Tajikistan Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Tajikistan
Hello and welcome to our Tajikistan travel blog. You will find all our Tajikistan blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Tajikistan travel blog because you are considering a visit to Central Asia, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip along the Pamir Highway. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Tajikistan.
Our first attempt to visit Tajikistan ended in failure when we were unable to cross the snowbound pass to the border. We succeeded a couple of years later and our most memorable journey of 2016 was travelling the Pamir Highway and Wakhan Valley.
Our Tajikistan blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
