Find Your Paradise On Earth


On the southern spurs of Hissar mountain range in gorge of the Karatag river three picturesque Paironskii lakes are situated. It is Kuldzhuazak lake – the smallest of three lakes, situated in the gorge of the Saburgon river (left tributary of Karatag river), Timurdara lake – with water of amazing turquoise color surrounded by relict juniper wood, and of course, the biggest of them (about 1 km long) – Pairon lake absorbed in it the reflection of surrounding snow peaks.
These lakes, unfairly disregarded in the shadow of magnificent of Fan lakes, and are rare visited in last years though possess its soft unique beauty. And twenty years ago were visited not less than it is now, for example, Alaudin lakes. And it is much easier to get here.
From here we suggest to start our tour on ancient caravan route which join the Hissar valley heated by the sun with Penjikent and ancient Samarkand. It is necessary to say, that even nowadays this route is actively used by shepherds during seasonal transhumance that keeps mountain trails in a safe condition.
