Getting There & Away
Basid is located 85km off the Pamir Hwy. There are two UAZ minibus services to Basid that operate most days; one leaves Rushan at around 3pm (20TJS, 2½ hours) and the other leaves Khorog at 5pm (30TJS, 3½ hours). Both services return in the morning leaving Basid at around 7am, passing the Khigez bridge on request at around 8am.
It's around 40km from Khigez to Basid (10TJS, one hour) and the bus reaches the Khigez bridge heading in that direction at about 4.30pm each day.
Other than that, private transport is pretty much the only way of exploring the valley.
