Even more than its Central Asian neighbours, the Republic of Tajikistan is a destination that is being rebuilt. Between the 1992-1997 civil war and the conflicts in the neighbouring Afghan mountains, the country was severely affected, but the situation is improving and stabilizing. So much so that breathtaking areas such as the Wakhan corridor and the Pamir Mountains, known by the Anglo-Saxons as the "Pamir Highway" - a must for thrill-seekers - are visited by many travellers by bicycle, motorcycle and even on foot. Tajikistan's tour guide will take you from its capital Dushanbe to the country's former sites, including Pendjikent and Hissar, but also to the lake region in the Fan Mountains, between Pendjikent and Samarkand. Visitors who have already travelled around Central Asia will also be delighted to meet the descendants of the region's Persian-speaking Persian populations, whose language and ways of life differ from the surrounding countries, but where we always find the same hospitality, the same smiles, the same curiosity of the other... the sumptuous setting of the rooftops of the world in addition !

When to go to Tajikistan?

When to go to Tajikistan? The best time to travel to Tajikistan, as with all mountain areas in Central Asia, is obviously in summer, when the passes are more or less passable. It is very difficult to travel in winter in Tajikistan, and spring, with melting snow, is not recommended. In autumn, some passes are already closed, and night temperatures are already dropping very sharply. So when to go to Tajikistan? Preferably between June and mid-September

A return flight from Europe will cost you around €1,000. Aeroflot, Turkish, Emirates and finally Lufthansa are possible companies. From Moscow, you can also reach Tajikistan by train. The trip is obviously long (at least three days), but it is generally full of charm (visas from the countries crossed necessary). Tajikistan is also accessible by car.

In Tajikistan, the altitude and slopes make the roads impassable to buses outside the Ferghana Valley. The country may be crossed by rail, but the obsolescence of the mountain line network must be considered. Most travel agencies in the region offer car rental with a driver (which can be a good solution in Tajikistan where it is difficult to find your way around). In the capitals, taxis are very numerous and always cheap.
