TAJIKISTAN

A journey along the Silk Road

Tajikistan is the smallest of the Central Asian republics, an exotic destination with a breathtaking landscape for our adventurers. Surrounded by Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan and China, the smallest of the former Soviet republics in Central Asia; Isolated for centuries and hardly visited by tourists, Tajikistan preserves one of the most mountainous and surprising landscapes in the world, through which the mythical Silk Road used to pass.

Confluence of East Asia and the Middle East and, therefore, a melting pot of cultures as are other countries in the region, the smallest and most unknown of the republics in the area mixes elements of its neighboring countries.

…where you will find the most remote and beautiful landscapes of Central Asia…

In this mountainous country we have the opportunity to stalk, wait and beat huge wild boars and to stalk in high mountains the best specimens of Marco Polo Argali, Ibex Pamir and Ibex from Middle Asia and Markhor from Bukhara.

Wild boar hunts can be organized with groups of between 3 and 6 hunters. The hunting date is from mid-November to March 30. You can also hunt by stalking and waiting, for this we recommend the months of June and July. We stay in comfortable camps with all the amenities located about 200 km from Dushanbe and at an altitude of between 1,400 and 2,500 meters.

For the hunt for the Marco Polo Argali and Ibex Pamir our journey begins in Dushanbe and if the weather conditions allow it, a domestic flight to Khorog would bring us closer to our destination, the Pamir mountains in the northeast of the country, near the border with China. In case of not being able to fly, we will go to our destination by vehicle. This hunt takes place at an altitude of between 3,500 and 4,500 meters. Excellent physical condition is not required but we do recommend a prior visit to your doctor to inform you of the altitude at which this hunt will take place. Accommodation is in solid, well-equipped houses with all the necessary comforts, with medical attention and good communication by radio and satellite telephone. The population of Marco Polo and Ibex Pamir in the area is high, with a high success rate. It is a stalk and the shooting distance is usually long, between 300 and 600 meters. In the last 20 years the success rate of this hunt has been 100% with an average of trophies ranging between 54 and 58 inches and several trophies per season between 60-62 inches.

An unforgettable Asian adventure to remember!

The Mid Asian Ibex can be found at lower hills and just four hours from Dushanbe. It can be perfectly combined with hunting the Marco Polo and Ibex Pamir. Normally, our clients stop around the Pamir Mountains to finish their program with this beautiful trophy.

South of Tajikistan, in the Khatlon and Gorno-Badakhshan provinces we find the majestic Markhor of Bukhara. Thanks to conservation programs, the population of Markhor has increased considerably in recent years, although it is still preyed upon by the snow leopard, which we will hopefully have a chance to find on our expedition.

If you are interested in combining several species, please contact us and we will inform you of the best options and dates to do so.
