Photo Journey: The Pamir Highway

Photo Journey: The Pamir Highway

In September 2016, we hopped in a cramped 4WD to begin our journey along the Pamir Highway. We begun in Osh, Kyrgyzstan and finished our journey two weeks later in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. This incredible highway was built during Soviet times to transport military gear, and reaches heights of more than 4,000 metres above sea level.
