Saratok is a beautiful village just East of Iskandarkul. It has become a popular trekking destination, and there are several home-stays in the area, so accommodations are easy to find. There is good access to numerous alpine objectives, and there is an abundance of limestone within an easy walk from the village. The rock climbing is so far undeveloped, but there is a great deal of bouldering, and there has been interest in developing several crags in the area for rock climbing.
It takes a little over 3 hours to get there from Dushanbe. Head north from Dushanbe on M34 roughly 110km. You will pass several towns and villages, most likely sheep and goats, a turn-off to 'Safed Dara' the local ski resort, a 5 km long tunnel, some mines, and a few more villages. Eventually you will drive through the village of Takfon and will see the turn-off to go to Iskandarkul and Saratok. You will cross this bridge, and continue to drive along this road from about 24km. The road gets rougher the further you go, but I've seen all manner of vehicle make it to the village. Another 9km or so later and you will reach the village of Saratok.
