A preliminary survey of heritage sites in the Wakhan Corridor and The Little Pamir undertaken between August and October 2007 by Andy Miller. This report provides a preliminary inventory of heritage sites in the Wakhan and the Pamirs in the north-eastern province of Badakhshan in Afghanistan. Building on available documentation and information on the area, the sites listed in the following pages were visited during August and October 2007. The focus is on tangible heritage sites, from man-made landscapes to historic residential, communal and funerary structures, deemed most significant in terms of their intrinsic value to the history of the region and its population. It is not intended to provide a comprehensive account of all such sites, and the geographic scope is limited to the area between Ishkashim and Sarhad-e-Broghill, and the Little Pamir up to Bozai Gumbaz. This excludes Lake Chaqmatin and Mulk ‘Ali in the east of the Little Pamir, and the south eastern area along the Wakhjir River and the Bai Qara.
