    If you just want to relax in a café, surrounded by mountains-lots of cafés along the road. Many of the pool. If you want to walk in the mountains, just turn off the road you can find hiking trails, on which the shepherds go, and be surrounded by mountains, rivers, of great beauty. A completely different world. Varzob Gorge I believe place a must to visit in Dushanbe. The best course is to drive there in late spring-summer. Or not the late autumn. There really is beautiful at any time of the year.

    If you are staying in Dushanbe have tons of free time, but wants to escape to nature, go here. Picturesque Gorge, turbulent rivers, snow-capped peaks. Beauty!

    Only the strongest rains ended. The river simply jumps out of the banks, is flowing very dirty and violent. Many coastal tents flooded. Very nice all this looks.

Where to stay in Dushanbe

By national capital standards, Dushanbe offers slim pickings in terms of accommodations. A small cluster around Khusravi Dekhlavi Street in the heart of the city includes a handful of Western chain hotels, while a smattering of smaller, more budget-friendly options can be found in the streets surrounding Rudaki Park. The youth hostel culture has yet to take off in Dushanbe, with only limited options catering to the backpacker crowd.
