Khorog  is the  capital of the autonomous region of Gorno-Badakhshan, Tajikistan. It is the main urban center in the region.  The town  is situated at an altitude of 2000 meters, and "scattered" on the slopes of the gorge of the river Gunt.  The flight from Dushanbe to Khorog  may seem  one of the most critical and exciting experiences. Most of the 45-minute flight, the plane glides over the mountain valleys, almost touching  slopes of the giant mountain peaks. The plane flies  so close to them  that blizzards rise on the wings

Pamir Highway is characterized by   the   specific features, perhaps it is the highest constant highway  in the world.  Route of   728 kilometers will last for   two days and it seems like a real adventure. The road is full of   numerous dangerous corners, passing sometimes so close to the edge of the deepest chasms;    one of the wheels of the car hangs over the abyss.  Fence of road   is  out of the question;  many areas were severed by landslides and avalanches.
