The Fann Mountains is the name of a mountain massif, which forms part of the Pamir-Alai and is situated in the very heart of Central Asia, 200 km to the East from Samarkand.
|Map of the region with the Fans|
The Fann Mountains boast more than ten peaks with the height of over 5000 meters. Beautiful Mt. Chimtarga (5487m asl) is the highest peak in the area.
The banks of numerous crystal-clear lakes are overgrown with the forest of relic archa-tree, which can be found only here. The trunks of the archa-tree wound into a spiral by severe winter winds, produce an unforgettable impression by their fancy forms.
