The Tajikistan-Uzbekistan 11-Day Tour is a discovery of the beauty that both nations have to offer. Travel mountainous roads from Tajikistan’s capital city, Dushanbe, to small-town Penjikent before crossing into Uzbekistan for time in Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. City tours, a detour to ancient Sarazm and a mountain stay at gorgeous Seven Lakes await you along the way.
Tajikistan and Uzbekistan are united by similar customs, a shared history under Soviet rule and a common border where country boundaries feel blurred by sizable minority communities that spill over onto either side. Despite these bonds, the countries maintain distinct identities shaped by separate languages, natural resources and complicated geography that continues to shape both nations to this day.
