As far back as the imperial ‘Great Game’ between Tsarist Russia and Victorian England, the high Pamirs have long been an outpost of strategic importance. While heavily subsidized and protected during the Soviet period, the region struggled through famine and isolation during the Tajik civil war, following the Soviet collapse in 1991. Today, with this incredible landscape open to tourists, development workers and drug smugglers, Pamiris struggle to navigate a future, while retaining their cultural past.
