Touring in Tajikistan

NOWRUS TOUR OF TAJIKISTAN - March 2016

 This itinerary is designed to show you the most interesting and worthwhile sites that Tajikistan has to offer, also allowing free time to wander around and soak up as much of the unique atmosphere as possible. Our first tour of Tajikistan is scheduled around the major holiday of Nowruz – Persian New Year. See the highlights of the capital city of Dushanbe, the northern city of Khujand and the amazing road that leads there through the mountains. See Soviet spa resorts, abandoned factories, scenic spots, and local homes. Be there when the biggest Buzkashi event of the year takes place and witness a sporting event that will top any other in the world for sheer fascination, interactivity, and violence (all part of the game). Contact Guidepost Tours for reservations and further information on travel to Tajikistan. (Koryo)
