Ready tours

In this section you can select from several ready-prepared itineraries. 

You can take them as they are, or consider them as a kind of template which can be modified according to your demands: You may shorten them, add more days for places where you would like to stay longer or travel slower, or combine them with other ready itineraries.

 

Please excuse that we can not give pricing details here, as the total costs are dependent on the total number of travellers and other factors (such as season, preferred kind of accomodation etc). If you are interested in one of the tours, please use the contact form.  Indicate which tour you are interested in, when you would like to travel, how many people you are and if you have further demands.

We will then make you a non-binding suggestion on the details of the tour including price.


By the way: For most trekkings you can book donkeys. Please inform us about your requirements in this regard.

Route in short: Dushanbe – Jizew side valley – Bardara side valley – Upper Bartang – (Khafrazdara Side Valley) - (Karakul – Murghab – Madian – Shaimak - Yashilkul – Ghunt Valley – Khorog) - Dushanbe

 

This Jeeptour with trekking elements leads us to the heart of the Pamirs, the Bartang Valley. It is surely the most remote, in terms of landscape most extreme and in terms of culture most traditional and interesting valley of the Western Pamirs. If you select the middle-long version, a 5-day trekking in a side valley will also be included, and in long version of the itinerary, you will be able to see the plateau of the Eastern Pamirs (incl. Tanimas and Yashil Kul) as well, the nature and culture of which differs from that of the Western Pamirs a great deal.

 

Core of this itinerary is the intensive contact with the local Pamiri and Kyrgyz population. Therefore we will spend at every place a little more time than in other itineraries. You will visit many cultural and historical sites such as castles, old and new Pamiri houses, yurts, pastures and holy places, and you will be able to observe traditional agricultural and handicraft techniques – and even try some of them yourself, if you want. The people will perform for you their distinct musical culture and way of dancing, and if during your journey some holiday will take place, you can participate in the festivities. You will have many opportunities to speak to the people and ask them about their way of life – we will translate all your questions.

This is an ideal tour for trekking enthusiasts who nevertheless do not want to neglect the historical and cultural must-sees of the region. After a small test-trekking for acclimatisation in the sweet remote Jizew Valley (side valley of lower Bartang), we will first head south to the Wakhan Corridor, where you will come across historical traces on every footstep. From the Alichur plain we will start our trekking through the center of the Tajik National Park, first surrounding Yashilkul lake, then crossing the Rushan Range over two passes and a vast glacier to the unique village Bardara in the middle Bartang Valley. The highest point of the tour is 4840 m high and the trekkers need a good stamina, though no special alpinistic skills.
