As more than 90% of the country is mountainous terrain, Tajikistan encapsulates the true ethos of adventure travel with hundreds of ways to immerse yourself in beauty and wonder.
The word that exemplifies travel in Tajikistan is authenticity - from the estimated oldest preserved settlement in Central Asia to pristine mountain landscapes. It is one of the most stunning and historically rich countries on earth, and has remained this way since traders traversed the high mountain passes past crystal blue alpine lakes.
Just over the border from Uzbekistan’s shining Silk Road star Samarkand, Tajikistan’s stunning natural value and easy border restrictions make it the perfect contender for a worthy destination cross-border Central Asia itinerary. What’s more, this country is far off-the-beaten path, meaning highly engaging experiences without coming across another tourist. Though there are only two Tajik UNESCO World Heritage Sites, there are endless natural and cultural experiences and opportunities surrounding each site.
Explore this authentic, rugged land and prepare to be mystified.
