OVERVIEW

Embark on an adventure of a lifetime through Tajikistan's Pamir Highway. See with your own eyes what Marco Polo described as Badakhshan and where the histories most secretive wars occurred during the Great Game. On this trip, we will show you how local people in remote areas live and introduce you to their culture and history. 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 and history that goes back to thousands of years ago, when traders of the silk road from China used to pass with their caravans through this road, you will see the traces of the ancient Silk Road and other archeological sites, including over 10000 rock paintings and petroglyphs going back more than 10000 years, castles and fortresses going back 2000 year and ancient shrines to Muslim saints, witnessing the practices and beliefs of the local religion. This trip is less strenuous and rather relaxed, however, it doesn't mean it is boring, in fact, you are going to be busy with lots of moving around, with walking tours of towns and cities and villages, some long days, and possibly remote locations. Our core principles on this trip are spontaneity, flexibility, organization and effective time management.
