The Southern Tajikistan Tourism website is part of a volunteer-powered tourism development project. We hope to make tourists aware of the many amazing destinations throughout southern Tajikistan.
During most of the year, Tajikistan’s beautiful high mountain ranges are closed due to snow and road closures. However, the more moderate climate of the south allows for year-round visits.
Furthermore, many destinations can be visited in a single day-trip from Dushanbe. Hiking, swimming, visiting historical sites and seeing wildlife are just a few of the many tourist activities in southern Tajikistan’s Khatlon Province.
Please explore our website and its constantly expanding resources. We hope to soon have exact maps of every tourist destination, specific travel instructions, and other valuable advice to assist the independent traveller in planning their trip to the south.
Please don’t be intimidated by the lack of information on southern Tajikistan. Travelling throughout this region is actually quite easy. We hope, with this website, to make it even easier.
Please note that information on this website is incomplete. For now, we are including as many photographs as possible, to give the prospective tourist a good idea of what to expect.
Our target date for a ready website is
late Spring 2016. [Due to difficulty in securing a visa, the main researcher will not be travelling to Tajikistan in 2016. A final website is delayed indefinitely] Between now and then, we will be regularly adding material to the website. Check back occasionally, particularly our news page, where most updates will be added.
We are part of a non-profit organisation that is mostly volunteer-powered. However, we are actively searching for funding to expand our programmes and we are open to joint projects.
If you have any questions or comments about the website, please send a message to Christian.Bleuer at gmail.
