Photographer's Note

The Yaghnobi people live in the upper reaches of the Yaghnob River. In the small settlements of this highly picturesque valley we saw no cars or even motorbikes, because there are no motor roads there. The Yaghnobi people have their own agriculture, watermills, electric power stations and even their own language. Administratively the territory belong to Ayni District of Sughd province in Tajikistan.

At the gorge in the picture, named Tang-i Dahona, petroglyphs were discovered in 2007.
