OVERVIEW

A combined trip of a Pamir Highway and Afghanistan is an adventure in every sense of this word. The trip goes through the magnificent mountain ranges with spectacular landscapes. On this road trip that goes on the second-highest highway in the world, you will transform into the ancient world of the Silk Road. You will experience the hospitality that the modern world has lost. Filled with authenticity and history that goes back thousands of years, when traders of the silk road from China used to pass with their caravans through this road, you will witness the scene even today. The ancient forts that guarded this part of the silk road have been preserved and they are just spectacular. Part of the Pamir highway from Kalai Khumb town to Langar of Wkahan valley goes along the famous Panj river which is a natural border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan the one you will cross to get into Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, you will be guided by a local Afghani who has led tours for more than 10 years now in this region.
