The motorcycle adventure through the Pamir mountains of Tajikistan continues. After a night at Karakul Lake we head all the way back to Khoroch down the Pamir Highway where we take a left turn from the M41 Silk road into the Wakhan Valley. Again we're riding next to a wide river bordering Afghanistan. The road starts out a bit boring being tarmac,wide and when there is none lots of corrugations. We've been spoiled in the Bartang valley and I know it. Second half of the Wakhan is great, wild and at some point you could walk across to Afghanistan if you wanted to. Meet riders and cyclists along the way. In the evening reach the Pamir Highway again and start running out of fuel. Make it with the last drop to Alichur. Last ride through Murghab and past Karakul Lake again but this time straight to Kyrgyz. The sun is setting and those final moments in Tajikistan feel like something surreal. A special experience which I appreciated only more as time passed by. Already I started to think about time and unfortunately these were the final days of not thinking too much about time.
Enjoy this short motorcycle adventure documentary in Tajikistan. Put together with the video footage that I recorded back in 2014.
My name is Pedro Mota and back in 2014 I left the Netherlands on a beautiful Honda Transalp dual sport motorbike on a trip to the east end of Russia in Vladivostok. On the way there we would take a big detour through the Middle East, Central Asia and Mongolia. Little did I know back then that this would evolve into a years long motorcycle travel further taking me through Japan, Australia, New Zealand and the American continent.

Leaving Tajikistan - Tajikistan 4K Travel Channel
From Karakul to the Kyzyl-Art-Pass, which forms the border to Kyrgyzstan, it is about 60 km. After 10 days our time in Tajikistan comes to an end, but we continue our trip to explore Kyrgyzstan.
We leave the village at the Karakul, pass the cemetery and make a short stop to enjoy the panorama. Once again we see the turquoise-colored lake, with the snow-capped peaks behind, rising up to 7000 m.
After we had overcome the former crater rib, we pass a creek. Now at the latest, it becomes clear to us that this route is not suitable for large trucks.
Afterward, the road leads about 30 km along the Chinese border fence over the high plateau. At one point we can even see buildings on the Chinese side. We are not able to recognize, whether it is a village, barracks or a border fortification.
As the road leads uphill again, we know that we are very close to the border. The Kyzyl-Art-Pass is 4280 m high. It is better not to photograph or film the border posts. It could get rather unpleasant.
The closer we get to the border, the more intense become the colors. Rust red, sandstone and basalt grey rock layers run through the mountain slopes.
At the border, we meet our interlocutors of the evening before. They have to wait for a car from Kyrgyzstan because their vehicle is not allowed to leave Tajikistan. It has only one permission for the respective country.
We very much enjoyed Tajikistan, although, or because it is a wild country. But it has a unique landscape. The people are very friendly and above all hospitable. The rugged mountains and narrow valleys with the roaring rivers shape the country. In the Pamir, the plateau dominates with its herds of animals. The country will remain in our memories.

Von Karakul bis zum Kyzyl-Art-Pass, der die Grenze zu Kirgisistan bildet, sind es knapp 60 km. Nach 10 Tagen endet unsere Zeit in Tadschikistan, aber wir setzen unsere Reise fort und erkunden Kirgisistan.
Wir verlassen das Dorf am Karakul, passieren den Friedhof und machen einen kurzen Stopp um das Panorama zu genießen, bevor wir den Krater verlassen. Noch einmal sehen wir den türkisfarbenen See, hinter dem sich die schneebedeckten Gipfel bis 7000 m erheben.
Als wir den Kraterrand überwunden haben, passieren wir einen Bach. Spätestens jetzt wird uns klar, dass diese Strecke für große LKW's nicht geeignet ist.
Danach führt die Straße ca. 30 km entlang des chinesischen Grenzzauns über das Hochplateau. An einer Stelle können wir sogar Gebäude auf der chinesischen Seite sehen. Ob es ein Ort, eine Kaserne oder eine Grenzbefestigung ist vermögen wir jedoch nicht zu erkennen.
Als die Straße wieder bergauf führt, wissen wir, dass wir der Grenze sehr nahe sind, Der Kyzyl-Art-Pass ist 4280 m hoch. Die Grenzposten soll man besser auch nicht photographieren oder filmen. Es könnte ziemlich unangenehm werden.
Je näher wir der Grenze kommen, desto intensiver werden die Farben. Rostrote, sandsteinfarbene und basaltgraue Gesteinsschichten durchziehen die Berghänge.
An der Grenze treffen wir wieder unsere Gesprächspartner vom Abend vorher. Sie müssen auf ein Auto aus Kirgisistan warten, da ihr Fahrzeug Tadschikistan nicht verlassen darf. Ihre Fahrzeuge haben immer nur eine Genehmigung für das jeweilige Land.
Wir haben Tadschikistan sehr genossen, obwohl oder weil es ein wildes Land ist. Aber es ist in seinem Landschaftsbild einzigartig. Die Menschen sind sehr liebenswürdig und vor allem gastfreundlich. Die schroffen Berge und schmalen Täler mit ihren rauschenden Flüssen prägen das Land. Im Pamir dominiert die Hochebene mit ihren Tierherden. Das Land wir uns immer in Erinnerung bleiben.

