#31 – Bulunkul Village, TAJIKISTAN

Bulunkul is one of the world's loneliest and most remote villages!

Bulunkul, Tajikistan is a very remote village located at the Bulunkul freshwater lake in the upper Gunt Valley of Tajikistan’s Pamir Mountains. Located not too far from the lonely Pamir Highway, the village consists of just a few basic homes, including a few yurts. Winters are long and bitterly cold at which time some Russian vodka comes in quite handy. Have a nice meal with the locals and find about life in this part of the world.
