Welcome to Tajikistan
Tajikistan is a landlocked country lying in the heart of Central Asia. It has land borders to the north with Kyrgyzstan, to the east China, to the east Afghanistan, and to the west and north-west with Uzbekistan.

After its independence in 1991 there was a period of civil war, however tourism has recently improved, with the country’s unspoiled mountain landscapes attracting a growing number of climbers. The ancient Silk Road passed through it. The intrepid might also stalk the mountains in search for the infamous Yeti.
