Murghob is situated approximately 280 miles (451 kilometers) east of Dushanbe, the country's capital.
Traveling in this region is about discovering new things, so be sure to hit the road and visit a couple of the other cities, towns and villages in the vicinity of Murghob.
Step back in time while you are visiting the area. Take the time to visit some of the castles for which this part of the world is well known. To experience the heart and soul of Murghob, why not call into the region's mosques.
Should you hear the call of the wild, follow the lead of active locals and spend a few hours mountain climbing or hiking.
Local cuisines are one of the keys to getting to know the area in which you are traveling. So, visit some of Tajikistan's bars, cafés and restaurants. Lagman (meat soup with noodles) and non (flat bread) are popular with tourists and residents. After the main course dishes are cleared away order the delicious puff sweet pies. To try a typical non-alcoholic beverage, enjoy the flavors of shirchoi (tea with milk).
Even the best vacation can't last forever, so when it's time fly home, head to the nearest major airport in Kashi, 150 miles (241 kilometers) away.
