Pamir and Tien-Schan are the largest mountain massifs in Central Asia. The place in the center of Eurasia is the center of the mixture of contrasts and cultures. One thousand years ago a branch of the Great Silk Road ran here. Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan got their independence from the once-great country more than 20 years ago. What has changed during these years? How do you live in these regions? And what do these countries look like now? You can answer these questions after seeing everything with your own eyes. Lake Issyk-Kul, surrounded by snowy mountain ridges, will pamper you with its landscapes and fresh sea air. Pamir Route is the highest road in the entire territory of the former Soviet Union, its passports are currently on the heights of 4500 above sea level. In the middle of the 20th century, the riders who have mastered this route three times have received a medal. Now the situation has changed — the road has improved, there are even tarmacs in the different areas, but the route is still beautiful, exotic and dangerous due to its remoteness and the rough unpredictable nature of the high alpine region. The Wachhankorridor is a mountain valley of the upper stream of the Pandsch River, here runs the border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan, as well as the border between two mountain massifs — Pamir and Hindu Kush. The Wachhantal was crossed by the famous Venetian traveler Marco Polo on his way to China. Pamir\\\'s rich colors, Asian hospitality and national cuisine will leave you with unforgettable impressions.
