Fire Worshippers Fortress 3 century BC. The high snowy peaks of the Hindu Kush are located in Pakistan, the foothills on the right bank are in Afghanistan, the braided Panj  river flows through the Wakhan Valley  separating Afghanistan and Tajikistan, the fortress is in Tajikistan. #architectural  #traveller  #travel  #flickreriagn  #ngaire hart  #tajikistan  #afghanistan  #ruins #zorastrian #roadtrip #pamirhighway #bucketlist  #zamriatishparast #zamriatishparast #ancientsite #historicalsite #marcopolo #silkroad #canon #wakhan #hindukush #wakhancorridor #arcitecture #fireworsipper #afghanistan #pakistan #panjriver #fortress #fortifications #geography #trekking
#tbt Tajikistan. Waving hello to the mountains of Afghanistan. For hundreds of miles, the river Panj is all that separates the two contrasting civilisations. . . . . #tajikistan #afghanistan #travel #wakhan #adventure #mountains #river #border #nature #explore #centralasia #pamir #discovery #history #landscape #wild #solo #solotravel
The Great Game Deals were made agreements signed between #britain and #russia in 1873 and #britain and #afghanistan 1893 (DurandLine) splitting the region of #wakhan making the #panj and #pamir #rivers the border between Afghanistan and the Empire of Russia in the South the Durand Line 1893 drew the border between #british#raj and Afghanistan The narrow strip of land between North and South created the buffer between Russia and Britain It became known as the #wakhan#corridor in the 20th century #et😎🌴3of4 Photo 1/2 credit to original owner Thank you
The #wakhan#corridor so close in #2 straight ahead from #china and yet so far Looking at the Afghan/Chinese border crossing which is closed is the Eastern end of the #wakhan #coridor the #wakhjir Pass The closure created a cul de sac now inhabited by nomads The corridor is 220 miles long and 8-40 miles wide British and Russian rivalry was big time during most of the 19thc in the #pamirs as well as on a personal level between the Russian and British Consul Generals in #kashgar The whole situation became known as the #great#game #et😎🌴1of4 The map thank you to original owner
Well, after a few weeks of looking at it, I've managed to get inside of it. Afghanistan.  I'm back out again now in Tajikistan after 8 days in Badakshan Province, mostly in the Wakhan Valley and Corridor, exploring the Hindu Kush. This is on the opposite side of the Panj River to Tajikistan, which I'd been traveling up and down for the previous three weeks.  I'd heard many stories from the Tajik side about when the Taliban had pushed right up to this town just two months ago, and I finally got the full story here. They got to within 5kms of the town with heavy fighting pushing the local police forces back. That was until the Afghan army was flown in from Kabul to the local airstrip and pushed them back over the course of two weeks, with the support of helicopters.  Since then the Taliban have been driven back past the town of Zebok which is about 40kms from Ishkashim and the western trained Afghan army are now stationed there incase they try to come through again. These are the guys in this photo. Such a difference to the local forces, kitted out with modern guns and all the gear, confident looking and with a real swagger, a spark in their eyes and firm handshakes. These guys are the business. A massive difference to the local forces. I initially just wanted a photo of the young Rambo lookalike on the heavy machine gun but when I asked, they all piled out the ute, shook my hand with big warm smiles and struck a pose for me. A pretty cool moment to experience in my life, I was thinking at the time...
Another flat tire, break pad change over 22hrs of rough Tajik roads with Afghanistan across the river and we are in Khorog. Adventure well underway. #dushambe --> #khorog #tajikistan #wakhan
