Do you want to ride a motorcycle on the "Roof of the World"? 
Welcome to the PAMIR motorcycle tour in Tajikistan!!!
Tajikistan is the smallest country in Central Asia but it has the most amazing high mountains and truly hospitable people.
To see the Pamir region was until recently almost impossible because most of the Pamir was a closed border zone but now the Pamir is open and you have a truly unique opportunity to touch the silent valleys and mighty mountains including many breathtaking passes along the legendary Pamir Highway!
On our reliable motorcycles you will travel along the Afghan border and see the beautiful Wakhan valley. You will climb "Ak Baital” the highest pass (4665 meters) in Central Asia. 
You will bathe in the Bibi Fatima Zohra holy hot springs and visit the brightly coloured Fann Mountains where you will spend the night in a tent under a star filled sky in the fresh, clean air at "Alaudin International Mountaineering Tourist Center” (IMTC) and much more. 
Other accommodation will be varied using guesthouses and hotels but always with your comfort in mind.
The pristine lakes and mountain streams within the mountains & valleys will have your cameras clicking to keep the memories of this unforgettable tour. You will truly enjoy this unique & incredible country and its friendly people many of whom will be going about daily chores using simple equipment and donkeys.  
There is no better way to experience this beautiful pristine country than by motorcycle.

    Central Asia is the region with sharply continental climate. Day temperature during summer period is +25 to +40 degrees. After the sunset, temperature drops to +20 degrees, and to + 15 in the mountain areas.It is hard to predict weather conditions in mountain regions of Pamir and Kyrgyzstan. Sometimes it can be cold wind or rain and it might be snowing in Pamir. So you have to be ready for any weather conditions.


    Most of the roads of this tour are asphalt roads.  But Pamir highway section as Kalaikhumb - Khorog -Yamchun - Murgab   are very tough. Frequently there are  old asphalt with potholes, or  a corrugation in road. Due to harsh natural conditions, remoteness and lack of financing, these roads are not sealed and have never been repaired.The quality of asphalt roads in the mountain area is also inconsistent, as there might be construction works going or the road may be washed out due to heavy rains. In this case we will change the route. Please, be ready for that.

    Pamirs passes.

    Anzob pass (3372 m) 

    Hargush pass (4 344 m) 

    Nazaitash pass (4137 m) 

    Ak Baital pass (4655 m)

    Kyzyl-Art pass (4280 m)

    Coy Tezek pass (4271 m)

    Haburabot pass (3252 m)


    There are some very long distances as well as very short ones.  In  any case daily runs range from 7 to 9 hours of riding. So you have to be ready for early wake up and arrive late.


    We are trying to provide the most comfortable accommodation in our tours. But conditions and serviсe  may vary from  good to very low in Tajikistan.

    For instance, in such areas as the Fann Mountains,Kalaikhum, Khorog, Yanchun,  Murgab there might be no electricity or water supply. It is due to remoteness of these places. Despite the fact that we try to book rooms in advance there is no guarantee that our places will be available for us upon arrival. Be prepared for this, too.

    We will have a camp in the Fann Mountains and our company provides tents, mattresses. You should bring own sleeping bag. If you dont have own sleeping bag please  let us know. We will provide it. 


    Dinner and breakfast we have in accommodation places. Lunch in roadside cafe.

    Central Asian's food is  not very diverse. Usually it's meat and dough. But for you will be usfull to know names some of  most common dishes that are offered in road cafes and hotels.

    Lagman - is made from meat (mainly lamb), vegetables and long noodles. 

    Shurpa is soup. Typically, this is a beef or mutton broth with large chunks of carrots, onions, tomatoes and potatoes. Good dishes for lunch.

    Pilaf is rice, meat, carrots, onions.

    Manty is  stuffing beef with onions wrapped in dough.

    Kebab or kuyrdak is fried or braised beef or lamb with onions.

    Borsch is Russian soup. Meat broth with pieces of meat and with the addition of beets, cabbage, potatoes.


    The most common problem of guests is an upset stomach.

    It comes from the local uncommon food. Acclimatization of food takes several days. Some people have 2-3 days. Others can not get rid of this this until the end of the tour.

    Unfortunately, we are powerless here. 

    If your stomach does not absorb foreign food, then you need to follow a diet on a tour. (rice, potatoes, bread, maracons, tea)

    Or take the necessary medications.

    Mountain sickness.

