I lived in Dushanbe for many years and while there I passed thru the Fann Mountains many times. I have visited Iskanderkul Lake and little villages nestled along the main road from Dushanbe to Ayni and on to Panjakent and Khujand. These mountains get into your soul and heart. The people have always been fantastic, warm and helpful. It certainly would help you to learn some Russian or Tajik before you go but many people now speak English. I would visit any time in the summer from March onward to September. Although early March may be too soon to go into the mountains it is really the spring vernal equinox Nowruz Festival that should be experienced which occurs in late March. Buzkashi also happens in the early spring as well. There is so much culture to see in Tajikistan that it is a must see country.
