Eating

When it comes to eating, and in comparison with the eastern portion of the Pamir Hwy, the western end of the highway benefits from better supplies from Dushanbe and from a wealth of delicious fresh produce. This includes temperate-climate fruits (including apricots and peaches) and various mountainside herbs that appear in salads and soups. In common with the east, however, eating after Kulob is mostly a homestay affair.
