About Pamir Gudes team
It is hard to imagine Pamir Guides, a successful tour operator in Central Asia, without acknowledging the founding fathers. Saidali, Kuban, and Mendibai coming from a little town Murgab (3560 m) in Eastern Pamir. They started their career when they were working as guides in ACTED (a French development organization) around 2000s. Under the communist regime, Pamir was inaccessible to the outside world. After the end of Soviet Union, it become possible attracting many people to discover the region’s landscapes. Following up the proposal, submitted to UNESCO in order to develop tourism in this region, Saidali and Kuban became one of the first pioneers of tourism developing in Pamir. Since then, they have turned into one of the successful tour operators not only in Pamir but also beyond, across Central Asia.
