Health and Immunization

There are no compulsory immunisations for those traveling to Tajikistan though you should be current on Typhoid, Tetanus Polio and Hepatitis A. Malaria is present in some parts of Tajikistan therefore we suggest you get advice from your local GP or travel center regarding the appropriate immunisations and preventative treatment.

Cultural Sensitivity

While on our trips, you will often interact with locals who have their own unique customs and traditions. We therefore request that you be courteous and treat them with respect. You can always count on your tour guide or tour leader to help you.

The first thing to note about traveling in Central Asia is that most regions, including the towns and cities, are more laid back in their attitude to Islam than their neighbours to the south of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is a Muslim zone, therefore it is vital to be vigilant in specific zones. T-shirts and shorts that are long can be worn by both genders in urban areas, but in the case of visiting any mosques active, people should wear trousers that are below the knee, and tops that cover shoulders. A headscarf is also advised for women. In this tour, we’re going to remote areas seldom visited by tourists. Locals are extremely modest in their dress and therefore you’re likely to feel more relaxed dressed in conservative clothes too.

Language and Religion

Tajikistan’s official language is Tajik. Russian is used for business and communication.

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

Drinks and food

The food on this tour tends to focus mostly on soups, meat and potatoes. There are a few vegetables that are difficult to discover in remote areas, and in higher elevations. There are plenty of dried fruit and nuts to try though.

For alcohol, the choice is typically limited to vodka or beer. Those who want something different , like Scotch or Gin for instance – needs to purchase it duty-free and bring it out. Mixer drinks such as tonic water aren’t easy to find, though.
