Before you set out on your trip, you are well advised to visit the PECTA Tourist Information Centre office in Khorog.  The Association has developed a wide variety of itineraries for short and long excursions, with varying grades of difficulty.  Even more important, it is advisable to check here for visa and permit requirements, weather conditions, state of the roads, passes and tracks.  Khorog is also the best place in GBAO to stock up on travel essentials.  PECTA also rents out equipment: tents, sleeping bags, mountain gear, back-packs, binoculars, etc.  Many of the programmes suggested, require a driver or professional guide and these can be booked through them as well.
