Lakkon is a city and jamoat in northern Tajikistan. It is located in Isfara district in Sughd province. The jamoat has a total population of 5,514. One of the two largest psychiatric hospitals in Tajikistan is located in Lakkon.

We saw many children working in the city and the most incredible thing, they were happy. The people are the most important reason you should come to Tajikistan. Not mountains or nature, both of which are undeniably wonderful, not fresh food or the quality of fruits and vegetables during spring and summer.

Tourists who go there are tempted to visit the breathtaking landscapes and explore the limitless opportunities to spend time in nature, but who instead discover that the heart and soul of this country consists of its people and their hospitality.

You see mountains almost everywhere: even on the Dushanbe skyline. For a hiker, climber and other adrenaline junkies and nature enthusiasts, Tajikistan has a host of exciting activities on offer, be it trekking, kayaking, 4×4 driving, mountaineering and much more.

Before you travel: you didn't forget about travel insurance, right?

If you're so anxious that you forgot to take out travel insurance , don't worry, there's still time! Travel insurance , although not mandatory for entry into American soil, can be your best friend.

Although the independent Republic of Tajikistan is only 23 years old, Tajik civilization dates back 3,000 years. The main civilizations that existed in these territories, such as the Sasanian Empire, Chinese Civilization, Arab culture and religion, the USSR influenced the national identity of Tajikistan. There are many medieval mosques and Soviet-style buildings, monuments and remains of ancient cities throughout Tajikistan. So, for history and culture enthusiasts, Tajikistan is rich in both.

Dushanbe, Khujand and Khorog may not resonate as much in the minds of tourists as London, Paris or Madrid, but there are unique and charming features in many of the Tajik cities. You can always find museums, opera shows and theaters, but you can also discover traditional chai-honas (teahouses), Qalas (castles) and beautifully designed mosques and holy shrines.

The cost of living in Tajikistan is very low. A click on will show you that living in Dushanbe (which is the most expensive place to live in Tajikistan) is 2 to 3 times cheaper than other capitals in the world. Other Tajik cities are even cheaper. The best time to enjoy Tajikistan would be summer: the markets are full of cheap fruits and vegetables, which any tourist will appreciate.

We were there after a 7-hour drive from Osh in Kyrgyzstan, and it was a pleasant surprise despite the poverty of the people and child labor to see people living and smiling with so little, certainly a memorable experience for me and Lídia, who will mark you forever.
