Tourists visiting Tajikistan do not need to be immunized, but they should be vaccinated in Tetanus and Typhoid in addition to Polio, Hepatitis A and Polio. Malaria is also able to be found in Tajikistan and it’s a good idea to consult your local GP for recommendations on vaccinations.
You will often interact with locals, each with their own distinctive customs and traditions. It is your responsibility to be respectful and considerate to the locals. Your guides and tour leaders will always be in a position to guide you in the right direction.
The first thing to say about travel in Central Asia is that most regions, especially the cities and towns, are more laid back in their attitude to Islam than their neighbors to the south in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But, it must be kept in mind that this is technically considered to be a Muslim area, so an extra dose of caution should be applied at certain locations. Both women and men can wear shorts and T-shirts in the cities, they must not be wearing long sleeves or T-shirts. However, anyone visiting the mosques that are active should wear pants that are below the knees as well as tops that cover the shoulders. The use of a head scarf is recommended for women. This tour takes us to remote places that are not typically visited by tourists. The locals are modest when it comes to dressing, therefore it is probable that you’ll be more comfortable in conservative clothing.
Language and Religion

A majority of the population follow Sunni Islam, with the minority of the population following Russian Orthodox, Catholicism, Buddhism and Judaism.
Food and beverages
The menu on this tour tends to be heavily on soups, meat and potatoes. In remote and higher altitude places vegetables are difficult to find. However, there’s a lot of dried fruits and nuts that you can taste.
The choices for alcohol are limited to beer or vodka. Anyone who wants to experiment with other drinks – like Scotch or Gin – should purchase it duty-free and bring it with them. Mixer drinks such as tonic water aren’t easy to locate, however.
