Trek in the Wild Pamirs

Wilderness Trekking in Tajikistan | 20 days

Tajikistan’s Pamir mountain range is the least visited in the world, yet it offers some of the most magnificent landscapes, picturesque rural scenes, exhilarating trekking and genuine hospitality to be found anywhere on the planet. With a number of peaks of over 7,000m, the area is often called the ‘roof of the world’ and it has been on the Great Silk Route since the caravans first travelled to ancient Egypt, bringing sky-colored lapis lazuli to the country.

Best operated as a small private party, our fascinating itinerary incorporates 14 days of trekking including radial hikes and trekking peaks. It’s a complete escape into glorious wilderness with steep rocky mountains, narrow valleys, silent fortresses, tiny villages and Tajik hospitality. You can see marmot, ibex, wolf, hare, brown bear, snow leopard, and the magnificent Marco Polo sheep.
