Wakhan valley and the way to Dushanbe - Days 7 to 14 in Tajikistan.

From Bulunkul we slowly left the Pamir plateau after riding Khargush pass at 4,344 meters. Then we met the afghan border that we followed for a couple of days, facing the Hindukush peaks and a stunning mountainous nature.

The trail gets full of sand at some point and it's impossible to ride properly.

 

On the left side of the river: Afghanistan.

 

On the left Afghanistan and on the right, Tajikistan.
