Unfortunately as of 2021 we are currently only operating Camp Archa: The Wood
Camp Archa: The Gorge – GPS: 39.0392417N, 68.2420906E
Note: this site doesn’t have vehicle access and is 5+km hike from the nearest parking area. This distance also means that the Kitchen for Campers service is more limited.
We are delighted to announce that in partnership with Fann Adventure Travel and Dilovar’s Homestay in Saratoq (Saritag) we have secured 10-year leases for 4 campsites in the valley west of Saratoq. Over the coming months we will be putting in some basic amenities including small, discrete toilet and shower blocks, established fire and BBQ facilities and a waste disposal system.
Introducing: Kitchen for Campers (KFC)! As part of securing the land and in partnership with Dilovar’s Homestay in Saratoq we are able to offer catering services to make your camping experience that bit more comfortable! Any combination of breakfast, lunch and dinner options are available and will be delivered to your campsite at a time of your choosing – additional options include fresh bread, eggs and homemade dairy products from the village. Contact Dilovar (+992905032202 – Tajik and Russian) or our office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details on menu and prices.
Through Fann Adventure Travel we are able to arrange transport to and from the campsites (apart from The Gorge, which has no vehicle access and The Rock, which has limited vehicle access) to anywhere in Tajikistan.
We’re so pleased to partner in a project where we have been able to ensure that the land is protected for the next 10 years from any form of development and where the local communities have the potential to benefit from yours, and our, love of camping and the outdoors!

All rates include the National Park fee. When you reach the park barrier at Iskandarkul just let the guard know that you are visiting the Archa Camp (Лагери Арча) and are guests of Dilovar. Payment can be made direct to Dilovar in Saratoq or at the Archa office in Dushanbe.
For residents (including non-Tajiks with OVIR Registration): 15TJS/person/night (kids under 7: FREE)
For tourists: 30TJS/person/night (kids under 7: FREE)
These fees enable us to lease and conserve the land, maintain the sites, keep them clean, provide the amenities and in doing so provide employment for members of the local mountain communities.
