Daniel Metcalfe’s 2004 journey in search of “the lost peoples of Central Asia”.
Leaving Iran he travelled through Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Afghanistan, winding up with the Kalash in the NWFP valleys of Pakistan.
A good read if you’re thinking of doing either of these trips or similar:
My appetite for these Wild Frontiers expeditions has been (re)whetted:
- Kyrgyzstan & Tajikistan: High Pamir Explorer
- Tajikistan & Afghanistan: Wakhan Corridor Trek
- Tajikistan & Afghanistan: Wakhan Pamir Adventure
