Tour description:

The word “pamir” means “roof of the world” and rightly so. The Pamir Mountains are goliaths that touch the sky, and because of this, the Pamir Highway that crosses them is the 2nd highest international highway in the world. During this tour you will visit corners of untouched nature and meet hospitable people.

This trip follows the Pamir Highway along the border with Afghanistan and over the Pyanj River. Beautiful and fascinating destinations await you along this route including natural hot springs, ancient fortresses, and temples. Not to mention the opportunity to stay in local guest houses and experience the hospitality and culture of the Tajik people; it’s the trip of a lifetime!
