The final stage!

The final stage of our trip led us from Darshai to Khorog. Half way we stayed in a literal 'home stay', where we were welcomed in the house of our hosts. Usually the home stays had a separate small building for guests. We thus can confirm the warm hospitality also in the Wakhan Valley and show you a typical, simple but very tasty dinner.

Following the Panj river crossing the one or the other green oasis in the otherwise deserted Valley we reach the end of our bicycle tour: Khorog.

There we went up to the second highest botanical garden of the world to get an amazing view over the small town and, after a visit to the local hospital, Andi happily enjoys his special 'gurr gurr' treatment.
