The Trans-Alay Range/ the Pamirs

15 September 2015

I spent the whole afternoon strolling (and rolling!) on these golden meadows, with clear sight of snowy Lenin Peak.

What a glorious day to greedily bask in the sun before the temperatures drop drastically when the sun sets.

At lake Tolpur Kol, about 3500m above sea level.

Looking at Lenin Peak, standing at 7134 meters tall, the highest peak of the Trans-Alay Range, the northern part of the Pamirs. At the borders of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

I love these shadows over the pastures as the sun sets.
