Yamchun Fort – Pamir Mountains, Tajikistan

Yamchun Fort  - Pamir Mountains, Tajikistan
© October 10 2007, Uncornered Market

The ruins of the 12th-century Yamchun Fort against a beautiful backdrop of the Pamir Mountains. Another kilometer up the road, you’ll find the delightful Bibi Fatima hot springs. The first dose of hot water we’d had in days. Taken in Tajikistan’s Wakhan Valley.

Uncornered Market
uncorneredmarket No, we didn’t meet the Bibi Fatima gangster – our driver kept telling us how expensive that place was so we didn’t go in. The hot springs at Bibi Fatima were so wonderful – we hadn’t seen hot water in days! Posted: December 03 2007
Nebula2008 Believe me, you didn’t miss much there. Are you planning to go to Tajikistan again soon? Posted: December 03 2007
