Each turn will lead you to a very unexpected and gorgeous view of the mountain and its hidden gems. There are so many colours in the autumn that you don’t feel like you are among barren mountains. Most part of the road from Dushanbe to...More

I recently spent a week traveling the Pamir Highway from Osh Kyrgyzstan to Dusambe, Tajikistan. Much of the way was following old silk road routes: we took M41 south from Osh to the Kyzyl Art pass, where we crossed into Tajikistan, then turned onto highway...More

We drove from Osh Kyrgyzstan to Dushanbe Tajikistan on the Pamir Highway together with the Wakhan Valley loop along the Afghanistan border. The mountain scenery is about as great as it can possibly be. The roads range from almost impassible to just poor, although they...More

Isolated ,spectacular scenery, sleeping above 3500 metres , crazy European bicyclists , police stops. Then it gets better in the Wakkan valley. 400 km along the Afghan border and Hot baths, forts,and let's not forget the terrible roads. Unforgettable experience. Laurence

This July we travelled the Pamir Highway from Dushanbe to Osh. Our trip took two weeks through this breathtaking landscape. It was probably one of the best roadtrips we ever made. We actually spend more time making sidetrips then on the M41 route itself. Bartang...More

We drove a large part of the Pamir Highway between Dushanbe Tajikistan and Osh Kyrgystan in August 2017. I’d say about 50% of the time it was slow going, treacherous and nerve-wracking but 100% of the time it was scenic and a helluva-lotta fun! If...More

We did 9 days, the other direction, Osh - Dushanbe, our driver said 8-10 days would be just nice. If you do just the main M41, one week is more than enough.
