The foothills, ridges and small mountains at the base of Mount Khojamaston are easily accessible from the city of Sarband, with some trails within short walking distance of the city centre.
This area was a common filming location for old Soviet action-adventure films, and even for at least one Bollywood production. There are endless options for exploring, hiking, climbing and picnicking.
When is the best time for hiking?
Short answer: we don’t suggest going for a hike in the middle of the day in July or August. It will be too hot. The rest of the year should be fine, minus extreme weather events (a rare heavy winter snowfall or an unusual early summer heatwave).
Directions: full directions and guide map coming soon. For now, it’s easy enough to just show up in Sarband and to walk or drive towards the easily visible hills.
