Produktbeschreibung

The snow leopard is the symbol of Tajikistan's high mountains. It even has its own national day on the 3rd March. It is estimated that there are 250-280 of these shy but stunning creatures in the wild in Tajikistan. Most of them live in the Pamirs, but there are populations in Khatlon, too. The State Agency of Natural Protected Areas works to protect the snow leopards and their ecosystems, supported by international conservation partners and local NGOs.

Another highly prized wildlife sighting in Tajikistan is the Marco Polo sheep, named after the famous traveller. They are distinguished by their large size and spiral horns. Marco Polo horns are collectible as hunting trophies, but Tajikistan is re-investing the income from hunting permit sales into conservation efforts, and the Marco Polo population has consequently increased in recent years.

Wildlife lovers will also be glad to see ibex, markhor, urial, marmot, and even Bactrian camels in Tajikistan. There are opportunities for bird watching too, as not only does Tajikistan have many native species, but plenty of migrant birds cross through the country on their way from Siberia to South Asia.

Tajikistan: Feel the Friendship

The Republic of Tajikistan is nature's adventure playground.

Ancient Silk Road travellers including Marco Polo crossed the mountain passes and river valleys on their journeys across Central Asia. Rulers built mighty fortresses to keep their lucrative trading routes open, Buddhists and Zoroastrians erected temples and monasteries, and unknown artists left their mark on cliffs and rocks in the form of petroglyphs.

Tajikistan’s dramatic mountainous landscapes still beckon international travellers with a taste for adventure. The high altitude Tajik National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) includes unclimbed peaks and pristine lakes, opportunities to stay with nomads in their yurts, and rare snow leopards and Marco Polo sheep. You can traverse the Murghab Plateau along the Pamir Highway; it's renowned as one of the world’s greatest road trips.

The Committee of Tourism Development under the Government of Tajikistan is exhibiting at ITB Berlin alongside 16 tour operators and hotels from Tajikistan. The stand is supported by USAID and The World Bank Group.
