Khujand

For many, a trip to Khujand happens en route from Uzbekistan or Kyrgyzstan to the scenic Fann Mountains or Zeravshan Valley.
On the 28th (Tue), stop by Panjshanbe Bozor, then get a new perspective on nature at Historical Local Lore Museum of Archeology and Fortification, then appreciate the history behind Kamal Khujandi Statue, and finally stroll around Somoni park. Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some photo ops at Monument to Ismoil Somoni, examine the collection at House Museum Kamal Khuzhandi, then don't miss a visit to Khujand Fortress, then admire the striking features of Arbob Cultural Palace, and finally explore the activities along Kayrakkum Reservoir.

To plan Khujand vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

San Francisco, USA to Khujand is an approximately 27- hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Yekaterinburg Standard Time, which is usually a 13 hour difference. Traveling from San Francisco in July, expect nights in Khujand to be somewhat warmer, around 71°F, while days are much warmer, around 96°F.

Little more than a small town at the turn of the 20th century, Dushanbe grew rapidly during the Soviet era and now serves as the national capital and home to nearly 800,000 people.
Get out of town with these interesting Dushanbe side-trips: Hisor (Hisor Fortress & Hisor HIstorical and Cultural Preserve). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Flagpole with the Flag of Tajikistan, stroll around Rudaki Park, get your game on at Kokhi Navruz, and try out the rides at Delfin Aquapark.

To plan Dushanbe vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

You can fly from Khujand to Dushanbe in an hour. Alternatively, you can drive. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Khujand in July since evenings lows in Dushanbe dip to 65°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to go by car to Qurghonteppa.
