Lake Azorchashma (translated from Tajik - Thousand Sources). From the south-western side, the Azorchashma river flows into the 617-meter-long lake bay; from the south-east side, the second Chapdara river flows into the 463-meter long lake bay.
In the northwestern part of the lake flows the Azorchashma River, which breaks down in cascades of waterfalls. The distance from Lake Marguzor to Lake Azorchashma is 3 kilometers of a heavy mountain road, which is laid first along the right (eastern), and then along the left (western) side of the gorge.
