Travel to Tajikistan. Travel attractions, Costs.

Location: Located in the southeast of Central Asia, Tajikistan is 93% mountainous and occupies the “highest” position in the region. Moreover, more than half of the land lies at an altitude of over 3,000 meters above sea level. And the highest point in the region – Ismail Samani Peak (7495 m, former Communism Peak) is located in Tajikistan. Needless to say, the nature of the region is not just beautiful, but delightfully beautiful.

Area: 143,100 sq. km.

Population: 8,000,000 people. The population density is 50 people per sq. Km and is distributed relatively evenly throughout the country.

Monetary unit: Somoni. The national currency is the only legal tender in Tajikistan, all payments are made in somoni. The Tajik monetary unit received its name in honor of the founder of the first Tajik state, Ismail Samani (in the Tajik transcription “Somoni”).

Why is it worth coming to Tajikistan?

Even though in recent years the country has opened its doors even more to the outside world, many travelers still do not know that the beauty of Tajikistan is available to everyone, not just adventure seekers. Lovers of anthropology, ethnography and history, connoisseurs of pure nature, and just curious travelers will equally appreciate the advantages of a mountainous country:

Tajikistan is a unique destination that is still free from crowds of tourists and has preserved its original local culture. Any visitor to the country will be able to see the unusual world of people living on the Roof of the World and will discover the rare culture of the ancient people.

Tajikistan is beautiful and rich in natural attractions. The smooth surface of lakes between high ridges, waterfalls, picturesque villages made of stone and clay, fertile valleys, winding serpentines and passes – all this will help you to take a break from the bustle of big cities and change the rhythm of life to enjoy the beauty of the country.

Tajikistan is an exciting country. On this earth, there is an atmosphere of anticipation of something new, unknown. Be prepared for something interesting and unusual waiting for you around the bend in the road, which will make your trip unforgettable.
