    No need to pre book, please buy tickets at the door. Bill Colegrave tells the story of his search through wartorn Afghanistan for the real and ultimately surprising source of the Oxus River, through the notorious and mostly unexplored Wakhan Corridor to the Pamir Mountains. The Oxus, that vast central Asian river that rises somewhere in the Afghan Pamirs, has fascinated explorers for centuries. Its name gives us the land of Oxiana. Yet few Europeans had set eyes on Author: Matthew Leeming.

      The marauder Obaidallah crossed the Sita River (aka Kabul River) and made a raid on Kabul in only to meet with defeat and humiliation. Vincent Smith, in Early History of India, states that the Turkishahiya dynasty continued to rule over Kabul and Gandhara up until the advent of the Saffarids in the ninth century. ON ANCIENT TRACKS PAST THE PAMIRS SIR AUREL STEIN THE KINDLY invitation which my valued friend, the Editor of The Himalayan Journal, recently addressed to me has come at a time when response is made difficult by manifold tasks claiming my attention in the short interval between travel in my old Central Asian field and a fresh journey on very different ground.

    Karakoram is a Turkic term meaning black Central Asian traders originally applied the name to the Karakoram Pass. Early European travellers, including William Moorcroft and George Hayward, started using the term for the range of mountains west of the pass, although they also used the term Muztagh (meaning, "Ice Mountain") for the range now known as nates: 35°52′57″N 76°30′48″E / °N . Fringed by the two great rivers of Central Asia, the Oxus and the Jaxartes, Tajikistan can boast not only of breathtaking mountain scenery, but also 3, years of history. The land where Alexander the Great fought desperately against the Scythian nomads, his most formidable adversaries, Tajikistan is an ancient cradle of Persian culture.
