Photographer's Note

Silkroad travels: Pamir

Alichur kishlak (=village) borders to the Alichur river. The river water will eventually flow into Yashil kul (=lake) then into the Amu darya river and end up (in earlier times) in the Aral sea. I don't know whether there are any fish in this river at 3850 m altitude. You can try "Map: View" and study the incredible meandering of the river.

The picture reflects the peaceful atmosphere of the evening. People all go home before dark and rise at first dawn. The black dots at the horizon are free roaming Yak.
