Ishkashim is located 104km south of Khorog on the Afghan border.


Get in[edit]

Shared jeeps depart from across the bridge from the bazaar in Khorog. No set schedule, they go on demand. 40TJS. For getting back to Khorog,around 8-9 am is your best bet. For excursions up the Wakhan Valley, its 111k  to Langar, around 65km to Yamchan Fortress and Bibi Fatima hot springs. Transport goes on demand. And can be from early morning to late afternoon especially if the jeep has come thru from Khorog. From Langar you can even get to Murgab but you'll be hard pressed to find any one going that way. But as long as you have the cash, you can get anywhere.
