Overview
More
The Pamir Mountain range is part of the Western Himalaya and features several peaks over 7000m. The terrain is diverse from towering peaks to high altitude desert plains and climate conditions can vary from +35C to -40C depending upon the time of year. The Pamir Highway follows paths forged long ago by the ancient Silk routes, when that precious commodity travelled from China to European and Arabian markets and traded goods returned in its stead. Legacies of those forgotten times can still be seen with cliff top fortresses and ancient caravanserais. The highway winds over 2000km from Samarkand in Uzbekistan through Dushanbe (capital of Tajikistan) and the Pamir mountains to Osh in Kyrgyzstan and then on to Bishkek (capital of Kyrgyzstan) through the Tien Shan mountain range. The peoples of Central Asia hold hospitality as a value of great importance and travellers are warmly welcomed whether the visit is planned or otherwise!

Absolutely stunning. Beautiful scenery, isolated villages. This is Central Asia! Take layers of clothes as it gets hot and cold with the altitudes. Enjoy the scenery. Roads are bad so if you get altitude or motion sickness, take something!

Tajikistan trip: Besides the Pamir and all the mysticism that surrounds this hidden country, I have always been attracted to the sound of the nation´s name and wonder what Tajik folks look like (some blonds, some tall others small)….. This narod (nation) of about 143...More

The Pamir mountains are the 'roof of the world'. Spectacular scenery. Road are rough and you need a good local driver and 4x4

Undoubtedly one of the most breathtaking road trips I've ever undertaken, from Bishkek to Osh to Murghab, then along the Afghan border to Khorog and Dushanbe. I did it the 'easy' way - by motor vehicle, and wax not one of the many hardy cyclists...More

Very good for the adventure lovers. Great scene mid of Tajik Afghan border. Few restaurants. Toilets are not up to the mark.

We rode motorbikes across the Pamir with Silk Off Road Tours and it was simply the best ride I have ever done. Staggering scenery, lovely people and a well organised tour with great bikes, thanks Marat for the trip of a lifetime.

The reason is obvious. I did try to give you a local's email on my answer, however the "Tripadvisor Answer Guideline" popped up. That's why.
