HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Experience the legendary hospitality of Central Asia. With five nights spent across Tajikistan's excellent homestay network, you'll immerse yourself in local life.
  • Skirting the border with Afghanistan, get glimpses of the other side, from the hairraising Afghanbuilt footbridges (ovrings) to the exotic imports on display in Khorog's local bazaar.
  • Enjoy a picnic lunch as you take in the splendour of Karakul, the largest lake of some 800 in the Pamirs.
  • Soaring along the iconic Pamir Highway is an unforgettable experience, especially in fine weather when the mighty peak of Muztag Ata rears its head.
Start in Bishkek and end in Tashkent, the Tajikistan Discovery tour is a guided city sightseeing trip that takes 17 days. You will visit Ptup, Osh, Murgab and 11 other destinations in 4 different countries. Tajikistan Discovery is a small group tour which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. See below for further details.

Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan sprawl across the vast expanses of Central Asia but are still hidden from many visitor’s minds, despite offering outstanding beauty, simplicity and a feeling of complete remoteness. The allure lies in the heritage of the Silk Road, where ideas, culture and people flowed from East to West, and in the green field backcountry and sweeping mountain landscapes that play host to the traditional nomadic lifestyle. Journey through cities featuring crumbling reminders of Soviet occupation and influence and out into the stunning wilds, where the ancient history of these long-lived nations – Persian and Mongol, Buddhist and Muslim – becomes clearer. While political and military forces have battled over these regions, life in these isolated areas has changed little in the past centuries – the families you will stay with in their homes have remained, while empires have fallen.

“Our trip was very good for the money. The accommodations were adequate, our guide handled a lot of the details and we had time to explore on our own. Best for people traveling solo or as a couple.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • This is the ultimate Central Asian road trip. Travellers who enjoy the journey even more than the destination will get the most out of this trip.
  • This trip visits places as high as 5000 metres above sea level, which can cause altitude sickness, regardless of age or physical health. Please see the ‘Medical and
  • Health Information’ section of the Essential Trip Information details on travelling at altitude.
  • The varied terrain of Tajikistan also makes for extremely varied weather. Temperatures can range from below freezing to over 40ºC so check the weather forecast online before you visit and pack accordingly.
  • Medical facilities can be as far away as 2-3 days' drive at times, as some locations are very remote. During this journey the group will spend time in remote areas without home comforts or easy access to medical facilities. You will need to have excellent physical health to join this trip and consult with your doctor before travelling if you have any ongoing illnesses or injuries.
  • In the Pamirs you'll stay in local homestays, with the whole group often sleeping in one large room on mattresses on the floor. Bathroom facilities are outdoors, and it won't be possible to take a shower every night of the trip.
  • Daily drives range from 3 to 10 hours in duration. Depending on traveller numbers, the group may be split into two vehicles. Though the longer travel days and single night overnight stays can be tiring, you'll be in a private vehicle, and much of the scenery in this part of the world is simply stunning.
