Tajikistan is the quintessential country for eco-tourism. It has repeatedly ranked high as one of the major spots for green destinations around the globe. There are many opportunities to support local and community-based tourism, especially through home-stays in the rural areas. Home-stays allow villagers to open their homes and hearts to visitors who get to experience authentic Tajik hospitality.
For the more adventurous-types, there are also options for yurt-home stays with nomads on Tajikistan’s pristine plains. You will truly get to soak up the local culture and immerse yourself in the lives of the most hospitable people in their home inside a tent under the open wide sky.
