The Fine Art of Bivouacking

The featured image above shows — in my opinion — one of the most spectacular places for a bivouac in the Fann Mountains of Tajikistan. If you want to reach it, it is easy to be found on the well defined trail towards the high Chimtarga Pass, but be prepared for cold and windy conditions.

Unfortunately, we did not slept there — however, we thoroughly enjoyed eight other fine bivouacs in the northern part of these beautiful mountains. The circumstances forced us to camp much longer than the time spent walking, so we almost always chose our tent places with care.
