Yak Riding in Eastern Pamir. An excellent and adventures Yak trek will take us on the unspoiled lunar landscape of high mountains and wide plateau to Zor Kul lake. The Eastern Pamirs have been populated by nomadic ethnic Kyrgyz since the 17th century. The traditional architecture is beautifully represented by yurts, mobile habitations made of felt on an ingenious wooden frame, with the interior decoration bearing witness to the wealth and skills of the owners. Exploring Zor kul lake, you can see the majestic northern wall of Afghanistan Hindikush and fantastic Kok jigit Lake en-rout. The lake’s eastern half lied in Tajikistan. In 1842, Lieutenant Woods of the British India Navy Explored the Pyanj and Pamir rivers as far as the latter’s source in Zor kul. Zor kul itself is 20 km long – the road runs along its northern shore.
