A trek in the Afghan Wakhan Corridor

In the very northeast of Afghanistan is a strip of land tucked away between two massive mountain ranges: The Wakhan Corridor. Far away from violence, this is probably the only safe place for travelers to visit within Afghanistan. Yet only a 100 people, primarily trekkers and climbers, make it out here every year. In September 2010 I did a trekking deep into the Wakhan towards the Lake of Chaqmaqtin. The trek report follows, here's a selection of photographs of this spectacular end of the world.
