Qal'ai Khumb

Surrounded by the vast Pamir Mountain range, Qal'ai Khumb (or Kalai Khumb) is a remote stop-off, popular with travelers making the spectacular overland trip between Kulob and Khorugh (100 miles from Kulob and 150 miles from Khorugh). The isolated and sparsely populated town does offer a few homestays and guesthouses, although amenities in this undeveloped settlement remain very basic.

Translating to "fortress on the banks of the river of Khumb" in Arabic, Qal'ai Khumb sits at the meeting point between the Pamir Pass and the Panj River right in the very south of Tajikistan; you can even see across the river, which acts as a border, into Afghanistan from the town, and many points along the way in and out.
