One of the major highlights of the Pamir Highway is the various valleys and villages that are just waiting to be explored. Since many of these valleys get such a low volume of tourists, no guidebook can prepare you for the adventure ahead. One of the most popular of these valleys for local and foreign visitors is the Wakhn Valley, located at the boarders of Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan. For me this place is perfect: the view of the mountains was breath taking, climbing to the fort challenged my fear of heights while allowing me to take in the history, and the beautiful B.B Fatima hot spring was the icing on the cake to a perfect adventure. The Pamirs - can you get any closer to heaven?
