Photographer's Note

Silkroad travels: Kargush pass
We left the last village (Langar in the Wakhan valley) to climb up to the Pamir plateau of Tajikistan. The road was steep and gravelly, no village came to sight for three days but the scenery changed every ten minutes. The view of the picture is (at about 3000 m alt.) in a Southwest direction into the Wakhan mountain range. On the other side of the Pamir river is Afghanistan, with a 5'576m nameless peak at the horizon (the 6320 m high Koh-e-Pamir is out of the picture to the left). This part of Afghanistan is not settled, not even by shepards.

In the workshop section I present another view from the ascension to the Khargush pass.
