Wakhan Corridor

Instagram photos and videos at Wakhan Corridor

A young Pamiri girl from a little village on the border of Tajikistan and Afghanistan - instantly reminded me of McCurry's Afghan girl. @stevemccurryofficial #stevemccurry

#buzkashi is probably sport number one in #afghanistan. Here, in the #wakhancorridor in the extreme northeastern corner of the country, this tough game on #horseback is played at the #highaltitude #mountains of the #pamirs. The playball is a sheep's carcasse. #wakhan #travel #trekkinginthepamirs #outdoors #adventuretravel #adventure #offthebeatentrack #wanderlust

The Legendary Lada - thousand bucks well spent. Even though the old soviet car is common in this region, every local, border guard, and police officer runs over to check it out and offer to buy it.
These kiddos went from shy to "Photo! Photo!!" The one to my left was my best buds. Excuse me for my box socks, it was a chilly morning. #sargaz #溫泉佬 @davidchamm #afghanistan #wakhan #ipfanphoto
"Got a spare jack?" - A fellow Lada owner broken down on the side of the road waves us down asking for help fixing his car. Within twenty minutes three more cars of locals stop offering help. The guy turns out to be the border guard down the road who happily waves us through hassle-free.
Oh... Hi there Afghanistan 😊
I love the simple interactions every day on the bike. Saying hello to shepherds, either on the road or when they call down friendly greetings from the cliffs (how on earth do they climb up them?!) One evening we were camped on a little road, which we later figured out was a shepherds path, as they made their way home in the evening. A man stopped and invited us to his home for fresh milk, tea, dinner, and a warm place to sleep. We declined as it had been a long day and we were just about to climb into our tent for respite. Half an hour later we heard voices and a gentle shake on our tent… the lovely shepherd had walked back with hot fresh milk, a big round disc of bread, and home-made butter! He was so worried about two girls camping that he had walked from his home just to share dinner with us. Oh heart melting, humbling moments on the road. • • • • • • #sophiemerkens #photography #nzphotographer #cycle #cyclingcentralasia #centralasia #tajikistan #wakhan #wakhancorridor #goats #peoplearesogood #shepherds #humbling #share #tentwakeupcalls #whosoutside #thelovelyshepherd #freshmilk

Following a river up to some beautiful natural hot springs, with snowy Afghan mountains in the distance. Tajikistan. • • • • • #sophiemerkens #centralasia #tajikistan #pamirhighway  #wakhan #wakhancorridor #roofoftheworld #highaltitude #cycle #cycletouring #travel #nzphotographer
One of aspects that caught me off guard about Tajik people was their level of hospitality and random acts of kindness. Being offered bread and tea by a local villager en route a hiking trail along the afghan border  #tajikistan #langar #wakhan #tajikhospitality #centralasia #afghanborder #neverstopexploring
At 4000m, our trusty thousand dollar Russian Lada sits on top the wakhan corridor overlooking Afghanistan
wakhan corridor in the tajik pamir... afghanistan across the river, pakistan across the peaks!
Rough and tough Kyrgyz settlements in Wakhan corridor, Afghanistan.  The Wakhan Corridor (alternatively Vakhan Corridor, or Wakhan) is the narrow strip of territory in northeastern Afghanistan that extends to China and separates Tajikistan from Pakistan and Kashmir. The corridor, wedged between the Pamir Mountains to the north and the Karakoram range to the south, is about 350 km (220 mi) long and 13–65 kilometres (8–40 mi) wide. From this high mountain valley the Panj and Pamir Rivers emerge and form the Amu Darya. A trade route through the valley has been used by travelers going to and from East, South and Central Asia since antiquity. . . .  #afghanistan #gopro #snowboard #snowboard #silkroad #pure #nature #mountains #photography #landscape #road #photo #nikon #lowlights #centralasia #paradise #river #winter #spring #world #powder #high #highaltitude  #unique #perfect #hdr #high #river #green #aryan #love #cute #photooftheday Jonny
