Photographer's Note

Silkroad travels: Pamir
On our way to Alichur we camped at 4200 m alt. not too far from Chukur kul, a salt lake. We could be sure to be alone, undisturbed by curious bystanders or sheperds. According to the books Snow leopards and wolves would be a problem. But to us the Pamir high plateau appeared completely shot empty except for the Longtail marmots, hares and some small birds.

The salt lake is blue because devoid of algae. Lakes of cold steppes usually hold few living organisms, being frozen completely in winter.
