There are some roads in the world which have taken on near-mythic status, and the Pamir Highway is certainly one of them. Running through remote mountain terrain, the route was for centuries used by the merchants and traders of the ancient Silk Road. During the Great Game Era of the 19th century, the road was formalised, and a concerted engineering effort was made by the Soviet military between 1931 and 1934 to improve it to better funnel troops and provisions to this remote corner of the Soviet empire.
This group tour will travel from Dushanbe, Tajikistan’s charming capital, to Khorog. From there, the road hugs the Afghan border before turning north over the Akbaital Pass at 4,655 metres to Lake Karakul and on into Kyrgyzstan, finishing in Osh before driving on to Bishkek.
