Encompassing some of the most spectacular and remote settings in Central Asia, the traditional heartland of the Persian-speaking Tajiks is home to majestic mountains, crystal-clear lakes and wide open valleys. This breathtakingly journey takes you from the Tajik capital and deep into the heart of one of the region’s most hauntingly beautiful landscapes.
Beginning in Dushanbe you will have an opportunity to explore Tajikistan’s modern capital before heading towards the towering peaks of the Pamirs. Against a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery you will drive through gorges and villages, skirting the Afghan border as you follow the famous Pamir Highway deep into southern Tajikistan.
Take in lively Afghan markets and the deep blue waters of Lake Yashikul, drive into the fertile Wakhan Valley and gaze out across the immense grandeur of the Afghan Hindu Kush. The history of Central Asia is etched deep into the soul of this landscape; from its Stone Age petroglyphs and abandoned fortresses, to its captivating mountain villages and the distant camel caravans that still ply their trade across these timeless panoramas.
