The New York Times listed Tajikistan in the list of the top 52 destinations to visit in 2020.
"This landlocked country in Central Asia is becoming a prime spot for hiking, whitewater rafting and climbing, even though it’s one of the least visited countries in the world. With little internet access and a developing infrastructure, it’s pure off-the-grid travel — at least for now. The Wakhan Valley is a rugged region that sits mostly in northern Afghanistan but stretches into Tajikistan. Reached via the Pamir Highway, this area offers access to an ancient Silk Road fortress in Namadgut, where you can bathe in natural hot springs, climb the rocks above the city of Langar to discover ancient stone carvings, explore the fascinating mix of cultures, or gaze at the Milky Way from the mountains of Murghab. (The tour company Remote Lands offers an itinerary — the Pamir Highway Road Trip — based on this dramatic route.) With 2020 comes greater accessibility: a further easing of visa restrictions, new flight connections with Somon Air and additional bus service on fresh highways connecting major towns. Hilton also recently debuted a flagship property in the capital, Dushanbe, the first of 10 new hotels opening across the country." - writes DANIEL SCHEFFLER on The New York Times.
