Tajikistan is a country with towering peaks wherever you look - an astounding 90% is covered by mountains. Amongst this impressive landscape lie vivid glacial lakes and remote villages of hardy people. They don't get to see many travellers, but to those who pass through they are friendly and welcoming.
The second-highest highway on earth, the 'Pamir Highway' is the jewel in the Tajik crown. This historical trade route snakes through the mountains, ensuring breath-taking views to all who travel it.
