Getting there & away
Buses depart Kazarman for Naryn (180som) on Wednesday and Saturday at around 8am (eight hours). At other times shared taxis and 4WDs congregate next to the bus parking lot on Jeenaliev, 50m west of CBT, and leave if and when they fill up. A seat in a shared taxi to Naryn costs 400som (5½ hours), Bishkek 800som, and 400som per seat in 4WDs bound for Jalal-Abad (four to six hours). Occasional minibuses also depart from here to Bishkek (600som).
Because of the very real possibility that there will be no-one to share your shared taxi, budget for the worst-case scenario – having to fork out for all four seats.
