Tajikistan is possibly the most remote and least known of all the Central Asian countries. Half of this small landlocked country lies at over 3000m, and the beautiful Fan and Pamir Mountains offer some great trekking and hiking opportunities. Culturally the country is fascinating, with many different tribes descended from the Persians whose empire once stretched across Central Asia, and with a sizeable minority of Russians. The nomadic way of life is still pursued by many, and Islam is the dominant religion.
