map sketch central Pamirs
I have redrawn this sketch based on the map sketch "Pamirs 1:150 000"
which was available at Atchik Tash base camp. The "contours" only qualitatively
represent the steepness of the glacier slopes.
Peak Communism (until 1962 Peak Stalin) was renamed to "Ismoil Somoni" in July 1998,
honoring the founder of the first Samanide state 1100 years ago. Today's Tadzhik Republic
sees its roots in this state.
