Most of the time we were asked If we are vegetarians
We Had No health issues at all.

Hope that helps.
Safe travelling!

Re: Landmines in the Wakhan Corridor?

...been there recently. There is a sign beware of landmines somewhere within the first 50 km behind the First Checkpoint.

They are from the tajik civil war in the '90s, I've heared..... You will understand that I did not look closely 😉.
