The term 'predominantly mountainous' doesn't do justice to a country where over 90% of the land is upland. This fact of nature has given Tajikistan a precious advantage over its neighbours, namely some of the most inspiring, high-altitude landscape in the world.

As you head into Tajikistan the landscape changes and becomes more a mountainous, trading along the Silk Road must been arduous for and difficult for the merchants as they travelled to the spice markets in Asia.

Founded by Alexander the Great, today Khujand is Tajikistan’s transportation hub and cultural centre.
Central Asia is home to many bazaars, Tajikistan has one of the largest marketplaces – Panjshanbe Bazaar a lively market dating back to 1964. Your senses will be overloaded with sights, sounds and aromas as you explore the array of clothing, food and household goods. Practice your bargaining skills or simply get caught up watching people go about their daily business. Make sure you try the local delicacy – a tasty lamb filled pastry called Sambusa.
