The Afghan Wakhan Corridor

Afghanistan’s remote and desolate Wakhan Corridor is called the “roof of the world” by the local people who live there. It’s located in the far North-East corner of the country, surrounded on three sides by Tajikistan, Pakistan and China. The Wakhan is incredibly cut-off from the rest of Afghanistan. Squeezed between the Pamir and Karakoram Mountains, Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor is a political creation, formed during the Great Game in 1893 by the Durrand so-called agreement between Afghanistan and the then British Empire to serve as a buffer between Russian Turkistan (present-day Tajikistan) and British India (present-day Northern Pakistan).

There are literally no government services, large parts of the region have no roads, and people are basically living on their own in the mountains. The area is inhabited by two main ethnic groups, the Wakhi and the Kyrgyz. The Wakhi often have two homes, one for winter and one for summer months, made of stone.

Do this because

  • Visit the Wakhan’s main attractions including trade route along the Silk Road on your own or with a small group tour
  • See the beautiful mountainous sight-seeing including trek and camping in Wakhan
  • Stroll through the Wakhan and Bartang Valley to admire the nature and wildlife
  • Trek or Jeep drive to Chaqmaqtin Lake
  • Take some nice pictures from the Wakhan’s settlements
  • Expert local guide with an unrivalled knowledge of Afghanistan and its treasures

What to expect
