Penjikent and Seven Lakes Tour is your ticket to wander windswept ruins, picnic in the mountains near seven pearly lakes and get a taste of life in small-town Tajikistan. Conveniently arranged to start and end at the doorstep of your Samarkand hotel, this 2-day tour is packed with the best that Tajikistan’s western border has to offer – ancient and modern Penjikent (Panjakent), Sarazm and Seven Lakes.
Tajikistan’s Penjikent city is believed to be one of the oldest continually inhabited cities on earth, while the deserted foundations of nearby Sarazm lay claim to the title of one of the oldest establishments in the world. As if these prizes of antiquity weren’t enough to attract visitors to this finger of Tajikistan, the nearby Seven Lakes in the Fann Mountains have achieved in natural beauty what Penjikent and Sarazm accomplished in historic significance.
Note: Due to weather conditions, this tour is available only from April-October.
