21 Outstanding Photos From Langar, Tajikistan

The Pamir Highway, spanning from Kyrgyzstan to Tajikistan in Central Asia, is, quite possibly, the most picturesque area of the world we’ve ever been. Towering snow-capped mountains, windy high altitude roads, friendly local people and lush valleys and rivers are the scenery one can expect along the way. Each village, each ancient site and each lake that we saw was stunning, but for some reason, the little village of Langar in the Wakhan Valley stood out for us. There was just something special about that place.

Enough talk, enjoy these 21 outstanding photos 🙂
