National Geographic Traveler magazine presented a rating of the best places to visit on the territory of the CIS. The southern coast of Crimea is on first line. Many tourists are planning to visit this place for the summer holidays this year. There are the Caucasus Mountains on the second place. It’s attracting many tourists because of magnificent scenery and fresh air.
The honorable third place was given to the Pamir - the highest mountain range, located in the south-eastern part of the Pamir-Alai mountain region on the border between China and Tajikistan. Here’s also beautiful nature, stunning views, river ice and snow-white peaks.
The Pamir translated as "Roof of the World" and it’s really. When you look from the bottom up, it seems that the mountains touch the sky. And when you are on the top, you can see the world's highest mountain ranges: the Hindu Kush, the Tian Shan and the Himalayas at a glance.
