Ascending Djiptyk pass (3810m).

Approaching the Vorukh enclave (Tajikistan).



Our last camp under apricot trees.


Our rendez-vous with the car that will bring us back to Osh (the fact that we found the car at exactly the time and place we had planned, while none of us, nor the driver, had ever been there before, was a bit magical for me).


A few hours later, we were enjoying shashliks and vodka at a restaurant in Osh.
