Situated in Badakhshan in the heart of Asia, "The Pamirs" is an area of sky-scraping, snow-capped, majestic mountains, transparent clear blue waters of lakes and wide valleys and bone-dry deserts. For hundreds of years, people have called these high mountains "Poy-e-Mehr", the literal translation being, "the Foot of the Sun" or "Roof of the World".

An isolated beauty

 

The Pamirs are beautiful and isolated. But do not worry – there is public transport and PECTA can arrange a driver for you.

One reason why travelling in the Pamirs is so impressive comes from the opportunity to stay with local Pamiri families in a homestay.  The most up-to-date listing of homestays is found here on our website.
