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. Our journey begins in Dushanbe in Tajikistan before heading south to Khorog following alongside the Afghan border on the Wakhan corridor. Continuing up to Murgab we head north toward the mighty High Pamir range which form the border between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. We follow the road staying in the shadow of the epic Peak Lenin (7134m). We will then wind our way up through the fertile Fergana valley culminating our journey in the ancient city of Osh.
In true Wild Frontiers style, there will be ample time to explore on foot and meet many of the diverse people who call these harsh lands their home. Combining some of the world’s most striking mountain scenery with homestays with the most hospitable locals and an ancient culture that hasn’t changed for thousands of years, this is very much a trip for the exploratory traveller.
