Tajikistan travel is enticing for alpine hiking, walking, rock climbing and fishing. Tajikistan is situated in central Asia and shares its boundary with neighboring countries of China, Kirghistan, Afghanistan and Uzbekistan.
The land of Tajikistan is home to snow clad mountains, arid and semi-arid deserts, long rivers carrying sparkling waters, diverse flora and fauna and simple nomads.

For Tajikistan travel it is crucial to carry a visa and a passport which are available at the embassies in Tajikistan. In order to enter at certain borders in Tajikistan, like the Gorno-Badakhshan border, it is compulsory for the tourist to acquire special authorization besides a valid passport. If you plan to stay in Tajikistan for more than three or four days, make sure to get the registration stamps from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or else you may be detained in Tajikistan for an indefinite period of time. However, if you are from Kazakhstan, Belarus, Russia and Kirghistan then you do not need a visa.
