Tajikistan's GBAO Region – an Incredible Place

Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Tajikistan, Environment, Language, Travel

In the last few weeks Global Voices has published and republished several articles about the unlawful arrest of our community member Alexander Sodiqov. Those pieces are here [1], here [2], here [3] and here [4].

But the Pamir region (known administratively as Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region, or GBAO) where Alex was conducting academic research [5] is not all politics and persecution. 

The following video reportage, brought to Global Voices’ attention by its creator Miles Atkinson, is a useful insight into the natural, cultural and linguistic diversity that define GBAO. Thanks, Miles!
