Descendants of the Ancients

Wakhan valley is a mountainous part of the Pamir and one of the most interesting places in Tajikistan. It contains monuments related to different epochs and cultures. Such a pity that usually tourists hurry up to see other sights and don't stay here for long.

    Most beautiful.
    Some photos are shot from the village Langar.
    Quite touristic in summer, because this valley is okay with a 4WD and is not a dead-end, unlike other valleys. It goes up to Murgab, down to khorog (sort of).
    People lucky enough to own a car and/or a decent house try to make a bit of money with tourists in summer, but summer is short.
    Bridges with Afghanistan, across the river, are very scarce.
    I would like to see what it is like in winter-time.
