Until the early 1900s, Dushanbe was a small village in the west of Tajikistan, near the Hisor mountains.
Today it’s the seat of Tajiki government and a leafy university town. Filled with classical Russian-influenced architecture, museums and parks, the city also lays claim to the biggest library in Asia, and the tallest flagpole in the world.
Leading out of Dushanbe, the Pamir Highway is a spectacular mountain road that covers much of the western Himalayas. The scenery undulates from craggy mountains – many over 7,000 metres above sea level – to lush, green valleys and lakes.
