Much to the delight of the locals especially in the winter time, there are more than 30 hot springs scattered throughout the Pamir area. A perfect opportunity for a stopover on the journey.
We recommend a maximum of 10-15 minutes stay in the hot spring. However, it is not advised for people with high blood pressure to enjoy hot springs.
