See in Tajikistan
Whilst Tajikistan may not appear on most people’s priority destinations, its mountains are some of the most beautiful in the world and the terrain is wild and remote in many parts. The main attraction for tourists is the road trip on the ‘Pamir Highway’ (M41), journeying from the capital, Dushanbe, eastwards into the Pamir mountains and onwards to the north-eastern border between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
The route has become a singificant attraction for adventure travellers using various modes of transport and cyclists, motor-cyclists and 4×4 drivers all seek the challenge of this bone-crunching 2000Km switchback through the western arm of the Himalayas.
Recent tourism resource developments have seen responsible steps made in accommodating the increasing numbers of travellers and a balance is being achieved, maintaining the cultural and environmental heritage of the communities.
