#myths of #chapursan  Pursuit by #white_saint  Centuries ago, the redeemer of ancient Chapursan village was coned by cunning, disobedient and dishonest villagers that they were being attacked from outside of the valley. The saint on the white horse travelled down from the head of the valley, modern day #sost, up to #irshad_pass (modern day Pak-Afghan border) to see whether attackers could reach the villagers from any side, but no one was coming from either side.  Even today, near #sher_i_sabz, one can witness the impressions left by feet, knees and elbows of the white saint on a stone where he offered a prayer, valley considers "#Osthoon" a holy place, with which several myths and legends are associated.  Even the place where white saint placed his horse's saddle is also a walled shrine near #kirmin.  Just off the #kkh, west of Sost town, the white saint grasped a stone with 3 fingers; the symbol of that action is still present there today in a walled shrine called "#Punja_Shah", and from which oil has been exuding for years. 📸 Photo Courtesy: Rahat Latif  #bonaventures #travelutions #sleeplowclimbhigh #noracesgoplaces #exploringtheunexplored #pakistan #tourism #travel #wilderness #wakhan #karakoram #destinationpakistan #itsbeautifulitspakistan #mountaineering #climbing #expedition #trekking #hiking #itsgoodtoknow #doyouknowthat

Pamir - Wakhan Corridor, Badakhshan Afghanistan. This one of the greatest places I've explored. Great people, unique culture plus the most soothing and enchanting place to be in. Wakhan Corridor separates Pakistan from Central Asia and connects Afghanistan with China in the Extreme North East at Wakhjir Pass. The Durrand Line starts at the Pass and ends in the south at Nimroz. This Durrand Line was demarcated between Emir of Afghanistan and British Empire during the Russio-Anglo 'Great Game' of 19th Century. There is no demarcated border here and you can easily land in Tajikistan as terrain of Upper Chitral, Badakhshan and Central Asian States are very same.  Although very remote and challenging to reach, it's one of the last untouched treasures on The Earth. This was my most toughest yet memorable hike.  #pakistan #afghanistan #centralasia #tajikistan #wakhancorridor #wakhan #pamirs #broghil #chitral #gilgitbaltistan ##natgeotravel #natgeotravelpic #natgeolandscape #hindukush

Wakhan Valley is a natural corridor and an artificial politically created extension of the Afghan State dating back in the 19th century. Its aim was to prevent common borders between the British Empire (Pakistan) and the Russian Empire (Tajikistan). It happens to be also one of the planet's most stuning wild beauties. The picture is taken from the Tajik side with the Panj River (ancient Oxus) and the Hindukush Range on the backgound. #wakhan #wakhanvalley #wakhancorridor #panj #panjriver #hindukush #hindukushmountains #hindukushrange #tajikistan #tajik #afghantajik #afghanistan #oxus #oxusriver #bactria #pamir #natgeo #natgeonature #natgeolandscape #natgeowild #travelpix #travelpics #amazingmountains #wildbeauty #wildnature #lonelyplanet #tripadvisor
