Set in the rugged Pamir Mountains, The Not Knowing is a new short film that follows riders Christian Meier and Peter Gaskill of The Service Course on an eight-day ride through Tajikistan. They wind their way through the Wakhan Valley, over the Khargush Pass, along the Pamir Highway, into the Bartang Valley, and beyond.

We’ve published several pieces from Tajikistan on the site in recent years, but the impressive cinematography in The Not Knowing does an exceptional job of showcasing the country’s remote and incredible beauty. Watch the film below, along with a small gallery of still images from the trip.

“I think we get too comfortable in the way we live. We need to break that mould every now and then, and see that there are other ways of living. We need to see these parts of the world a little outside of our comfort zone.” —Peter Gaskill, The Service Course
