Doing trekking in Fan Mountains, Tajikistan in July 2014 I was very interested in temporary architecture of mountain herders and their lifestyle. Local people stay in the villages during winter but as soon as warm days come they move to summer locations, higher in the mountains to accompany their sheep and goats flocks. Most men had moved to Russia (or particularly to Moscow) to earn money. So here in the mountains the place where women and children live.

Here are some photos of summer contractions build by Tajik herders, I visited.
