Today our journey is 400 km. We`ll drive through Kuliab city, Kuliab is largest oblast in Tajikistan, where the best cotton is grown. We stop at the top of Shar-shar pass for a view of the Nurek dam, and then in Vose where we visit the Khulbuk - Kala  (9th-11th century).

The road joins the river Panj, which in turn forms the border with Afghanistan. The contrast across the river valley is telling. Tajikistan is undoubtedly a poor country, but in general the roads are sealed and buildings are connected with electricity. The situation barely 100m away is even starker, and it is as if the river represents not just a physical divide, but also a step back in time. We ll turn from main route to Bartan valley after Rushan 30 km drive into valley then cross the foot bridge hike to the Geisev canyon there you' sleep in tent dinner at the local kitchen.
