📷@matthew.crompton - The #BartangValley is undoubtedly the most adventurous #bikepacking route across the #Pamirs of #Tajikistan. This section crosses the #murghabplateau before dropping down to follow the Bartang river valley itself, crossing side streams, landslides, and even sometimes bits of the flooded river itself.

Murgab// Мурғоб
The highest town in Tajik and former Soviet, 3650m. An utterly remote city sitting in the middle of nowhere. White and grey box housing gather around to form a complex, sitting right beside the mountain. Colour drastically converted from dark red clay to pale grey rocks, with the box houses perfectly blend in.

GBAO// Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast Region
The Autonomous Region was created in January 1925, attached to Tajik back in Soviet times. Occupying 45% of the Tajik area, there is only 3% of the total population living in GBAO area.
The highest point in former Soviet Union, at 7,495 meters, Lenin Peak/Ismoil Somoni Peak/Communism Peak is located in the Pamirs GBAO.

A Bactrian camel stoically endures Kyrgyz children as they play on and around the beast, outside of a Kyrgyz winter camp at about 14,000 feet in the Little Pamirs, Wakhan Corridor, northeastern Afghanistan. These woolly, double-humped camels are domestic relatives of the wild and critically endangered Bactrian camels of southern China and northern Mongolia. The humps store fat that the camels can use for sustenance and water in lean times. Camels are important as beasts of burden for the nomadic Krygyz, who use them for moving their yurts from camp to camp, and they are also symbols of wealth and status. Not long ago, Kyrgyz men took camel caravans in winter months down frozen rivers to the villages in the valleys, where they would trade yak butter, sheep and goats for wheat and other supplies with the Wakhi, the indigenous people of the Wakhan. I took this photo ten years ago, in January of 2008, during a month-long journey on foot through the road-less, frozen mountain world of the Afghan Pamirs, part of a several year project to document the peoples of the Wakhan-the Wakhi and Kyrgyz-their ways of life, their relationship to each other, to their environment and to the wildlife of the Pamirs. Despite the hardship, it was one of the most amazing trips of my life, and I had the incredible privilege to spend time with incredible and hardy Kyrgyz and Wakhi families who welcomed me into their yurts, huts and houses. Check out my feed @bethjwald for more photos from this series, which I will be posting through the week. #Afghanistan #wakhancorridor #Afghanpamirs #Pamirs #Kyrgyz #Kirghiz #camel bactriancamel #mountainculture #Badakshan #roofoftheworld #bamidunya #onassignment #centralasia #pastoralist #frozen #nikon @thephotosociety @ilcp_photographers @natgeocreative

A Kyrgyz boy keeps an eye on lambs and kids in a mud hut at his family’s winter camp situated at about 14,000 feet in the Little Pamir, Wakhan Corridor, northeast Afghanistan. The baby sheep and goats were born in late December and are too young to spend the winter days with their mothers and the rest of the flock as they forage for food in the cold and snow; instead, they are kept in the hut to stay warm and are returned to their mothers each evening to nurse. A small population of Kyrgyz live a nomadic life on the high plateau of the Afghan Pamirs, moving seasonally with their herds of yaks, goats, sheep, camels and horses; they depend completely on their animals for food, shelter, transport and as currency to trade for wheat, tea, sugar, salt and all other necessities of life; each individual animal is highly valued. The Kyrgyz live a hard life, particularly in winter, when temperatures can dip to -40 Fahrenheit and the wind blows almost constantly, but despite the many challenges, including increasing rates of opium addiction, the Krygyz are proud of their culture, their ability to survive and their freedom on the “Bam-i-Dunya” or Roof of the World. The photo was taken ten years ago today, during a hard, month-long journey on foot through the road-less mountain world of the Afghan Pamirs, part of a several year project to document the peoples of the Wakhan-the Wakhi and Kyrgyz, their ways of life, their relationship to each other, to their environment and to the wildlife of the Pamirs. The huge pay-off and privilege was being able to spend time with these families, some of whom I had met on previous journey. I will be posting more photos from this series – looking back ten years ago- through the week. #Afghanistan #wakhancorridor #Pamirs #Kyrgyz #Kirghiz #kyrgyzboy #lambs #mountainculture #Badakshan #yurtlife #roofoftheworld #onassignment #centralasia #hindukush #pastoralist #nikon @thephotosociety @ilcp_photographers @natgeocreative

A Kyrgyz woman cooks traditional flat bread over a fire of yak dung, while her young children drink tea, in a yurt at a winter camp situated at about 14,000 feet in the Little Pamir, Wakhan Corridor, northeast Afghanistan. On the shelf behind her are pieces of a recently butchered yak; in the large pot, she is cooking entrails. A small population of Kyrgyz live a nomadic life on the high plateau of the Afghan Pamirs, moving seasonally with their herds of yaks, goats, sheep, camels and horses; they depend completely on their animals for food, shelter, transport and as currency to trade for wheat, tea, sugar, salt and all other necessities of life. It is a hard life, particularly in winter, when temperatures can dip to -40 Fahrenheit and the wind blows almost constantly, and especially for women and girls. Girls marry young and the Wakhan region has one the highest maternal mortality (death in childbirth) rates in the world; there is also high infant mortality, especially for those born in winter. But despite the many challenges, including increasing rates of opium addiction, the Krygyz are proud of their culture, their ability to survive and their freedom on the “Bam-i-Dunya” or Roof of the World.

Kyrgyz girls in traditional red robes brave frigid temperatures and icy winds as they fill plastic jugs with water at stream near their family’s winter camp, about 14,000 feet in the Little Pamir, Wakhan Corridor, northeast Afghanistan. They will load them on their donkeys and return the half-mile to the camp, a cold but necessary daily outing. A small population of Kyrgyz live a nomadic life on the high plateau of the Afghan Pamirs, moving seasonally with their herds of yaks, goats, sheep, camels and horses. It is a hard life, especially in winter, when temperatures can dip to -40 Fahrenheit and the wind blows almost constantly, and especially for women and girls. Girls marry young, have almost no options for education, and the Wakhan region has one the highest maternal mortality (death in childbirth) rates in the world. But despite many challenges, including increasing rates of opium addiction, the Krygyz are proud of their culture, their ability to survive and their freedom on the “Bam-i-Dunya” or Roof of the World.

The huge pay-off and privilege was being able to spend time with these families, some of whom I had met on previous journeys, like these girls.
