on Gusgarf Waterfall

8 months ago

This is a difficult hike near Dushanbe. You can take a mashtruka from Tsementzavod to the turnoff to Gusgarf and walk a couple miles through the village up the road until you reach the turnoff for the trail. You can also hire a driver to take you through those couple miles to the trailhead--most taxis know the spot. The hike leads through houses/dachas for the first mile or so, then winds through a beautiful forest stream, then heads STRAIGHT up Pioneersky Pass for a beautiful view. It's a scramble. Head down the other side and cross the river and hike for another 1/2 mile or so downstream. You'll hit a shallow gorge/streambed filled with red rocks--even though it seems a little treacherous, turn left here and go DOWN. Once you've made your way through some slippery rocks and trees, you'll find the waterfall hidden behind some rocks. It's very tall and very beautiful. Can be accessed in other seasons, but best in the spring--apparently it goes down to a trickle in the summer and fall.

on Seven Bridges Hike

Wed Nov 14 2018

This is a long popular easy to access trail leading out of Varzob. It crosses seven bridges back and forth over the river -- the final bridge is now just a clump of rocks. You can catch a mashrutka to Varzob and in the center of town, go right and follow the road for about a mile until it turns into a trail. The first bridge will lead you left over the river. Many beautiful views and very peaceful. Child friendly.
