EXPERIENCE

Not far from the city of Dushanbe, in the right gorge of the Varzob River, falls Gusgarf waterfall, the most beautiful in the Hissar Range. A stormy river has cut through a vertical rocky wall for many centuries and falls from a 30-meter height. A multi-ton mass of water crumbles below into myriads of drops, iridescent and sparkling in the sun. The trekking mountain trail (ascent) to the waterfall starts 21 kilometers from the Varzob Gorge, from here it takes 2-3 hours to walk to the waterfall (about 8 km).

Thrill-seekers can test themselves in unusual water procedures. This is a rather deep round bath filled with ice water, the smallest mist from a waterfall, and a powerful jet that can knock you off your feet.

A visit to the waterfall is available from April to September. The ascent to the waterfall is quite steep, but quite accessible and affordable for people in average physical condition. In early spring, nature simply amazes with its beauty, lush grass, and flowering trees.
