1. Geography

Starting in the east near the Academy of Sciences Range by Mount Garmo, it stretches from Mount Garmo roughly southwestwards between the Vanj River and Panj River following the flows of the two, and the Obikhingou, a tributary of the Vakhsh River. The Vanj River separates it from the Vanj Range. Roughly 750 km² of the mountain chain are glaciated.

The highest summit of the range is Arnavad Peak Qullai Arnavad, a 6083 m high ultra-prominent peak.
