|Introduction||Ever since I did a bicycle trip (in 2009) in the south of Tajikistan I have been fascinated about the mountains and people in the Pamir region. I discovered that up-to-date (printed) information about trekking in this area is hard to find. The Pamirs have a lot of potential for trekkers. In the summer of 2010 I roamed around in the Fann Mountains and the Afghan Pamir (Wakhan), my first research trip that resulted in a guidebook about trekking in this stunning region. In 2012, I finished my field research and the book is now available in PDF. If you have questions or plan a trek in the Pamirs (including Fann Mountains) feel free to contact me. This website is intended to give information about the treks I have already walked myself. I am available for lectures about adventure travel in Tajikistan and the Afghan Wakhan in Dutch and English. I'm also available for (privately) guided treks in these regions. Please send an email for more information.|
