Lake Alexander (Iskanderkul), Tajikistan

4.7
#1 of 12 in Nature in Tajikistan
Glacial in origin, Lake Alexander (Iskanderkul) offers panoramic vistas from an altitude of 2,195 m (7,201 ft). The turquoise waters contrast wonderfully against its alpine surroundings and provide the perfect photo opportunity. Due to the water's high mineral content, the lake has barely any aquatic life, but the surrounding forest, a designated nature reserve, is home to an abundance of plant and animal life.

    I saw many things in this world, but this Lake, and most importantly what is very close from it struck me to the heart! Travel from Dushanbe to Iskanderkul by car in around 3 hours on a very beautiful places. On the road you will be surrounded by beautiful mountains, raging river, herds of lambs ... In General, the road to Lake is already a point of interest! When I saw the lake itself, just breathless. Blue is calm among the powerful mountains! You can ride a boat, eat at local cafes, and most importantly-you can walk a little further along the path. And to do this it is necessary! What awaited us at the end of the trails became for me at the moment, the strongest impression in your life! Waterfall! 40-meter powerful raging waterfall! This is such a force, such unbridled energy! Without tears of admiration on this watch! Sure!!!! to visit! I am sure, will not remain indifferent. I wish you all a very bright impressions!
