The Pamir Highway

The Pamir highway is one of the biggest and greatest roads in the world. It begins in Afghanistan at Mazar-e-Sharif and ends in Kyrgyzstan at a place know Osh. Weaving between the scorching desert and the high mountains, the highway that currently forms the biggest percentage of people’s exploration joins Khorog (a small town that is situated at the heart of the Pamir Mountains) to Osh.

How to travel the Pamir highway

There are many ways to tour the Highway, and each one of them has their ups and downs. It completely depends on your personal budget and travel style.

Rest a 4×4

This option is highly recommended. Having your form of transport and here also the driver permits you to go at your pace and can even stop and take some photos as well as resting. Charges are calculated by kilometers covered and also pay each day some amount to the driver who is taking you. Such an offer is crazy and cannot be found in any other place. It is extremely cheap.

Public Transport

It is the worst means to travel the Pamir highway but very efficient if the individual is on a tight expenditure. If you are interested in the scenery that is present outside the window, this is the most recommended means. The transport is not comfortable since the roads are horrible and you end up spending a lot of hours on the road.

Hitchhiking the Pamir Highway

The main thing to always know is that the moment you get into Wakhan Valley, the majority of the traffic will come from people who rented 4×4 cars or shared taxis- definitely not the type of individuals who will just give a lift to hitchhikers. You can come across rides that will get you hitchhiking the Wakhan valley and the Pamir highway.

Self-drive

The best experience is when you own a car or motorcycle, and you drive yourself the Pamir highway.

Other experiences of travel include cycling and group tours, and tourist should explore the highways through any of these options that are available.
