Primavera (Aprile - Maggio): Spring is a good time to discover the south because elsewhere the rains are quite frequent. From April to May, traveling Tajikistan is perfect for sightseeing and exploring museums. Hiking is possible but there are fewer opportunities than in summer. Temperatura media: 10°C – 26 °C
Estate (Giugno - Settembre): It is the best period to visit Tajikistan. You will be able to travel across the all country and it won’t be hard for you to find someone to share the ride along the Pamir Highway with. However, in Dushanbe can be very hot! Temperatura media: 13°C – 35°C
Autunno (Ottobre - Novembre): We travelled in October along the Pamir Highway and it was quite warm during the day but cold at night. Two days later another traveller remained trapped in the snow at one of the passes we had crossed. Be prepared to unpredictable weather and bring a warm water-proof jacket just in case. Temperatura media: 6°C – 20°C
Inverno (Dicembre - Marzo): There is less snow in Tajikistan than in the neighbouring Kyrgyzstan but it’s cold and some roads (one of them is the Wakhan Valley) can be closed. It may be hard to find someone to share the journey along the Pamir Highway. Temperatura media: -5 °C – 9 °C
