Deadliest Journeys – Afghanistan: The Wakhan Passage

Nov 30, 2023 | Culture, News, People, Political, Travel, Videos

The Wakhan Corridor is a breathtaking and remote region of Afghanistan with some of the most rugged terrain in the world. Located at the extreme north-western tip of the country, it is bordered by the majestic Hindou Kouch mountain range and peaks as high as 5,000 metres above sea level. For those who dare to venture here, they’ll be rewarded with stunning views of snow-covered valleys, glaciers, alpine meadows, flowery pastures, and crystal clear rivers.

The only way to access this region is via a single road that cuts through the mountainside; however, it is often buried by several metres of snow due to its altitude. Despite its remoteness and harsh environment, this part of Afghanistan has been home to many nomadic tribes for centuries who have adapted and learned to thrive in such conditions – surviving on livestock herding and farming whatever land they can access or irrigate.

In recent years, a documentary has been produced about this unique culture – one that gives viewers an understanding into how these resilient people live their lives amongst such stunning yet challenging scenery. The film provides an intimate look into one family’s daily life and highlights the sheer determination required to survive in such an unforgiving landscape. It also showcases beautiful landscapes that will captivate anyone’s imagination and inspire them to explore further.

If you are looking for an inspiring documentary that takes you on a journey through one of Afghanistan’s most remote regions full of stunning landscapes and resilient people – then you have found it! Watch ‘Life along the Wakhan Corridor’ today!
