We flagged off from the Pamir Hotel at 11am and headed straight to Khorugh. We were supposed to leave much earlie but Karim’s car could not start and Faizal’s motorbike did not work either. Faizal had to diagnose his bike with the computer and Karim had to fix his car battery. Alhamdulillah everything is done and settled.
At 12pm, we headed straight to Khorough and the scenery was amazing with the mountains covered with snow. Despite that, the oads were in bad condition. After riding for two hours to a total of 120km, we stopped for a brief rest and some lunch by the river.
At 4pm, we continued our journey to Khorough accompanied by the beautiful river flow. We also got to witness the hardship of the residents living in the villages of Tajikistan. We reached Khorough at 8pm and tried to find a hotel to stay for the night but most of the hotels were full. However, the kind Tuan Syed showed us a nice motel to stay for the night. We had our dinner in an Indian restaurant nearby.
