Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast - Tajikistan

Asia-Tajikistan-Khorog This is the main town and capital of the Pamirs area in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast which a permit is needed for. This area is full of irrigated villages deep within dramatic rocky valleys with snow capped mountains surrounding the area. Sure makes dramatic scenery . I spend 6 days travelling from the border with Kyrgyzstan to Dunshanbe travelling though this area by road. Tough at times due to the conditions of the road , but certainly spectacular in parts. Stayed in many home Stays as there is very poor tourist infrastructure in this area. This area is also a World Heritage Site 

A very helpful Post lady helped me as best she could with the limited stamps available at the Post Office. The outside still reminded me of a typical Russian Post Office.
