The central Pamir (Badakhshan) occupies almost half of modern Tajikistan, a total of 63,700 square kilometers. The Tajik’s call this region Po-i- Mir the foot of King and also the second version Bom-i-Dunyo, the Roof of the World. Merchants and traders have been traveling by road across the Pamir for centuries. Unlike trading routes across steppe, which form a complex web, the mountain tracks followed a fixed route, passing along valley floors. This tour follows the route from Khorog to Murgab, which was once the Shugnon branch of the ancient Silk Road. Apart from trade caravans and military units, missionaries and pilgrims passed along this road giving it the name Road of Ideologies. Archaeological studies reveal the variety of pre-Islamic religions of the people of Badakhshan, who worshipped fire, the sun and the spirits of their ancestors, and practiced a Badakhshan version of Buddhism.
