Pamir Highway: Highlights from Tajikistan af Lene Kohlhoff Rasmussen

Tajikistan - Khorugh - Travel - Tajikistan

Course towards Tajikistan

On my long journey The Silk Road had I reached the Kyrgyz city, Osh. Here I was lucky enough to get in really good company with a couple of other individual backpackers: Ian, John and Sadaf. We all four had plans to travel along the Pamir Highway through Tajikistan, so we agreed to hire a 4 × 4 driver for the trip from Sary-Tash to Khorugh.

We were picked up by our driver, Tourot, about a day trip south of Osh in the Kyrgyz border town of Sary-Tash, which is little more than a few scattered houses situated around a major crossroads. To the right you can drive to Irkeshtam, which is one of the two border crossings between Kyrgyzstan og Kina The road on the left is a continuation of the Pamir Highway to Tajikistan.
