I’ve sleept well and the weather is clear blue sky and warm.
Low traffic, only few trucks and some Jeeps, mostley of them transport people between Khorog and Murghab and futher
I had some stop for water refiling and lunch break.
For me, a Swedish man it’s sometimes Hard to belive that People can live amongs mountainbike like this.
Most of the landscape is drygt land, not much rain is coming down. The water in the creeks and rivers coming from meltiing snow in the mountains.
You cant buy very much Up here in Pamir, noodles, pepsi, snickers, cookies and so on, thats all
After the road this event is not uncommon, and I guarantees you never see a man in this position.
Anyone wondering why…?
I actually do not know what these animals statues want to symbolize, but they are magnificent
Five, six my goal for this day was ended.
A room with hot bath ( + 40 ) cost 40 Somoni, and it was worth every penny .It’s like massage for tired legs.
On my cycling up here meet a France cyclist several times and now we also shared a room, and bath.
Next day My first challenge, climbing up to Koltezek pass, altitude 4271 m.a.s.l.
The first part not easy but I’ve done tougher, but the last 4-5 km before the peak was something else. Dirty, dusty road with lots of lose stones.
After the peak of Koltezek pass the road become worse, gravel road for more then 30 km.
It’s only accepting facts, the roads are not of the same standard as home in Sweden.
But then …
Teen minutes later I booked a night i a Yurt at Matluba guesthouse in Alichur.
I really enjoyed sleeping under thick colorful quilts
See yeah from Pamir hotel in Murghab
