On December 31, 2021 the Ministry of Digital Development of the Kyrgyz Republic puts into circulation a series of Kyrgyz Express Post postage stamps: "The Pamir Highway".
The Pamir Highway is a high-altitude road with a length of more than 1,200 km, connecting the capital of Tajikistan, Dushanbe, with the important regional center of Kyrgyzstan, the city of Osh. This is the second highest highway not only in Central Asia, but in the whole world. Some of the highway’s mountain passes are at an altitude of over 4,000 meters above sea level.
The Pamir Highway is a part of the historic Silk Road that ran from China to Europe. It has always played a huge role in the development of international trade and the exchange of cultural values between various peoples. In the 21st century, this road continues to play an important infrastructural role in the socio-economic life of Kyrgyzstan and other countries of the region. At the same time, the Pamir Highway attracts many travelers with its magnificent views and vivid landscapes. According to National Geographic magazine, the Pamir Highway is in second place in the list of the top 10 most beautiful roads in the world.
KEP is confident that this issue of postage stamps will contribute to the realization of the tourism potential of Kyrgyzstan.
