Alovaddin is an enthusiastic traveller, who travelled throughout Europe during his Master’s studies, as well as covering every hill, valley and remote corner of his home country. He has been a key member of expeditions in the Pamirs and Zarafshan, and led many hiking groups in the west of Tajikistan.
Alovaddin did his Master’s degree in banking and finance at Stockholm School of Business, but his enthusiastic desire to share his passion, and to show the pristine landscape and culture of Tajikistan, led him to travel extensively. When he gets an opportunity to leave the city’s confines, he gets his camera and strives to conquer the ranges so as to capture the moment when a glorious greeting of the sun kisses the mountains and beyond. Alovaddin feels that the splendour of Tajikistan is reflected perfectly in one of his favourite quote by Goethe’s Faust – “Verweile doch, du bist so schön” – “Stay a while, you are so beautiful”.
