Getting There & Away
Shared taxis from Ishkashim head north to Khorog (60TJS, three hours) and east to Langar (60TJS, three hours). They leave mostly in the mornings. Taxis also deliver travellers to the border with Afghanistan (3km, 5TJS).
A permit is needed to cross into the Afghan Wakhan, known as the 'Little Pamir'. This can be organised through a tour operator such as Tajikistan Travel (www.traveltajikistan.net) or through a similar agency in Afghanistan. PECTA in Khorog also gives reliable advice on border crossing and tours.
