Ishkoshim bazaar + Vrang Stupa 6 May share taxi?

Postby rfoltz » Tue Apr 18, 2017 5:26 pm

Hello,
I am planning to rent a taxi in Khorog for Saturday, May 6 for the day, first to visit the Afghan bazaar at Iskhkoshim in the morning then proceeding up the Panj Valley to see the Qalai Atashparaston and the Vrang stupa, returning to Khorog in the evening. The total cost is $150 US divided by however many of us go. Please get in touch if you are interested.
Cheers,
Richard

It sounds like you have reached out to a tour operator to arrange this. Have they confirmed that the bazaar will be open? It was closed for most of last year, apparently shutting down early in the season over security concerns.

Not a tour operator but a local contact in Khorog at the university. They told me the bazaar is open.

That sounds like good news! But just to be clear, your friend was talking about the Ishkashim border market, right? There's also a border market near Khorog that never got shut down.
