I don't think Khorog will be concerned, but Ishkashim may be different (http://asiacruisenews.com/news/Tajikist ... fghanistan ). If the way over the tajik Wakhan is closed one can also take the Roshtkhala road (we did it some years ago with a bike and crossed over Mats Pass to Khargush and further to Zorkul, the track over Mats requires some walking and crossing of a bigger river) besides main highway.
Let's keep the fingers crossed for the afghan Ishkashim district.

Hi

Zorkul was great, we did it on a 3 weeks cycle loop through the Pamir, including Bartang valley

The Wakhan side trip was 3 weeks, we cycled to Sarhad and trekked to the Little Pamir.
