For hundreds of years, the Silk Route wound its way across Tajikistan, passing over towering mountains, through lush valleys and beside beautiful hued lakes, making its way to Europe. Today, the landscapes it covered have barely changed at all – in this small Central Asian nation, which is 90% spectacular mountainscapes, much of the population still live in traditional communities little touched by the modern world. An enigmatic and intriguing destination, locally nicknamed ‘the roof of the world’, Tajikistan boasts old Buddhist stupas, Silk Road relics, Zoroastrian ruins and a delightful capital city, Dushanbe. Part Soviet era architecture and part parks, fountains and lakes, and with a backdrop of grassy pastures and snowcapped mountains, it is the perfect place to meet the friendly, welcoming Tajikistani people.
