Cross-border market in Khorogh

Postby bwv812 » Wed May 25, 2016 5:25 pm

A more interesting question is about the border market that happens near Korogh. I've never actually heard a report from a traveler on this market—only about the one near Ishkashim—and I wonder if it's open even though the Ishkashim one is closed.

I was in Khorog last week, although the border market had been closed there was a strong rumour it was reopening that Saturday (9th July). Even PECTA seemed hopeful. I have no idea what actually happened as I had left by then.

This is just for the KHOROG market, Ishkoshim remains closed. Fwiw I think Ishkoshim is the only one that takes place in no man's land - the ones in Khorog and Kalai-Khumb are both on the Tajik side of the bridge, I believe.

I was in Khorog around the second week of August and the afghan market was open. Ishkashim one closed.
