It is very difficult, not to fall in love with a place like Iran. Don’t be influenced by the negative things that you hear about Iran; just visit this beautiful place and see for yourself. I covered Iran in 2 parts –
Tajikistan is one of the most scenic countries of Central Asia. The breathtaking landscapes of mystical lakes and the Pamir mountains should be more than enough to send you into dreamland.
Some of my Tajikistan travel photos:
Our Tajikistan itinerary was of 9 days starting from Dushanbe – Khorog – Yamchun – Bulunkul – Murghab – Barchidev – Rushan – Dushanbe. This was a little tight schedule and I would advise to keep it 10 days for such an itinerary so that you also get acclimatized well in high-altitude places like Bulunkul and Murghab.
My Afghanistan itinerary consisted of four cities – Kabul, Bamyan, Mazar-e-Sharif, and Herat. Most of the places that I visited in this trip were in and around these cities.
We entered Iran through Afghanistan border town of Herat to Mashhad in Iran. So, our Iran itinerary starts from Mashhad and then proceeds to Tabriz in north-west region of Iran.
