Getting There & Away

Margeb lies at the end of the Anzob Valley along a road that's barely more than a goat track. The route is not for the faint-hearted with narrow ribbons of track clinging perilously to the cliff edge and dramatic drops to a fast and angry river below. At one point, the road traverses a perennial tongue of ice with a layer of hay preventing a fatal skid.

The valley is accessed from Sarvoda (25TJS in a shared taxi, two hours) via the small step-layered villages of Takfon on the M34 and the market town of Anzob.

Cars leave Margeb every Monday morning for Dushanbe (70/700TJS per seat/charter, around eight hours). Note that the Anzob Pass is no longer navigable even for motorcyclists.
