Jizeu valley is right at the entrance of Bartang valley which is the most wildest and gorgeous valleys in the western Pamirs. Jizeu has only about 12 to 14 households cut off electricity and other facilities which make it Wild Life Community, totally independent of government support.

So, take your time to visit the most gorgeous hiking destination “the Jizeu Valley”. Cross the bridge off the road and walk up two hours along the stream up to the seasonally over-flowing, tree lined river lakes. Arrive in the village and offer a lunch in one of the guesthouses. First lake is at the beginning of the village and the second one is about 2,3km beyond the last guesthouse. And 10 km beyond the second lake, there two more lakes and a horizon of high peaks that needs one more overnight to do it. Bring your food or things you need since there is no shop. You can use spring waters if it is Ok for you.
