Health and Vaccinations

Tourists visiting Tajikistan don’t need to get immunized, however they should be vaccinated in Typhoid and Tetanus in addition to Polio, Hepatitis A and Polio. Malaria can also be seen in Tajikistan and it’s a good idea to consult your physician for guidance on immunisations.

Cultural Sensitivity

You will often interact with locals, each with their own distinctive customs and traditions. Therefore, we ask you to be considerate and to show them respect. Your guides and tour leaders will always be able to give you advice accordingly.

One thing to remember about traveling through Central Asia is that most areas, specifically the cities and towns, have a much more laid-back attitude to Islam as compared to their counterparts to the south of Afghanistan and Pakistan. However, it should also be kept in mind that it’s technically an Muslim region , and thus a little bit of caution is required in some areas. Long-sleeved shirts and shorts are suitable for men and women in the city, but in the case of visiting any mosques active, everybody should wear trousers which are shorter than the knee and tops that cover shoulders. A head scarf is also advised for women. This tour takes us to remote locations that aren’t normally visited by tourists. Locals are extremely modest in their attire and you’re likely to feel more relaxed wearing quite conservative clothing too.

Language & Religion

Tajik is the official language spoken in Tajikistan. Russian is used regularly in business and communication.

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

Drinks and food

The food served on the tour tends heavily on soups, meat and potatoes. It can be difficult to discover in remote areas, and at higher altitudes. There are plenty of dried nuts and dried fruits for you to try.

In terms of alcohol, the options are typically limited to vodka or beer. Those who want something else – Scotch or Gin for example – should purchase it duty-free and take it home. Mixer drinks like tonic water can be difficult to come by, even.
