After the incident, that took life's of four cyclists in southern Tajikistan, Police created a special unit which task is to guard popular attractions and provide safety along the travel routes, including Pamir Highway.

The number of police checkpoints along the road in south Tajikistan has increased, and all local cars are being checked. Tourists are traveling both ways with cars and bikes. Hence the road is safe and secure.

You can easily travel with your car.

that people, who did this accident are bastards and enemy of tadjik people first of all. Tadjik people very hospitable and friendly for guests. I hope that they will be punished very strong. peace and greeting from Bishkek.

The government responded promtly and got the suspects. The security along pamir HW is also enforced. There maybe less cyclists. However, as a local, i still see a lot tourists coming by car to enjoy the scenic pamir summer.

Just arrived in Dushanbe.  The situation is secure as usual. Everything is quite again.

From Dushanbe. The situation is perfect. If you are traveling with a travel agency, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Tajikistan can give a Police Officer to accompany your group. So, you will not face any unexpected.
