OVERVIEW

If you are looking for a perfect road-trip with less strenuous activates but more exposure to local culture and interaction with local people then look no further than our Classic Pamir Highway tour. We will introduce you to the diverse cultures and people who have been living in this rugged and barren lands for thousand years and who have managed to preserve their unique traditions despite many invasions in the past, from Alexander the great to Russian and British empire. And while traveling through some of the magnificent mountain ranges with spectacular landscape views you will experience the hospitality in every sense of this word. Filled with authenticity this place still has the atmosphere of antiquity, when traders of the silk road from China used to pass with their caravans through this road, you will witness the scene even today. The ancient forts that guarded this part of the silk road have been preserved and they are just spectacular. Part of the Pamir highway from Kalai Khumb town to Langar of Wkahan valley goes along the famous Oxus or Panj river which is a natural border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan, and while driving you can see the lives of Afghan villages and the caravans just as it used to be during the Silk road. Learning the culture of Pamiri people which includes Zoroastrian and Islamic traditions and taking bath in holy hot-springs along the way will make this trip unforgettable.
