Ishkashim

Located near the Panj River on the Afghan border, the town of Ishkashim lies directly opposite a town of the same name in Afghanistan. A bridge connecting these towns was constructed in 2006, where the border has been sliced through the Pamir mountains of Tajikistan and Afghanistan. It's a small town that lies at the mouth of the Wakhan Corridor, a narrow strip of sparse grassland that stretches between some of Asia's highest mountains.

The landscape here is bewitching; beautiful and remote with stunning views of the Pamir mountain range. The region itself is considered sacred and a number of historical and archeological sites are located in Ishkashim. Located on a branch of the historical Silk Road, known as the Buddhist Silk Road, the whole Ishkashim district beholds great cultural significance to the people of Tajikistan. Furthermore, a number of natural hot springs are located throughout Ishkashim, renowned for their healing and energizing properties.
