Trekking Guide in Tajikistan

The Pamir Highway is undoubtedly one of the world’s most stunning roads and yet few Westerners have ever travelled its length, lying as it does in a rarely visited and remote part of Central Asia. It begins, as does our land journey, in the ancient city of Osh, at the head of the fertile Fergana Valley and then winds its way slowly southwards towards the mighty Pamir range, which form part of the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Following this road for the most part, we will visit to the shadow of the epic Peak Lenin (7134m) before heading up into the High Pamir, from where we will head due south through Murgab.

Trekking to Zor kul lakes, you can see the majestic northern wall of Afghanistan Hindikush and fantastic Kok jigit Lake en-rout. Along the western half of the Zor kul Lake runs Afghan – Tajik border. The lake’s eastern half lied in Tajiksitan. In 1842, Lieutenant Woods of the British India Navy Explored the Pyanj and Pamir rivers as far as the latter’s source in Zor kul. Zor kul itself is 20 km long – the road runs along its northern shore.

Wildlife observation will be undertaken during the trek. The famous and endangered Marco Polo sheep (ovis ammon poli) world’s largest-horned argali sheep, Snow leopard endangered and fully protected species, ibexes, marmot and Brown bear, fox, hare are not full list of representatives of wild life of the area. From birds one can find the mountain goose (ular) pigeons, eagles, vulture, and etc.

We continue down alongside the Afghan border on the Wakhan Corridor, before swinging north through Khorog to Dushanbe. There will be ample time to explore on foot and meet many of the diverse people who call these harsh lands their home.
