Aga Khan Portrait - Pamir Mountains, Tajikistan

The religion of the Wakhan Valley in Tajikistan is Ismailism, a breakaway sect of Shia Islam. Their revered leader is the Aga Khan; you'll see a photo of him in every Pamiri home. In addition to being a spiritual leader, the Aga Khan has invested and donated vast amounts of money in the region (both Tajikistan and Afghanistan). Read more about our adventures in the Pamirs.
