The Pamirs are a unique high mountain complex located primarily in Tajikistan. The region is sometimes referred to as the Pamir Knot, as it is the central hub from which the following five great ranges of Asia extend: Himalaya - extending southeast Karakoram - extending southeast Hindu Kush - extending southwest Tian Shan - extending northeast Kunlun Shan - extending east
Heavy snowfall and large glaciers accompany the high peaks in the Pamirs, and narrow glacier-fed lakes nestle in many of the valleys. Generally, however, the range below snowline receives minimal precipitation, and desert conditions prevail.
