Dushanbe is the capital of Tajikistan.Situated at the confluence of two rivers, Varzob and Kofarnihon.

Coal, lead, and arsenic are mined nearby in the cities of Nurek and Kulob allowing for the industrialization of Dushanbe. Among the attractions that can be found here is the Tajikistan National Museum is a museum in Dushanbe, the capital city of Tajikistan.

The Pamir mountains, or Pamirs, are in south eastern Tajikistan, near the border with Afghanistan.It is a mountain range in Central Asia formed by the junction or knot of the Himalayas, Tian Shan, Karakoram, Kunlun, and Hindu Kush ranges.Coal is mined in the west, though sheep herding in upper meadowlands are the primary source of income for the region. Lake Karakol is its main attraction.

Wakhan Valley
Wakhan Valley is a very mountainous and rugged part of the Pamir and Karakoram regions of Tajikistan. Historically the Wakhan has been an important region for thousands of years as it is where the Western and Eastern portions of Central Asia meet. Western Wakhan (Xiumi) was conquered in the early part of the 1st century CE by Kujula Kadphises, the first "Great Kushan," and was one of the five xihou or principalities that formed the nucleus of the original Kushan kingdom. Most travellers visit the Wakhan District a district in Badakshan Province.

Isfara is a city in Sughd Province in northern Tajikistan, situated on the border with Kyrgyzstan. Isfara is one of the oldest ancient towns in Central Asia, its first name was Asbara.

Some 20 industrial companies in Isfara produce electrical equipment, chemical and metallurgical products, construction materials, food products and others. Isfara is famous for its apricot orchards.

Penjikent is a city in the Sughd province of Tajikistan on the Zeravshan River, with a population of 33,000 (2000 census). Ancient Panjekent was a small but flourishing town of the Soghdians in pre-Islamic Central Asia. It served as the capital of Panch and was known as Panchekanth. It was once an ancient town in Sogdiana. The ruins of the old town are on the outskirts of the modern city. Visitors are amazed by Ancient Panjakent. The archaeological site of the ruins of old Penjikent - a walled inter-city which stood 2500-years ago - was once a Sogdian trading city on the Silk Road. Today, only ruins are left owing to the fact that the main construction material was clay-bricks.
