So Different Tajikistan – Le Théâtre de mon Cerveau blogspot de photos

Pamir has a special position. It’s the most high-altitude region not only of Tajikistan but of all the former Soviet Union. Its Gorno-Badakhshanskaya autonomous region occupies almost a half of all the country but its population is only 3% from all the republic’s one. Local citizens are officially considered to be Tajiks but in fact they are a group of peoples with their own languages, culture and even religion.

Khorog is bordering Afghanistan. The town is inhabited by representatives of all Pamir peoples. There are some universities here. Locals like to study, it’s a part of their religion. Though the local young people prefer English today, they are good at Russian too.

Tourists like this place, there are many hotels and guest houses in the area.
