The Village of Baba Darwesh. Badakhshan Province.
The tiny village of Baba Darwesh, with the snow capped Sulaiman Mountains as a backdrop, sits opposite a tea house under a gigantic chinar tree on the main road that is part of the village of Chinar-i-Gunjuskhan (Sparrow's Chinar). It marks the border of Takhar and Badakhshan, eleven kilometers west of the bazaar town of Kishm. Baba Darwesh village tops a valley that was once a glacial lake beneath hills pocked by rock shelters of the right.
