Today we are featuring a photo collection which showcases a personal adventure of the Russian photographer Oleg Grigoryev that will leave you amazed, intrigued and probably wanting to try something like that yourselves. And we don’t blame you…. Oleg had a pretty incredible time travelling round Central Asia with his tent and photographing the stunning landscape that is the majestic Fann Mountains in Tajikistan which he was fortunate enough to experience.
Oleg’s project called Morning Views from the Tent features a series of photographs taken presumably very early in the morning through the un-zipped flap of his tent. The photographs depict fantastic images of the Fann Mountains and their highest peak – Chimtarga (4,700 metres above sea level) – which Grigoryev managed to climb in just over seven days.
Through his photographs, he is showcasing the diversity of this mountain range – from the bright blue lakes to snow-clad peaks. The Fann Mountains, which extend up to 5.5km altitude, are known for their gorgeous lakes that feature in quite a few of Oleg’s pictures. There is Big Allo Lake (3,150 metres altitude), Kulikalon Lake, Muddy Lake (3,600m) and Lake Alaudin, all different, but all beautiful.
Each of the photographs from the “Morning Views of the Tent” collection offers an interesting glimpse into this rarely traveled area which is definitely worth paying a visit. If you are not a seasoned climber but love to see the Fann Mountains and the incredible Tajikistan, there are travel agencies that can arrange trekking tours. Oleg’s photo documentation of these mountains is surely a big enough of an incentive.
