists with energy for a long time.
The lakes have always been surrounded by many rumors and legends. Twenty five years ago an expedition was organized to the area looking for traces of a Yeti.
