Sary-Tash is located at the beginning of a plateau of the Pamirs and is also the way point to the two tajik and one chines border.
There is a petrol station a few poor grocery shops. We were also not able to change any money in Sary-Tash.
You will have a beautiful panorama over the Pamir range including Peak Lenin from here. About 30km further west from Sary-Tash, not far from the village Sari-Mogol, is the best view up to Peak Lenin.
