Central Asia - Tajikistan (Chapter)
This is the Tajikistan chapter from Lonely Planet’s Central Asia guidebook.
Where ‘Great Game’ spies once ventured in Tajikistan’s dramatic landscapes are now playgrounds for hardy climbers, trekkers and adventure travellers. The Wakhan Valley, beautiful ‘Roof of the World’ Pamirs and the breathtaking lakes and pinnacles of the Fan Mountains all contribute to making Tajikistan arguably Central Asia’s most exciting destination.
