Overview

Book
The southern edge of the Central Asian republics is defined by the rocky barrier of the Pamirs which includes the little-visited Fann Mountains. This spectacular range has numerous snow-capped 5000 metre peaks and the potential for brilliant trekking, through rocky valleys and across high passes. Accessed through the Tajikistan capital, Dushanbe, our sensational 12-day trek makes a comprehensive tour of this rugged and picturesque landscape, where Tajik shepherds graze their flocks on remote upland pastures. Climbing to high viewpoints, including the dramatic Mazalat Pass (4133m) and enjoying a succession of superb lakeside camping places, this is a truly memorable trek. After the trek, we travel into neighbouring Uzbekistan, where we visit the stunning Silk Road cities of Samarkand and Tashkent. More than 2500 years old and known as the 'Gem of the East', Samarkand is one of the wonders of the world, with mosaic-clad monuments that are guaranteed to take your breath away. This is Central Asia at its best!

I most enjoyed trekking in the Fann Mountains, meeting the nomads and partying with the donkey men.

I had a great time. It was interesting on multiple levels, the hikes were great, the people were great, the cultural experiences were great. I would highly recommend this trip, this leader and this crew. The length of trip worked well. The hikes were great and the mountains are picturesque. The guide and the local Tajik people were a lot of fun. The area is quite interesting from a cultural and historic vantage point. It met my expectations in that it was fascinating on multiple levels. It would be highly recommeded for the traveller that has been "everywhere" on the adventure travel circuit.

Great trip in an off-the-beaten track area. The combination of trekking and culture (in Samarkand) was good.

There was a very personal approach from the office (an email to ask if I'd got my visas, for example)which was very much appreciated. I also like being able to access all the details of my trips on the website. Tim was meticulous in his approach. He was very hands on and worked very hard to make sure that everything ran smoothly and that even the smallest details had been thought of. He put a lot of effort into building relationships with both the group and the support staff and he always knew what was going on. It was simply a model of how to lead a trip. I thought the trip was excellent. The arrangements went very smoothly and the group was able to just sit back and enjoy it. The scenery was spectacular and the walking extensive (as hoped). It was very hot, but that was apparently exceptional. Overall, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip. Spectacular scenery and campsites completely off the beaten track.
