Publication Trekking in Tajikistan by Cicerone Press planned in November 2018

On November 15th 2018 publication is planned for the very first printed edition of the guidebook Trekking in Tajikistan. This project is coming to a full circle after 9 years of making the decision to dedicate my time to promote trekking in the mountains of Tajikistan. I teamed up with Christine Oriol, who is one of the trainers and co-founders of Women Rockin' Pamirs, to turn the earlier published PDF into a real comprehensive trekking guide. It will be published by renowned UK publisher Cicerone Press, known for their outdoor guides and particularly walking guides. The cooperation has been great and I'm looking forward to show this labour of love to the world. Pre-orders can already be made on Amazon. I will keep selling my PDF until November 1st for those who still plan some hiking adventures this year.


Women Rockin' Pamirs launch new website

Women Rockin' Pamirs is a great initiative that aims to train Pamiri women to become a trekking guide in their home mountains, the Tajik Pamirs. This month they have launched a new website full of information about the project. They have also started advertising two exciting new trekking expeditions, guided exclusively by female Pamiri guides who have completed their training. Some of them have already worked on high profile adventures, such as guiding National Geographic explorer Paul Salopek on his Tajikistan stretch of the Out of Eden walk.
