Tajikistan is a remote, mountainous and landlocked country inhabited for over 6,000 years, and it is the least visited part of Central Asia. Historically part of the Samanid Empire, the modern territory was formed as a national republic by the Soviet Union. The country became independent in the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and has successfully connected itself to the world community

Your journey with our company starts from Dushanbe city, which is home to the largest surviving Buddha in Central Asia. Dushanbe is known as the city of flowers; its streets and buildings, display a beautiful blend of Soviet and post-Soviet architecture and urban planning, with the spending parks and avenue, surrounded by flowers and trees.

Leaving Dushanbe, we immediately find ourselves in rural parts of Tajikistan, spending time with the villagers in their mountain homes. After a chance to explore the turquoise Marguzor Lakes on foot, you’ll then continue through the spectacular mountain scenery back to Dushanbe, from where your epic journey starts on the Pamir Highway which is one of the world’s most stunning roads with beautiful scenery, that very few westerners have ever seen.

Continuing up to Murghab and Lake Karakul, we’ll take an adventurous route through the central Pamirs and the Bartang Valley and eventually finish back in Dushanbe.
