This is where the trip got real interesting. On our fifth day on the road, we divert ourselves off the Pamir Highway (M41) and traveled down the border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan. Due to its ongoing conflict within Afghanistan, it was fascinating to see the beautiful mountains of the country, which is only separated by a river. I was basically a stone throw away from Afghanistan.
I wish one day i could set foot on Afghanistan and backpack there proper. In the mean time, I'm just gonna enjoy this stretch of the road along the Wakhan Valley.
