Tajikistan & Uzbekistan 2010

In July we visited Tajikistan to hike in the Pamir Mountains. We flew through Riga, Latvia and stayed overnight and then onto Dushanbe, Tajikistan. After a day of sightseeing we traveled by road to southern Tajikistan over 3 days to Khorog. From there we traveled another 2 days along the Tajik-Afghan border along the Wakhan Corridor and then into the Alicur Mountains near Bulunkul. We had great views of mountains, wildflowers and marmots before returning to the road at Batchor. The next day we had a spectacular flight through the Pamir Mountains from Khorog back to Dushanbe. From there we flew north over the Fann Mountains to Khojand near the Uzbekistan border. We traveled by road to Tashkent to catch an overnight train to Bukhara and visit the mosques. From there we traveled by train to Samarkand and revisit sites we had seen in 1994. Finally we traveled back to Dushanbe by road to catch the flight home.
