Getting There & Away
Beyond Veshab, the 200km road that leads along the valley from Ayni to Langar becomes precipitous and, at the time of writing, badly potholed. Only those with a determination to get off the beaten track are likely to be tempted to spend two days in struggling along to the end of the valley and back, particularly as there is no regular public transport.
A variety of shared 4WDs depart from Ayni's hospital 4WD stand, mostly in the afternoon, returning the next morning. Seats in shared vehicles (around 60TJS per seat) can take hours (or even days if heading beyond Langar) for the vehicle to fill up. It's less frustrating to charter the whole vehicle but this costs around 900TJS to Langar (five to six hours) along a miserably rough road.
