Stay in the homes of the Pamiri natives, camp near centuries old caravanserais and explore the blue Alpine lakes on this Tajikistan trekking adventure.
Another year of this extraordinary Tajikistan trekking adventure. Of all the Greater Ranges on the Asian continent, the Pamir Mountains are probably the least known and the least visited of them all. They boast the world’s largest glacier outside the Polar regions, the 77km long Fedchenko Glacier, and harbour three mountains taller than 7000m.
The journey starts with a road trip on one of the most spectacular mountain roads in the world, the Pamir Highway. You will cross rickety suspension bridges and pass deep gorges, all in the shadow of the mountain giants of the Pamir Mountains. You’ll stay in the friendly town of Khorog and visit the wide plains of the Shakhdara Valley on the way to Central Asia’s coldest inhabited place, Bulunkul, which is the trailhead of the trek taking you deeper into the range.
You will be traversing through the heart of the mountain range. Along the way, you will stay in the homes of the Pamiri natives, camp near centuries old caravanserais and explore the shores of shimmering blue Alpine lakes. To complete the traverse the team will scale a mountain pass that’s taller than Mont Blanc. Be prepared to be spoiled for life!
