About Tajikistan


 

 

Tajikistan is frequently referred to as "one of the most beautiful places you've never heard of" and has experienced tremendous tourism growth since 2005. We are very proud people and our country is not only known for incredible unexplored natural environment but also heart warming hospitality and authentic untouched culture. We encourage you to browse our Gallery!

To understand why Tajikistan is one of the best untouched adventure and cultural destinations it helps to understand our unique history. What is now known as Tajikistan was once part of the ancient Persian Empire before Arabs conquered the region who also brought Islam. Tajikistan was ultimately claimed by Russia in the 1860's and was part of the USSR under communist leadership until 1991 with the fall of the Soviet Union. Since independence we are a proud new deomcracy and have kept our traditional ways of life. We are unique because our people have multiple ethnicities including, Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Tajik and Russian. This way we are a very diverse country and you can experience many cultures. Our country is perhaps best known for our Pamir Region, where we offer the original Pamir Highway road trip and more.

We now invite you to check out our Tours and Trek offerings and come and visit us!

The Pamir Mountains are fomed by the junction of the Himalayas with Tian Shan, Karakoram, Kunlun, and Hindu Kush ranges and extend from Gorno-Badakhshan province in Tajikistan to Badakshan Province in Afghanistan. To the north they join the Tian Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan and to the south they join the Hindu Kush mountains along the Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan and Gilgit–Baltistan in Pakistan. To the east they may end on the Chinese border or extend to the range that includes Kongur Tagh which is sometimes included in the Kunlun Mountains.
