Join YPT along the Pamir Highway from China through Kyrgyzstan to Tajikistan!
Following on from our Karakoram Highway Tour, YPT will also be heading along the Pamir Highway into Tajikistan. In the same style as the Karakoram Highway tour, we will cross the border from China into Kyrgyzstan before we embark along the Pamir Highway. Love mountains? This is the tour for you!
The tour starts in the Chinese city of Kashgar. Closer to Damascus than to Beijing, this city has quite a different charm to it than its bigger counterparts in the East. We’ll have a full day of exploring before we head for the border.
Across the border, we head for the tiny town of Sary Tash, in Kyrgyzstan. Here we’ll explore our favourite named mountain – Lenin Peak. If you’d prefer to join us from Osh in order to avoid having to get a chinese visa, it is possible! Get in touch with us!
In the days that follow, we’ll enter Tajikistan and drive for days along the Pamir Highway. Incredible landscapes, old Soviet bus stops, lost Lenin monuments, it’s all there! At night, we will stay in distinctive local towns across the Pamir. The tour will take the Wakhan Corridor route meaning we get the possibility to glance at the other side of the river and experience local life in Afghanistan. A rare opportunity which also shows the stark contrast between both countries.
We will end the trip in Dushanbe, Tajikistan’s capital, where we see the modern side of the country.
