Wakhan Corridor [17.-20.September]

The Wakhan Corridor is a border area between Tajikistan and Afghanistan, and unlike the high Pamirs, it is relatively densely populated and every square meter of arable land is used for crops. It’s hard to describe the beauty of the valley and the glimpses of the snow capped Hindu Kush peaks in Afghanistan and we hope the pictures will do some justice. Here we also stayed with local families at two homestays and enjoyed Tajik hospitality. Further encounters on the road were innumerable herds of cows, sheep and goats, friendly locals waving and smiling, and children running up to us practicing their English and asking for sweets, pens and balls.
