MARCO POLO – BRAND OF TAJIKISTAN
Currently, in Tajikistan, the number of Marco Polo sheep, which most tourists call “Tajik handsome” because of the beauty of their horns, has increased by 1,500 heads, their total number is 26,483.
Tajikistan is a unique tourist attraction of our time, since it has a great cultural and historical heritage, distinctive culture, favorable geographical location, a variety of natural landscapes, recreational areas, flora and fauna.
The Marco Polo ram is rightfully considered one of the finest animals and one of the best hunting trophies. He lives at such heights that not every hunter can do. But those who want to get this trophy are not decreasing – last year Tajikistan saw 123 hunting licenses.
