Informations Tajikistan

About half of the 143,000 km² of land are located at over 3,000 m above sea level, only about 7% of the total area under 1,000 m. The highest mountain is the Pik Ismoil Somoni with 7.495 m. The country is bordered by Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and the People's Republic of China. In the west, the Pamir dominates the land and in the north extends the mountain range of the Alai. Due to the altitude, the arable use is only very limited possible, therefore mainly extensive livestock is operated.

 

The climate is continental with hot summers and cold winters, only in the few low-lying areas prevails rather humid, subtropical climate.
