4Note that it will be open - unless something unforeseen happens, which can happen fast...
A friend of my where stuck in the Afghan side in August after the Afghan consul in Khorog had been attacked and they closed the border.. To get out he had to pay a 60$ "fine" (read: bribe)...
But don't consider this as a suggestion not to go.. Just bring a load of "emergency dollars" :)

Thanks for your replies.
I wanted to make sure it was open as I knew there were problems last summer, and this website (which is presumably out of date) says the border is closed:-
Thanks for confirming that's not the case..

I also see the Hairatan/ Termiz border being another choice, or does anyone know if its still open.
I plan on heading this way, so if you are in the area around the same time then maybe we might meet -up someplace,
