Most tourist accommodation in rural Badakhshan is in simple, comfortable homestays, usually typical Pamiri houses with outdoor toilet holes. There are also yurtstays in the eastern Pamir. Formal homestays typically cost around US$15 per person including two meals. If you receive an informal invitation we suggest you still offer around US$10, possibly leaving the money discreetly in an envelope to avoid embarrassment or refusal. PECTA in Khorog and TIC in Murgab have extensive homestay lists.
