Hitchhiking in Tajikistan

Hitchhiking in Tajikistan was a wonderful adventure and we had a great time learning about local traditions of this unique country and being surrounded by the stunning nature.

Hitchhiking in the west of the country was childishly easy and people were always most happy to help you, invite you to their home or show you around. Thumbing across the Pamir Highway was challenging due to the bad road conditions and scarce traffic but it was made up by the incredible hospitality of the local people.

In total we covered in Tajikistan 1833 km and were picked up by 32 amazing people, which means that on average one driver took us for 57 km.

  • Iskanderkul Lake – Iskanderkul lake has it all and is a breathtaking landscape for those who make the effort to get to one of Tajikistan’s most hard to reach jewels. Set at 2195m above sea level, it is a great introduction to the Fann Mountains as the scenery along the winding dirt road is spectacular in itself.
