Going to Kukhi-Malik burning coal place (pointed by an arrow)

Ravat Village, Yagnob River, Zeravshan Range, Viloyati Sogd, Tajikistan
Name(s) in local language(s):Рават (Рабат)
Location is approximate, estimate based on other nearby localities.
 
Latitude & Longitude: 39° North , 69° East (est.)
Margin of Error:~178km
Locality type:Village


Self-ignited burning coal known in the area at least since Alexander the Great came through Yagnob River Valley on his way to India.

Currently there are two main locations where coal is burning more or less close to the surface. One is on right shore of Yagnob River about 1 km upstream of former Ravat Kishlak (Village), in Kukhi-Malik area. Another is on the right shore of Yagnob River near its confluence with Gaberud stream. There are a number of small coal burnings in the area producing at that stage mostly liquid or semi-liquid organic products.
