The modest city of Khorog is located in the heart of a deep canyon, near the Tajik-Afghan border. Hidden amidst the rising Pamir Mountains, this region is also referred to as the "roof of the world" due to its high altitude, and Khorog itself is situated 6,561 feet above sea level. Sheltered by the surrounding mountains, the weather in the city remains largely pleasant year-round, with temperatures reaching a scorching 40 degrees celsius in summer.
The city is a picture-perfect haven with scenes unparalleled to anywhere else in the world. Untouched by modern tourism and commercialism, authentic traditions and Soviet-era factories thrive and the city is renowned for its abundant natural beauty. Hundreds of Poplar trees amongst a diversity of flora and fauna create a vivid-green canopy that lines the valley. It is the perfect destination for visitors to get in touch with raw and unspoilt natural beauty where there are many hidden charms to discover
