Qalaikhumb (Kala-i Khum) villages hit by shells/bullets (Pamir Highway)

Postby Christian77 » Sun Mar 08, 2020 6:55 pm

Two villages near Qalaikhumb were shelled and hit by bullets from the Afghan side of the river yesterday. https://www.ozodi.org/a/30475846.html

This is the second time this has happened in the last 6 months. Nobody was killed, but some houses and building were damaged.

Qalaikhumb often serves as a stop-over on the drive from Khorog to Dushanbe. If you are a cyclist, assume that Tajik security forces would probably rather you not camp in this area. Stay in the town itself in a guesthouse, or cycle further out of town...

Was meant to go with cyclists but just doing 10 days in a jeep and made sure there is a fair amount of hiking..
