The Wakhan Corridor (on the other hand Vakhan Corridor, or Wakhan) is the tight segment of an area in northeastern Afghanistan that stretches out to China and isolates Tajikistan from Pakistan. The hall, wedged between the Pamirs toward the north and the Karakoram range toward the south, is around 350 km (220 mi) long and 13–65 kilometers (8–40 mi) wide.
Inside the Wakhan Corridor is a high mountain valley from which the Panj and Pamir Rivers rise and structure the Amu Darya. An exchange course through the valley has been utilized by voyagers going to and from East, South and Central Asia since relic. Wakhan Corridor can likewise allude to the valley and the exchange course. The conclusion of the Afghan-Chinese fringe crossing at the Wakhjir Pass at the east finish of the Wakhan Corridor, be that as it may, has transformed the valley into a circular drive occupied by wanderers.
The hallway was a political formation of The Great Game. On the passageway’s north side, understandings among Britain and Russia in 1873 and among Britain and Afghanistan in 1893 successfully split the notable district of Wakhan by making the Panj and Pamir Rivers the fringe among Afghanistan and the Russian Empire. On its south side, the Durand Line understanding of 1893 denoted the limit between British India and Afghanistan. This left a limited piece of land as a cushion between the two domains, which ended up known as the Wakhan Corridor in the twentieth century.
Starting at 2010, the Wakhan Corridor had 12,000 inhabitants.The northern piece of the Wakhan is likewise alluded to as the Pamir.
