History of Exploration of Tajikistan

Арча | Archa Foundation

There is a rich history of exploration in Tajikistan and yet at the same time there are vast swathes of space here that are unexplored and untouched.  There are whole ranges of virgin peaks waiting to be climbed – to date unclimbed because the were too small (even at 4000+m) or too remote (even within 2 days travel of Dushanbe).

Much of the literature is in Russian, but there is a small body of material in English.  Given that one of our priorities as a charity is to see development in the tourism sector here and increased tourist foot-fall we are compiling a list of English language resources – both to prepare and inform as well as to whet your appetite for an adventure in Tajikistan!
