Health and vaccinations

There aren’t any mandatory vaccinations for travellers to Tajikistan but you should be up-to-date with Typhoid, Tetanus, Polio and Hepatitis A. Malaria is prevalent in certain areas of Tajikistan which is why we advise you seek advice from your local doctor or travel clinic regarding the correct immunisations and preventative treatment.

Cultural Sensitivity

You are likely to meet locals, each with their unique customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. The tour guides and tour guides are always able to guide you in the right direction.

The first thing you should know about traveling in Central Asia is that most areas, specifically the cities and towns, are more laid back in their approach to Islam than their neighbours to the south of Afghanistan and Pakistan. However, it should also be kept in mind that it’s technically an Muslim region and therefore some caution is required in some areas. T-shirts and long shorts are suitable for men and women in the cities, but should you visit any mosques with active worshippers, all visitors should wear pants that fall below the knee and tops that cover their shoulders. Also, a headscarf is recommended for women. In this tour, we’re exploring remote regions not often visited by tourists. The people of the area are modest in their dress and thus you’re likely to feel more comfortable dressed in conservative clothes too.

Language & Religion

Tajik is the official dialect of Tajikistan. Russian is still widely used for business and communication.

The majority of the population follow Sunni Islam, with the minority of the population following Russian Orthodox, Catholicism, Buddhism and Judaism.

Drinks and food

The tour is focused on soups and other meats. In the more distant and higher altitude regions, vegetables can be difficult to come by. But, there is a wide selection of dried fruits and nuts that are available to try.

With regard to alcohol, the options are mainly limited to vodka or beer. Those who want something different , like Scotch or Gin for instance – needs to purchase it duty-free and take it home. It isn’t easy to locate mixer drinks such as tonic water.
