Tajikistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia, which is not less than 90% mountainous. It became independent country in 1991. It borders Afghanistan to the south, China to the east, Kyrgyzstan to the north, and Uzbekistan to the west and northwest. The ancient Silk Road passed through it. Tajikistan is a fascinating place and it`s becoming one of the most visited places for the tourists who look for adventures. Traveling in Tajikistan starts from the capital Dushanbe, the Silk Road mystique places like Khujand and Istaravshan, the least visited mountain scenery of Pamirs Range in the southeast (was the tallest mountain in the former USSR) and mountainous region dominated by the Zerafshan (Trans-Alay) Range in the north provide world-class trekking opportunities. During the Tajikistan travel you will sail in the scenic beauty of mountains and deserts, connect with the locals during community village and yurt stays, marvel and colorful bazaars, understanding of the cultures of Central Asia.
The cuisine of Tajikistan has similarities with it`s neighboring countries like Uzbekistan and Russia. They have same passion to “Plov” as Uzbeks do. And, like other Central Asian countries they eat almost all the meals with flatbread “None”. Dried fruits, sambusa and mantu are the “must try” dishes of the country!
