A Balance of Sky and Snow
Some people like souvenirs that are derived from a local culture, others prefer to have a focus on the natural force that are in play in a certain region. In the case of this souvenir from Tajukistan, this rings true for the latter as there is a seamless use of colors and tones. There is a gorgeous balance of sky, weather and snow covered mountain peaks. This helps to provide a fairly well rounded picture for someone who lives far away from this type of reality yet would like to feel connected to it. This is a kind of sight you can only find in places like this one or in the Himalayan mountains which are an integral part of this site. In this part of the world, nature rules and as men and women approach this natural setting, they need to act their part as if they were attending a solemn ceremony. It is also not a bad magnet to get if you find yourself longing for the awe-inspiring landscapes of Tajikistan. It is also sure to make for a great conversation starter.
Pamir Mountains in Focus
Never you will be nearer the sky than when visiting Pamir mountain, if you dare climb these mountains in Tajikistan. It is no wonder, as they bring together the Himalayas and the Hindu Kush among other mountain ranges. This is a site preferred by the most daring climbers attracted by the steep slopes and the unbeatable heights.
This region has been key in the trading business in the past, specially because it was located on the Silk Road. Due to its strategic location, it has been the battlefield of many wars such as Tajikistan Civil war, when the Chinese and the Soviet Union disputed the control over this area.
Tfay, the traveler can admire the breathtaking landscape, and wander around Pamir National Park. Not only the traveler can climb the mountains, but also can hire an airplane to see the high peaks from above. The experience is certainly beyond possible verbal description. The best you can do is take this travel souvenir home so that your loved ones can grasp something of what Tajikistan is about.
