Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Epic mountain landscapes, glacial lakes and the mighty Oxus River encircle ancient Buddhist sites, Silk Road trading posts, medieval shrines and planned Soviet cities alike. The guide includes tried and tested trekking routes in the Frann, Zerafshan and Pamir mountain ranges and comprehensive bird-watching and wildlife sections. Rich historical detail, entertaining anecdotes along with first-hand descriptions of everything from Soghdian ruins to playing the traditional sport of buz kashi or 'dead goat polo', bring the country alive.

Synopsis:

The most detailed guide to Tajikistan, featuring both detailed trekking routes and little-known Silk Road sites.
