On The Silk Road From Pamir to Kyrgistan


On The Silk Road From Pamir to Kyrgistan (travelcode:1815)

Dates: 21.06.-28.06.2017 und 05.07.-12.07.2017


The Pamir (Badakhshan) occupies almost half of Tajikistan with an area of 63 700 km². The Tajiks call this region Po-i-Mir, the king's foot or Bom-i-Dunyo, the roof of the world. For centuries, merchants and rice-lovers had been touring the Pamir. Contrary to trade routes through the steppes, which formed a complex road network, the mountain roads followed a fixed route along the river valleys and bottlenecks. This tour runs along the route from Chorugh to Murgab, which was once the Shugnon branch of the ancient Silk Road. In addition to the caravans and the military forces, missionaries and pilgrims also took this path and named it the "path of ideologies". Archaeological studies indicate that the population of Badakh had long been before the Islam Religeonen. Most of them were devotees of fire, sun, ancestral spirits, and there was also a separate version of Buddhism in Badachschan.
