There aren’t any mandatory vaccinations for travelers to Tajikistan but you should be current on Typhoid, Tetanus Polio and Hepatitis A. Malaria can be found in certain parts of Tajikistan and we advise you to get advice from your local GP or travel center regarding the most appropriate vaccinations and preventative treatments.
When you travel with us, you’ll frequently interact with local people who have their own distinct traditions and customs. We ask you to be respectful and considerate to the locals. You can always count on your guides or tour-leaders to assist you.
It is first crucial to remember that Central Asia has a more open-minded attitude towards Islam than its neighboring countries of Pakistan and Afghanistan. But, it must be kept in mind that it’s technically an Muslim area, so an extra dose of caution is required in certain areas. While both men and women can wear shorts or T-shirts in urban areas, they should not wear T-shirts with long sleeves. However, anyone visiting active mosques should wear pants that are below the knees and wear tops that cover the shoulders. Ladies should also wear the headscarf. On this trip, we will be going to remote areas that are not frequently visited by tourists. The local people are very modest in their attire and so you are likely to feel more relaxed with your dress.
Language & Religion
Tajik is the official dialect of Tajikistan. Russian is still widely used in business and communication.
Most people follow Sunni Islam. A small percentage of people follow the religions of Russian Orthodox, Catholicism and Buddhism.
Food and drinks
This tour concentrates on meats and soups. In distant and higher altitude regions, vegetables can be hard to come by. There is an abundance of dried fruits and nuts available to try though.
In terms of alcohol, your options are mostly limited to vodka or beer so anyone wanting something different , like Scotch or Gin for example – should buy it duty free and take it home. It isn’t easy to locate mixer drinks such as tonic water.
