It is a few hours easy to take trek at Kargush pass. Kargush pass is just an hour drive from Alichur village before the check point at the entrance to Pamir Wakhan. Reaching the view point at so called Panorama Ridge gives you a chance to view a snowy Afghan Wakhan and to spot stunning mountain scenery of Great Pamir on Afghan border. While walking up, two small lakes behind you at roadside open up to cheer you. Break for lunch at the top of Panorama Ridge and walk back to your car on south side of the ridge.
