The Pamir Region

The Pamirs are an area of outstanding natural beauty in Tajikistan, boasting some of the most mountainous landscapes anywhere in the world. But against this remote backdrop most people live in poverty and over a quarter of the population are unemployed: Tourism helps to alleviate poverty because it is  «consumed» in the same place where it is produced, i.e. the tourist visits the destination and buys foods and services there. In addition, tourism employs large numbers of people in the season, for different activities, including a high percentage of young people and women. ITourism takes place in remote areas even in peripheral areas that have strong cultural traditions and largely untouched natural environments.


With no electricity or other obvious sources of energy, the communities of the Eastern Pamir rely upon burning teresken, a short woody shrub, to heat their homes and ovens for cooking purposes. Teresken deforestation is a huge local issue and has resulted in desertification of large areas in the region.

During the Soviet period permanent settlements were constructed for the Kyrgyz of Murghab, and only a few now set  up their yurts in the high  pastures (jailoo  in Kyrgyz) The elevation of the Murghab region is  from 3500—4700m .
