Boasting some of the most beautiful scenery in Central Asia, Tajikistan is a popular destination for visitors looking for outward bound adventures in stunning natural surroundings as well as rich cultural history. Surrounded on all borders by China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan, the country is totally landlocked yet makes up for its lack of coast with the countless lakes that dot the rugged Pamir, Alay, and Fann mountains with their crystal clear glacial waters.
Hikers come for challenging climbs to the peaks of some of Central Asia’s most famous mountain ranges, and adventurers come for the utterly breathtaking drive along the Pamir Highway. Meanwhile, historians are attracted by Tajikistan’s long history. With cities that marked important stops on the great Silk Road, the country’s urban centers are full of mosques and madrasas not to mention fascinating excavations of the ancient civilisations that built their strongholds and fortresses there. A visit to diverse Tajikistan is sure to enchant and beguile and prove to be an unforgettable experience.
