Welcome to Garm
The amiable town of Garm (Гарм) functions as the Rasht Valley's administrative centre and appears on some maps under its new name of Rasht. With a central bazaar and some outlying weekly livestock markets, the town comprises a few modern civil and commercial buildings strung along central Somoni street. Surrounded by beautiful mountain vistas, it makes a good base from which to explore neighbouring villages with their orchards and fields of watermelons, or to regroup before or after attempting the Sagirdasht Pass via Tavildara. Garm's centre is marked by a large Somoni statue and the bazaar is across the road.
