Arrival into Tajikistan

The arrival into Tajikistan was emotional with almost dying on the Pamir Highway, getting stranded at the border for 5 days, almost getting tossed out at the border, and having to push one very old Soviet car across the ice.

The people of the Badakshan have to be some of the most hospitable and generous people we've met so far.  We were invited into people's homes, stayed with local families, attended a wedding, volunteered at a school, all for starters.

You go to Tajikistan for the scenery and it is breathtaking with Afghanistan just across the raging Panj River, which provides a natural barrier between the two countries and of course the mountains, which are the Pamirs, Alay, Tian Shan, and the Hindu Kush.