    Pamir Highway passes at an average height of 3000 m. We will have a place for acclimatization in Yamchun. Sometimes people feel very tired or have a headache. 

    So you can bring the necessary medications.  


    People in Central Asia are very friendly and hospitable. But you should be aware of some rules of behavior. 


    - take pictures of border  posts, police, military people  .

    - appear in underwear in hotels and guest houses. Especially if there are local women there.

    - go to the toilet in the wrong place

    Concerning relationship between participants and organizing company during the tours we don’t support "I am the client, and you are an executive” or "the client is always right” attitude, since we believe that during the tour we are all one big team, where everyone respects, understands and helps each other.

    ANZOB TUNNEL in motorcycle motorbike tour jeep tour

    The Anzob Tunnel or Ushtur Tunnel is a 5,040 m long tunnel located 80 km northwest of Tajikistan's capital Dushanbe.
    The tunnel connects the Tajik capital to the country's second largest city, Khujand, travel to which, prior to the tunnel's construction, required travelers to cross the border into Uzbekistan in order to travel between the two cities. It is also a transit route between Dushanbe and Uzbekistan's capital Tashkent. Prior to construction of the tunnel, especially during winter, the threat of year-round avalanches led to periodic disruptions of commerce. Tunnel facilitates overcoming Hissar ridge and provides year-round road link between the northern (Sughd Province) and southern regions of Tajikistan. Earlier in the winter travel in the northern regions of Tajikistan through Anzob (height 3372 m) has been closed for 6 months. The tunnel has reduced the road between Dushanbe and Khujand by 30 km and travel time along the new route - dropped to 5 hours. The length of the tunnel more than 5 kilometers. As of May, 2014 the tunnel was still unfinished and the Iranian government and Tajik government had signed an agreement to complete the project by late March, 2015.
    Strategic Importance
    Its construction put an end to Uzbekistan's ability to halt traffic between Tajikistan's two largest cities. It marked the beginning of other major co-operative projects such as the Sangtuda-2 power plant.
    The tunnel is also said to be part of a planned road which would run from Iran through Herat in western Afghanistan and Mazar-i-Sharif and Sherkhan Bandar in northern Afghanistan to Tajikistan and from there up to China. The route has been named the new Silk Road.

The hot water comes from a fine stalactite cave, length of which is unknown.

    In the end of the 1st millennium B.C. because of the threat of military attacks from neighbors as well as for the purpose of controlling the traffic of people and cargos from Pamir to Bactria, India, Iran and back the construction of powerful fortifications began. The first of them was Yuachmun Fortress (also known as Kafyr Kala). The fortress was constructed in the 3rd century B.C. on the slope of the rock which was favorably during its construction. If seen from above the fortress has a triangular form divided into three parts. The first is the citadel with a bastion and barracks. They were walled and reinforced by towers. Two other parts are extensive platforms for conducting military actions. Each platform is surrounded with powerful walls reinforced by 36 towers with loopholes.The fortress walls are double, made from carefully processed tiled stones delivered by builders from different remote places. The outer 2 m-thick wall was made entirely from stones. The inner wall is also from stones which are only 50-60 cm thick.The entire fortress "is connected" by means of towers with embrasures cut in chessboard order and inclined downwards under a small angle so that the warriors could cover with their fire the entire valley. Some loopholes are directed both outside, and inside of the fortress which considerably increased its defensibility. The fortress amazes with its size. This powerful military structure had an exclusive significance for the local territory.

    AK BAITAL PASS in motorcycle motorbike tour jeep tour

    Ak-Baital pass is a high mountain pass on the border of the Republic of Tajikistan (GBAO region) and Kyrgyzstan at an elevation of 4,655-meter (15,270 ft) above the sea level. The pass is a part of the Trans-Alay Range and it’s the highest road pass in the former Soviet Union.
    Pereval Akbaytal is crossed by M41 road, known informally and more commonly as the Pamir Highway. This section of the road is barely passable. Throughout the area, the land is typically rugged and dry. This road is sometimes referred to as "The Road from Hell”. Construction and maintenance levels vary substantially along the highway. The roadway is paved is some areas, but is mostly unpaved. The road is heavily damaged in places by erosion, earthquakes, landslides, and avalanches. The road was built during Soviet times, to connect parts of their imperium in this region. Since the breakdown and Central Asia’s independence, not much coherent maintanance has been done to the road, only in spots, where damage has been caused by flash floods or scree.
