The Pamir Highway and the Wakhan Valley – the 2 top must-have-seen-sights inTajikistan. High altitudes, few infrastructure and rather degraded roads. Without that – no fun on the top of the world. Sorry for that.
After having driven more than 8000km thru rather flat land we reach Kyrgyzstan. Famous for not having too much plains. Just mountains – up to more than 7000m altitude – among them Pic Lenin. And winding roads – leading up to passes of nearly 4000m.
