There are many beautiful regions in the world, and Central Asia is definitely one of them. Born and raised in Tajikistan I had the privilege to travel in the region since my childhood with my Grandfather, who knew a lot about the different cultures and history of the Central Asia because of his diverse background. The travel experience and knowledge gained from my grandfather led me into tourism when I grew up. Since 2011 I have worked in different travel companies and have been guiding tourists throughout Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan along the legendary Pamir Highway for the past two years. My passion for travel, knowledge, and love for the people of the region have always motivated me to share it with tourists who come to these mountainous "stans", where they not only see breathtaking sceneries but also experience the authentic hospitality which is rooted deeply in the history of Central Asian culture.
Back in 2016 an author of Tajikistan's guidebook in German language and a very good friend of mine Dagmar Schreiber told me about Indy-Guide website which connects tourists with local guides. After registering on the website I have started receiving various travel questions and requests which led to bookings. Over the two years working with Indy-Guide as a provider I have received dozens of tourists and many feedbacks. Along the way, I have developed a good relationship with the Indy-Guide's founder Ati Tosun, whose ideas always inspired me. It was this inspiration and I guess our mutual passion and interest in the development of tourism in the region that inspired me to work for Indy-Guide. Now I am Indy-Guide's country manager in Tajikistan, eager to share my knowledge and help for those planning to come to my beloved country!
My skills, interests, and hobbies: I am a good storyteller and know a lot about culture and history of Central Asia. I enjoy helping people to travel and share my knowledge, breaking stereotypes especially those about "Stan" countries. I like to get lost when I travel and therefore I always try new routes and go off the beaten path which in turn always brings me to some surprise.
