There are no compulsory immunisations for travelers to Tajikistan but you should be up-to-date on Typhoid Tetanus Polio and Hepatitis A. Malaria is present in some parts of Tajikistan which is why we advise you consult with your local GP or travel specialist about the most appropriate vaccinations and preventative treatments.

Cultural Sensitivity

While on our trips, you will often meet local people who have unique traditions and customs. We ask you to be respectful and show them respect. Your guides and tour leaders will always be in a position to guide you in the right direction.

It is first important to note that Central Asia has a more flexible attitude to Islam than its neighbours in Pakistan and Afghanistan. However, it should be noted that it is technically an Muslim area, so some caution is recommended at certain locations. T-shirts and shorts that are long can be worn by both genders in the city, but when visiting mosques that are active, all visitors should wear pants which are shorter than the knee and tops that cover shoulders. Also, a headscarf is advised for women. This tour takes us to remote locations that aren’t usually frequented by tourists. The locals are modest in dress so it is highly likely that you’ll feel more at ease wearing conservative clothes.

Language & Religion

Tajik is the official language of Tajikistan. Russian is still routinely used in business and communications.

The majority of people are followers of Sunni Islam. A small number of people are followers of Russian Orthodox, Catholicism and Buddhism.

Drinks and food

The tour is focused on meats and soups. In remote and higher altitude places vegetables can be difficult to find. However, there are plenty of dried fruit and nuts you can try.

The alcohol options are limited to beers or vodka. Anyone looking to sample other drinks – like Scotch or Gin should buy it at no cost and carry it along. It can be difficult to find mixer drinks , such as tonic water.
