Security situation worsens in Badakhshan/Wakhan

Mountain Unity has posted an article on an extremist attack in the Badakhshan Province, only a few hours from Ishkashim which forms the gateway to the Wakhan Corridor. Mountain Unity, a charity that promotes tourism in the Wakhan, can no longer do so. This is what they say on their Facebook page:

"Wardoj is only a few hours from Ishkashim. Mountain Unity no longer promotes the Wakhan as a safe destination because we have no presence or insight into the situation on the ground."


Anyone planning a trip to the region, keep an eye on the MU Facebook page for the latest.
