Wakhan Corridor Overview

The Wakhan Corridor is one of the most remote corners of the world, and has tremendous strategic importance, since it separates what was once the British Empire from the Russian Empire. It is the long finger of land that stretches from the Afghan heartland to the Chinese border. The Wakhan Corridor follows the Wakhan River, the main tributary of the Oxus River all the way to the Source of the Oxus, the Ice Caves in the Wajdir Valley at the far end of the Wakhan. Few foreigners have ever laid their eyes on these wild places. The Pamir Mountains that surround the Corridor are known as the "Roof of the World" and are home to the last nomadic Kyrgyz tribes in the world.

This is also where you will find domesticated yaks, wild snow leopard, Marco Polo sheep, and Siberian Ibex. The only way to visit the Wakhan is by organizing a two week long trek with yaks and horses to carry supplies, since there are no roads in the Wakhan.
