This is a great image of the Wakhan and Hindu Kush mountains. This area present great opportunities for people wishing to trek and climb in one of the last great mountain wildernesses. I now live out there and we are starting to see a return of trekkers and mountaineers which is great news for the local people.

Thank you Christopher for this fantastic image. Best wishes from everyone in the Wakhan.
