Pamir Lodge Khorog Reviews
What a wonderful place! Jul 06, 2010
This modest lodge was set up by Dr Ali Muhammed Rajput in order to fund a local Ismaili prayer and meeting hall, which is on the grounds as well (don't worry, Ismaili prayer houses don't have a call for prayer five times a day). The Pamir Lodge is the only true backpacker accommodation in the entire Pamir region. A great place to meet other travellers or to wind down for a couple of days.
Sleeping costs $6 per person in a room (2 per room, mattresses on the floor) or $5 per person on the verandah or camping. Breakfast or dinner are available at extra cost (and highly recommended as the home cooking of the owner's wife is wonderful).
Facilities are very basic. There are Western style toilets behind the accommodation building. There is no running water though. This means that there is no shower, though it is possible to have a bucket shower (at no extra charge). They only heat the water in the mornings and in the evenings after prayer.
The lodge only has 5 rooms, though a second accommodation building is being built at present.
For vibe and sheer uniqueness, this place is highly recommended!
