I have around a week to spare in Tajikistan in late September on my Central Asia trip this fall. I don't think I have enough time to fully explore the Pamirs, so I'm thinking of spending my time in the Fann mountains, hopefully exploring some of those beautiful lakes up there.
I am travelling solo, and I'm wondering how to arrange this. Not sure if I dare just heading up into the mountains by myself, so I'd rather join a group or at least find a guide. I've found several tours online…
I'm planning to make Pamir highway trip hiring the 4WD with the driver in early September.
Dushanbe-Osh or opposite. Could be great if somebody join me.
I'm Tanya 31 years old and love backpacking)
Hello fellow travellers
We are planning a stop in Istaravshan in the next couple of days; does anyone know of any accommodation there. As I have limited eyesight, poor hearing and people rarely understand what I say, I would really like to find out what is available before I get there. I can't find anything on any of the accommodation booking sites.
Is it worth stopping there overnight? We are en route to Dushanbe and don't wish to arrive there late in the evening.
If someone has stopped there…
I’m travelling to Tajikistan in the end of September/beginning of October this year and I’d like to see the Pamirs. I’m flying out of Osh on October 8th; I have 10-11 days to get there from Dushanbe. Do you think that it’s possible to arrange transport locally and do some sightseeing during this time of the year? Or is it better to go on an arranged tour from Dushanbe to Osh? I’ve emailed quite a few agencies, but only very few actually respond. I’m travelling by myself, so I would…
So today I got my Uzbek visa.
I'm now filling out the form for the e-visa for Tajikistan. I notice 3 questions that ask "Full name of your contact in Tajikistan", "Phone number of your contact in Tajikistan", "Address of your contact in Tajikistan".
There are asterisk next to these 3 questions, so I have to put something in those 3 boxes. Sure enough, I don't know anyone in Tajikistan. I'm tempted just to make up something.
Any advice anyone please?
I would cicle the Pamir highway from Osh to Dushanbe, but i haven't all the time to do that so i'm thinking to do some stretches with public transport.
Does someone know if from Tavildara is possible to catch some transports for Dushanbe?
Thank you Ivan
Hello, me and a friend are coming for the 3rd time to Central Asia this year. This time we are coming for an internship in Khorog. And I think you know all about the complicated public transport on the Pamir Highway.
So we had an idea: Since we have been already two times in Tajikistan, we have some experiences and we know about the culture and the mentality of the people there. And we both speak Tajik! Me, I am native speaker in a way because my parents are from Iran (farsi and tajik language…
Hi Everyone,I am a Canadian living in the United States. I would like to know if anyone on this forum has successfully obtained the e-visa using the website https://www.evisa.tj/index.evisa.html#/ and actually used it to enter the country?
I ask because i'm still debating whether to risk sending my passport to Tajikistan embassy in DC especially since i'm running out of time.
