Attractions On Your Kyrgyzstan-Tajikistan Group Tour
The Fann Mountains:
Fann Mountains present travellers with an opportunity to see the majestic scenery that makes Tajikistan so strikingly beautiful for those who don’t want to begin with the Pamir Highway trip. These stunning, snow-capped peaks are the perfect place for hikes, treks and exploration are located in the Sughd Province in northern Tajikistan. This is probably the most recommended excursion to take in Tajikistan. The area is also known as “The Land Of Lakes”, thirty of which can be seen rather clearly and each displays its own shade.
A Helicopter Ride Over The Pamirs:
This is one of the most enthralling experiences you could ever have. The chopper traverse through the mountains, not over them, so the windows are open and you can feel the brittle mountain air flood into the cabin at 5,000 meters! and the view is spectacular. If the chopper isn’t available, the small or charter planes are still an exhilarating experience.
The Pamir Highway:
The Pamir Highway is probably the second highest road on earth and it crosses the Pamir Mountains through Tajikistan Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. The majority of the highway is in Tajikistan and it is one of the chief tourist draw cards.
The scenery on this drive is thrilling and it is a road trip like no other. You will pass through some of the most majestic mountain ranges on earth that includes Hindu Kush (Hindu Killers) and the Pamirs itself. Expect to trek to mountain lakes, spot endangered Marco Polo sheep and try to sleep in yurts along the way.
The Fergana Valley and the petroglyphs in Tajikistan:
Most culturally diverse, politically divided and notoriously volatile region, the Fergana Valley actually makes for a great travel destination. If you can make it up to Khujand, the second largest city in Tajikistan and home to the worlds cheapest beer, you can travel from there and enjoy some very off-the-beaten-path places in the far north of the country.
Found mostly in the Pamir region around the Ghunt Valley, petroglyphs are antiquated rock carvings that often depict the hunting of animals, as well as some musical instruments and cultural displays portraying the early history of the region. Many of the petroglyphs date back to the bronze age over 2100 years ago.
