44 Springs

The 44 Springs, known locally as Chiluchor Chashma, is a great location for swimming, eating, and viewing the small individual springs that comes straight out of the rock hill. The springs are very close to Shahrtuz and Qubodiyon, and are a convenient final destination for a day trip from Dushanbe. The road is in great condition all the way from Dushanbe to the 44 Springs.

The 44 Springs are very crowded on weekends when the weather is hot, but in the slow season and during the weekdays you should see far fewer people.
