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.
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.
