Earth : Asia : Central Asia : Tajikistan : Pamirs : Karakul
There is a rest house for truckers that will serve a hardy dinner, its cheap but don't go expecting it to be pristine clean.
The people who live in Karakul are primarily ethnic Kyrgyz.
There is a tiny shop which sells extremely basic products. They do not sell bottled water so if you don't like tea, make sure you bring something to purify your water.
