Explore the Wakhan Corridor
The Wakhan Corridor is a small strip of land roughly 140 miles long and at some ponts, only 10 miles wide. Flanked by the mountains of Pakistan and Tadjikistan on either side, it acts as a land route between Afghanistan and China. The area is so remote that the indigenous Kyrgyz people, who herd yaks and goats, have been left to their own devices for decades, and, in their own words, left behind by the world. This part of the world has seen less visitors than Mount Everest, those lucky enough to visit the area include Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great and Marco Polo.
