I have so many pictures from our trip! I want to share more about our home stay, but it needs to wait for its own post. But here are some pictures from the town of Khorog, the new park and Botanical gardens.
Khorog is a peaceful town of about 27000 inhabitants. Like everywhere in Central Asia, animals roam free also in the towns. This couple is going shopping.
We walked to the town centre.
This is a new town park. It is really nice. Real lawn!!! Big trees, and fun things for children to do.
The park is built by Aga Khan foundation.
Then we took a minibus to the Botanical Garden. The entrance fee for foreigners is 3 $. The minibus took us all the way to the garden (usually you have to walk the last 0,5 km, but maybe the driver felt sorry for the million kids we had with us. )
Apples look gorgeous! And so does the fruit.
This is the second highest botanical garden in the world. I do not know where the highest is.
Busy little bee.
A gardener came to greet us and showed us more fruit trees. He really encouraged us to freely take the fallen fruit, but we just took some to eat right there and then.
