Trek in the Fann Mountains
The Fann Mountains are a hidden gem of Central Asia. A true paradise for wilderness trekking enthusiasts, this is the most remote trekking destination in the country. Most of the treks in the region require an overnight stay. Other than the trekking itself, camping in this mountain is one of the most unique experiences you can have. For the remoteness of this site, it is highly recommended for visitors to hire a guide if they are not experienced hikers. The local guide can show you the best routes as well as advise you about how to cook in the wild and help set up the tents.
The treks in this region can go from a simple two days and one night to a ten-days immersive adventure. Planning your trip to the mountains is pretty simple as the area is well served with touristic information and the treks have been mapped online. One aspect that you should consider before booking your trip is the weather. The region is susceptive to extreme weather conditions and natural disasters. The best time of the year to embarque in this adventure is June to September. Other times of the year rain and snow might complicate the visit.
It is very important to keep in mind that if you decide to hike on your own, you will be fully responsible for packing your own equipment including water purifiers, portable stove for cooking, tents, trekking poles, food and any other necessary equipment. Accommodation on the mountain is scarce, in a few small towns you may be able to find a simple homestay, but for most of the time camping is required. Some visitors hire donkeys to carry luggage on the mountains. For nature lovers this is a once in a lifetime experience where you will be in surrounded by grass, lakes, rivers and mountains. Find peace in the simplicity of this beautiful untouched environment.
