Starting in Tashkent and ending in Dushanbe, the Kyrgyz & Tajik Explorer tour is a guided adventure tour that takes 33 days. You will visit Fann Mountains, Dushanbe, Karakol and 21 other destinations in 4 different countries. Kyrgyz & Tajik Explorer is a group tour which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. See below for further details.

This adventurous overland tour of two of the Silk Route’s most ruggedly beautiful countries, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, is ideal for those seeking an outdoors expedition, with plenty of opportunities for hiking and horse-riding among spectacular mountain scenery and multi-hued lakes. Travelling between Tashkent in Uzbekistan and Dushanbe in Tajikistan, via Kyrgyzstan, we explore the lush farmlands of the Fergana Valley, the dramatically-rugged Tian Shan mountain range, and the iridescent lakes of the Fann Mountains, to name but a few. We take our time on this journey, driving across high mountain passes to remote villages and traditional communities, visiting some of the historical highlights en route, and staying with semi-nomadic peoples and enjoying a region famed for its hospitality. We also explore towns and cities such as Osh, Khorog and Bishkek, visiting markets and bazaars and browsing the spices and merchandise.

For this Kyrgyz & Tajik Explorer tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
