Health and Immunization

There aren’t any compulsory vaccinations for travellers to Tajikistan though you should have up-to date vaccinations for Typhoid Tetanus Polio as well as Hepatitis A. Malaria is found in a few areas of Tajikistan and we advise you to get advice from your doctor or travel clinic regarding the correct immunisations and preventative treatments.

Cultural Sensitivity

There are many opportunities to interact with localswho have their own distinctive customs and traditions. Therefore, we ask you to be considerate and to show them respect. You can always count on your tour guides or tour leaders to help you.

The first thing you should know about travel in Central Asia is that most regions, including the cities and towns, are more relaxed in their attitude to Islam than their neighboring areas to the south of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Central Asia is an Muslim region, so it’s crucial to be aware in certain regions. Although both women and men can wear shorts and T-shirts in the city, they should not wear long sleeves or T-shirts. However, anyone visiting places of worship should wear pants that fall below the knees, and tops that cover the shoulders. Women must also wear an asymmetrical head scarf. The trip takes us to remote locations that aren’t normally visited by tourists. The locals are modest in their dress and so you are likely to be more comfortable with your dress.

Language and Religion

The official language of Tajikistan is Tajik. Russian is still widely used in business and communication.

The majority of people follow Sunni Islam, with the small minority being followers of Russian Orthodox, Catholicism, Buddhism and Judaism.

Drinks and food

This tour focuses mainly on soups and meats. There are a few vegetables that are difficult to locate in remote areas or in higher elevations. However, there’s plenty of dried nuts and dried fruits that you can enjoy.

The choices for alcohol are limited to beers or vodka. Anyone wanting to try something else – such as Scotch or Gin is recommended to buy it duty-free and bring it along. Mixer drinks such as tonic water can be difficult to locate, however.
