TAJIKISTAN — a country where 93% of the land is covered by mountains — isn’t a place you hear a lot about. But Russian photographer Oleg Grigoryev’s images might just change all that.

Taken on a hiking trip through the Fann Mountains, the world as viewed through a tent flap at dawn looks seriously good. Titled ‘Morning Views from the Tent’, Grigoryev gives us a glimpse into a country of alpine lakes and snowy peaks that reach nearly 5,500 meters high. And it’s enough to make me want to trade all the espressos in the world for hiking boots and endless mornings in the mountains of Central Asia. How about you?
