Feedback: Your website is absolutly perfect! As an addicted traveler myself I find this website very usefull. Being an Israeli travelling in this ares is a little complicated. I know i could get a visa to Afghanistan only in Khorog so if i want to visit the afghan wakhan it would be from ishkashim, Do you think it is possible to visit the little and big Pamirs, without going down to Kabul for getting the permits?(which is extremly dangerous and irresponsible for an israeli to my opinion) What do i need to do in Ishkashim' in order to get the permission from that army commander? Do I need it at all? Thanks and keep up your amazing work. Yuval

Feedback: Partially I did review your website. It is a good effort to compliment the efforts to attract tourists to this special and isolated part of the world. Aga Khan Foundation with the support of Ministry of Norway has helped some families in Wakhan to establish modest tourist guestshouses. Major location of Guesthouses include village of Quzdeh; Qila Punja; Gozkhun;Sarhard e Brugil and a camp side in Khundud. People have also been trained in guesthouse management and work as tourist guides. I hope this information may be useful to potential people who are interested to visit Wakhan.

Feedback: Thank you for such an exhaustive and useful guide to Wakhan. I'm a russian backpacker, and like so much to travel around Pamir, went Wakhan in 2005. And one of the main problem was lack of information: I wasn't sure it is safe, didn't know much about wakhan people lifestyle and mentality. With this guide travelling to Wakhan becomes much more easy and predictable.

Does anyone know anything about the navigability of the river? I was there (only Khorog and down river) about 10 years ago and do not recall seeing boats. As it is the border are there restrictions on its use?
