The cycle of publications about the main sights of Tajikistan is coming to a logical conclusion, which means that it is time to tell about those locations that will become a place of rest for travelers who went to the country to visit the sights. Today, “Embassy Life” offers to get acquainted with information about three resorts located in the area of the Hissar ridge.
The balneoclimatic resort of Khoja-Obigarm is located at an altitude of 1900 m above sea level in a narrow gorge in the south of the Hissar ridge. The distance to Dushanbe is only 48 km, and this is a great option for those who want to relax near the capital of Tajikistan. In Tajik, “ob” means “water”, and “garm” means “hot”.
The hot springs of the small mountain river Khoja-Obigarm gave the name to the health resort. These weakly radioactive thermal (t 62-96 C) mineral springs with a high content of silicic acid are used for baths, irrigation and drinking, and Oxukon Lakes are used for mud treatment. Khodji-Obigarm is one of the few places on the planet where radioactive vapor treatment is also used.
Another advantage of visiting this resort is its climate. Summer is not hot here, there are no sudden temperature jumps, and the air is always clean. There is a vocational sanatorium (370 places) for patients with diseases of the circulatory system, movement and support, nervous system, gynecological diseases. There are steam baths (radon sauna), hydrotherapy (baths, showers, swimming pools).
The balneological resort, 26 km west of Dushanbe and 15 km from the Hissar railway station, is located on the southern slope of the Hissar ridge, at an altitude of about 1100 meters, in the Khanaka-Luchob interfluve.
The climate is temperate continental. Winters are mild, summers are hot and dry. The average temperature in January is about 0 ° C, and in July – 26 ° C.
The main natural healing factor is thermal (37-41 °C) chloride—sulfate calcium-sodium waters (mineralization from 3 to 16 g/l) containing methane. They are used for baths, and bottled as therapeutic table water called “Shambari” (mineralization of 3 g / l), used for diseases of the digestive system. There are professional sanatoriums.
The new Saturn Resort in the village of Shambari, Gissar district of the Republic of Tajikistan, which opened in the spring of 2015, specializes in the treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, diseases of the musculoskeletal system, nervous and cardiovascular and other diseases.
The sanatorium is located right by the Shambari spring. The pension is located 25 km north-west of the capital of Tajikistan, at an altitude of 1150 meters above sea level, surrounded by the picturesque hills of Hissar.
The territory covers 10 hectares of land and the main building is a 5-storey complex. For those who want to get high quality and efficient services, built special facilities.
