Tajikistan is 93% mountainous. While my real dream is to drive the 800Km Pamir Highway into Kyrgistan( in Summer as it is impassable in winter), the lower Pamirs gave me a glimpse of beautiful mountain country. As someone who has traveled in the Himalayas, Andes, Alps, Karakoram and Tian-Shan chains,a trip through the Pamirs was a personal notch on my belt. The Pamir Knot is the confluence of the Karakoram from China, Hindu Kush from Afghanistan, Himalayas from India and the Pamirs in Tajikistan. The greatest mountain country in the world.
