Tajikistan 2019

Tajikistan is one of the "Stans" located in Central Asia. I took a tour that followed a portion of the Pamir Highway, famous as one of the highest highways in the world. We drove through rugged country on a narrow road that was often gravel, with lots of ups and downs. Much of the time we were in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (seldom visited by tourists); eventually we made it to Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan. Follow along with me on my journey.

The scenery is often stark like this; no trees and very little green.

A biker, and we saw many of these, much to our surprise; this would be a super tough ride.

More mountain scenery, which I found to be quite lovely.
