Interesting Facts:

Khorog

A small mountain-valley town, Khorog is the capital of the autonomous Gorno-Badakhshan (GBAO) region. It is strung out on either side of the dashing Gunt River and penned in by dry, vertical peaks. A few kilometres downstream, the Gunt merges with the Pyanj, marking the border with Afghanistan.

Until the late 19th century, present-day Khorog was a tiny settlement that loosely belonged to the domain of local chieftains, the Afghan Shah or the Emir of Bukhara. Russia installed a small garrison here following the Anglo-Russian-Afghan Border Treaty of 1896, which delineated the current northern border of Afghanistan on the Pyanj River. Khorog was made the administrative centre of GBAO in 1925.

Khorog suffered badly in the wake of independence (at the depths of the economic crisis money disappeared altogether, replaced by barter) but things have picked up in recent years. In 2003 the Aga Khan pledged US$200 million to establish one of the three campuses of the University of Central Asia in Khorog’s eastern suburbs. Khorog has one of the brightest and best educated populations of any town in Central Asia.

Shokh Dara Valley (Roshtkala)

The Shokh Dara Valley southeast of Khorog offers a fine overnight excursion from Khorog or a loop route option, connecting with the Pamir Highway and returning to Khorog via the Gunt Valley or the Wakhan.

Just before Javshanguz are dramatic views of peaks Engels (6507m) and Karl Marx (6723m), offering fantastic camping opportunities. One enticing trekking route follows an old 4WD track over the 4432m Mats Pass into the Pamir Valley.

Wakhan Valley

The Tajik half of the superbly remote Wakhan Valley, shared with Afghanistan, is a fantastic side trip from Khorog, either en route to Murgab or as a loop returning via the Gunt or Shokh Dara Valleys. The route’s many side valleys reveal stunning views of the 7000m peaks of the Hindu Kush (Killer of Hindus) range, marking the border with Pakistan, and there’s a thrill from knowing that Marco Polo travelled through the valley in 1274.

You will need to have Ishkashim marked on your GBAO permit to travel this road. The Tajikistan side is also the perfect gateway to the Afghan Wakhan.

Murgab

The wild-east town of Murgab is a day’s drive (328km) from Khorog. A former Tsarist garrison like Khorog but rougher around the edges, Murgab isn’t exactly charming but it is a good base from which to explore the eastern Pamirs. The town itself is half-Kyrgyz, half-Tajik (the surrounding communities are almost all Kyrgyz). On clear days, the 7546m-high Chinese peak of Muztagh Ata is visible to the northeast of town.

Electricity alternates daily between the two halves of town but is of such low voltage as to be of marginal use, so don’t expect to recharge batteries here.
