The founders of LLC "Pamir Guides" are Saitaali Gaibuldaev & Kuban Kozubekov
We are native to the high plateau of Murgab and are part of the Kyrgyz minority living in these high altitude areas. After completing school in the provincial capital of Murgab we started working as drivers and guides.
This was done in cooperation with NGOs who set up a tourism development program. We have now more than 15 years of experience in guiding foreigners through the great mountains of the Pamir. We have trained extensively in tourism and have a strong understanding of the English language.
Our knowledge of the area, including every valley, village and historical spot is comprehensive. We have a close relationship with the local communities. This sense of community will give you a sense of being “as one” with this enticing landscape and its people. If you need any help or have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.
Customer service is our pleasure!
About Pamir Guides team
It is hard to imagine Pamir Guides, a successful tour operator in Central Asia, without acknowledging the founding fathers. Saitaali and Kuban, come from a little town called Murgab (3560 m) in Eastern Pamir.
They started their career when they were working as guides for ACTED (a French development organization) around the year 2000. Under the communist regime, Pamir was inaccessible to the outside world. After the end of the Soviet Union, it became possible attract many people to discover the landscape of the region.
Following the proposal, submitted to UNESCO in order to develop tourism in this region, Saitaali and Kuban became two of the first pioneers of tourism development in Pamir. Since then, they have turned their business into one of the most successful tour operators, not only in Pamir, but also beyond, across Central Asia.
According to Saitaali and Kuban, “Even though we have more than 15 years of experience in guiding tourists by now, we would like to acknowledge our partner Pamir’s Bridges, A Swiss Association for Foreign Aid and Development. We, all the team of Pamir Guides, highly value and thank Pamir’s Bridges for supporting our initiative.”
