Tajikistan, a Central Asian country rarely visited by foreigners is one of the last few places where you can truly experience adventure in a wild & untouched landscape. A landlocked country dominated by the Pamir & Alay mountains, Tajikistan is also part of the ancient Silk Road which passed through the country centuries ago.
My journey in Tajikistan began with a trip to Osh, the southern city of Kyrgyzstan. From Osh, I traveled along the Pamir Highway, also known as M41 Highway into Tajikistan. The Pamir Highway is also known as the "Roof the World" & travelling on the Highway is an adventure in itself. To travel this route, I had to get a Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO) permit from the Tajikistan embassy in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
Driving out from Osh, the landscape started to change & within a couple of hours, I find myself facing some of the most inhospitable but gorgeous mountain landscape. I spent a night in Sary Tash village en route to Murghab.
