Starwatching in the Wakhan

Stargazing in the Wakhan

One thing we were surprised by during our time in the Wakhan: how beautiful the stars were. Even in large villages like Ishkashim and Langar, there was generally so little light pollution that we had an excellent view of the night sky when there weren’t clouds.

From the small settlements, though, it was something truly incredible. It got cold at night, even in the middle of summer, so if you’re looking to do any real astral photography make sure to pack a set of warm clothes. As long as you have that, though, you should be all set to get some really beautiful images of the mountains and sky during your Wakhan journey.

Next time we make it down there, this is definitely one of our priorities!