Pamir Highway in Dushanbe, Tajikistan
Pamir Highway in Dushanbe, Tajikistan
The M41, known informally and more commonly as the Pamir Highway is a road traversing the Pamir Mountains through Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia. It is the only continuous route through the difficult terrain of the mountains and serves as the main supply route to Tajikistan's Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region. The route has been in use for millennia, as there are a limited number of viable routes through the high Pamir Mountains. The road formed one link of the ancient Silk Road trade route. M41 is the Soviet road number, but no road number is generally signposted along the road today, only destinations.
The ultimate guide to taking a road trip on the “roof of the world” – the Pamir Highway.
Basketball-sized stones rained down on us from the roadside cliffs above. The earth shook violently, and the sound of exploding dynamite echoed down the valley.
We stopped in our tracks and stared fearfully across the narrow Pamir River. 30m from us was Afghanistan’s Badakhshan province, which was currently under the attack of Taliban rebels.
We looked at Mohammed and waited for his instructions. Our guide simply laughed. “The Afghans are building a road.”
The Pamir Highway is one of the world’s greatest road trips. Unofficially starting in Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan and unofficially ending in Osh in Kyrgyzstan, this captivating route was once part of the historic Silk Road.
Weaving between soaring mountains and along sprawling desert, the trek that today makes up the majority of people’s exploration connects Osh to Khorog, a small town in the heart of the Pamir Mountains.
Highway M41 rises over the second highest border crossing in the world and hits the border of Tajikstan and Afghanistan before cutting in on a direct route to Khorog.
At this point most people continue along the border and into the infamous Wakhan Valley, flanked by the Pamir Mountains on one side, and the Hindu Kush on the other.
No images or stories can prepare you for just how beautiful the Wakhan Corridor is. For as many days as you care to take you traverse the fine line between two misunderstood nations. T
ajikistan is more remembered for its civil war and as a major heroin trade route than anything else. The problems of Afghanistan are well-documented and often overstated.
Still in this narrow passage all one can think about is how surreal its scenery is.

Pamir - 'Roof of the World'
The Pamirs are a mountain range in Central Asia stretching from Afghanistan into Tajikistan. They are among the world's highest mountains, its translation in ancient Persian meaning 'Roof of the World'.
This short clip gives an impression of this beautiful region. It was shot during a one week trip driving from Khorog through the Wakhan Valley, onto Murgab in Eastern Tajikistan.
The background music is made by Kevin MacLeod, and is called 'The Long Road Ahead'

High Pamir and Afghan Wakhan Adventure
Our trip begins in Osh, before we quickly ascend straight up onto the Pamir Plateau. Our journey through the Pamirs will involve meeting nomads, trekking forgotten paths and visiting ancient fortresses before we head down to the Wakhan Corridor, where we will cross the border for a three day cultural excursion into the north eastern tip of Afghanistan. It is safe, it is utterly fascinating, and it is a story you will not tire of telling for many years. Leaving Afghanistan behind us - we turn northwards, beginning the final leg as we journey towards the beautiful and relaxed Dushanbe.
