Distance / 距離: 47.27km
Time / 時間: 4h 26m
Average speed / 平均速度: 10.6km/h
Distance to date / 今日までの積算距離: 3557.9km

English Summary: Bad sleep because of dusty hut, noisy rats, and the altitude (4200m) waking me up gasping. Sandy roads again. Khargush military checkpoint did a complete search of my luggage (everything out and on the table). Weird feeling with Afganistan just over the river.



Sandy road between Pamir Highway and Langar in Wakhan Valley (Wakhan Valley, Tajikistan) / 柔らかい路面(タジキスタン、パミール道路とワカン谷の間の道路)


A moment of reflection in the upper Wakhan Valley, Tajikistan, with Afganistan in the background / 反省?(タジキスタン、ワカン谷)


Campspot 30km from Langar, with Afganistan mountains in distance / ランガール村まであと30kmの野宿(タジキスタン(向こうの山はアフガニスタン))

The land sure looks like a moonscape. How do people inhabit such wild and inhospitable places?

We really enjoy following you on your journey. You have covered the distance amazingly quickly.

Keep out of Afghanistan eh!!??
