The grass beach on the Sarband Reservoir is great location for a picnic and a short swim (the water is quite cool).
Aside from swimming, you can walk along the edge of the lake below some scenic cliffs.
It is possible to find a way around the cliff and hike to the top of the nearby hills for a scenic view.
At certain times the water rises in the reservoir, and part of the grass beach is submerged:
If you see a man in a motorboat, wave at him and offer to pay for a ride. For 20 Somoni he took a group for an extended ride…
It is quite easy to find the grass beach, as it is a short hike or a very short drive from the town of Sarband. However, the very end of the road is quite rough, and cars with low clearance may scrape over some rocks. Exact directions, a map, and more information coming soon.
