Explore the Wakhan CorridorAfghanistan
Ditch any preconceived notions you may have of Afghanistan and step into the remote Wakhan Corridor. For 21 days you’ll traverse high passes, icy rivers and valleys on horseback, yak and your own two feet as you make your way through this rugged region. Ride through the Showr Pass, trek to Lake Zorkel and barter with nomadic Kyrgyz communities. On the last day, take in the spectacular Hindu Kush and soak in the hot springs of Sargaz. Not for the faint of heart, this is one tough trip, but its rewards are many.
About US$4560, including guides, all meals, local permits and accommodation.
You need to be fit – you’ll be hiking about 25 kilometres a day with a pack, reaching altitudes of about 5,000 metres.
