Trekking adventure in Tajikistan

When Christian told me about his plans to cross a remote mountain range in the western part of the Pamir Mountains without any support by guides or porters, I was instantly hooked. I had been to the Tajik Pamir years before and always wanted to return for a proper trekking expedition. Flushed with memories of glimmering turquoise mountain lagoons, ice-covered mountain ranges and the adventurous Pamir Highway – a dirt road only partly paved and scattered with giant potholes, that never drops below 3500 metres – I could not resist and booked my flight.
