Dear all,

I am on a roadtrip from Europe to China and am currently in Samarqand, UZ. In few days (end of September) I plan to start driving on Pamir hwy in the direction Dushanbe -> Khorog -> Osh. I am driving my own car, it's an old Mercedes C240, and until now :) had no problems with altitude sickness. I consider myself a decent driver.

Hi,
{cross posting in Turkmenistan thread}.

Yes - a common(ish) question but I surprisingly can't seem to find any info posted before on this.

Has anyone attained a Turkmen visa in Tajikistan? I just want to go to Turkmenistan for a few days and then back to Tajikistan.

Any tips on how to swindle the transit technique or just a normal visa would be very welcome.

Thanks for traveling,
Fox-

Hey everyone

Two of us would like to travel from Dushanbe to Bishkek during June 18 - 24 for 7 days next year would appreciate some advice on planning the trip:

  • If you guys could suggest which route to take / itinerary that would be fabulous; we just need to be at Bishkek by June 25 before start of another group tour.
  • We are undecided whether to go via Wakhan Corridor - is the region considered safe to travel? Would we have enough time to get there during the tour?
  • It will be Ramadan in…

Hi-

A friend and I are arriving in Dashanbe in late September with and plan to do the Pamir Highway road trip to Osh. We've emailed a # of agencies for quotes for a 6-7 day tour from Khorog to Osh but they all seem significantly higher than the prices I'm seeing on this forum - the range I've been offered is from about $550 / person to $1500 / person.

1) What is a typical price for a 6-7 day trip from Khorog to Osh for 2 people - safe, sturdy vehicle and a driver/guide who speaks at least some…

Hi,

I am planning to visit Tajikistan (may be India> Kyrgyzstan> Tajikistan) next year. Being an Indian, I need to arrange Letter of Interest(LoI) and a covering letter to get Tourist visa.

Has anyone good sources of…
