Visit to Afghan Wakhan from Ishkashim

Postby Daniel » Wed Oct 11, 2017 2:28 pm

Just returned after a five day visit to the Afghan Wakhan. Great trip from Eshkashim to Sarhad e Broghil and a hike to Broghil pass. Had great luck of meeting Kyrgyz people in Sarhad e Broghil, they came from their village of Manora 7 days trekking on horse. I organized it via guide Hameed ([email protected]; also on facebook https://www.facebook.com/abdullhamid.azizi). He was great and we had an equally great driver.

It felt very safe, though there were some incidents around April 2017 when Taliban got close to Eshkashim. You need to check the situation before going. The Afghan consulate in Khorog can give some valuable information too. They process visas almost immediately. The visa there costs between $150 to $200 (if you are a US passport holder).
