Pamir is a range of mountains, part of which is in the Southern part of USSR, which is now Tajikistan, and which shares a border with Afghanistan. There are lakes in the mountains, and here are widescreen photos of three of those lakes. The traveller, Vladimir, says that these lakes have the names “Stinky”, “High” and “Green”. So this is the “Green” lake in the picture above. It actually becomes green under certain lighting conditions. An example is below:
At other times its more blue than green.
The photographer says it has a lot of fish in it.
“And it is surrounded by “lifeless” mountains.”
“And that’s another lake. It’s called “High” lake or Bulunkul. The mountains around it are colorful”, says the traveller.
And the next lake is “Stinky” lake. “It seems to be less fortunate with fish, water and beauty, however it looks pretty good from the road”, says the photographer.
There is an incoming river flowing into this lake.
And a fountain on the shore.
They say in Soviet times mineral drinking water was bottled here at the source.
And I advise you that the photos go full size by clicking on them.
