Re: Special permit for Surxondaryo region

How did you get to Kara Tepe? Did you drive there or hire a car and a driver? [/quote] I went with a driver that was organized by my guesthouse in Termez: 200.000 UZS (ecxl. entrance tickets) for 6 hours. The tour (for most drivers this is the standard tour) included Stupa Zurmala, Fayaz Tepa, Kara...

Re: Special permit for Surxondaryo region

Last year I went to Surxondaryo - and nobody ever asked me for any permits. You can visit most of the historical sites outside of town without any hussle, even for Kara Tepe (that is often described as restricted) I did not need any document besides the entrance tickets you can buy on site. Be awar...

Re: Special permit for Surxondaryo region

@bamboo: Did you go to Surxondaryo? I'm told current Australian government advice says "You need an official permit for any travel to: - Termez on the Afghan border - areas of Surkhandarya in the south-east" i.e. more than just the two historical sites. UK government advice is "The FCDO advises aga...

Direct flight from Kyrgyzstan to Tajikistan

Hi everyone,

I will be in Osh this July and my original plan was to cross the border to Tajikistan from Osh. In case, the border is still closed by that time, is there any direct flight from either Osh or Bishkek to Dushanbe? I can't find anything online. TIA.

Re: Trekking

Hi there. I am visiting Tajikistan in July and was hoping to get some information about trekking. I'm interested in the following areas: Lakes Loop near Mt. Chimtarga, Khorog, Jisev Valley (I realize the last two are very far from the capital and require a separate visa). Which of those would you s...

Re: Flight from Osh to Bishkek

Yes, there are quite a few daily flights between these cities, and prices are low. Apart from Tez Jet, there's also Avia Traffic (https://www.aero.kg), which currently seems to have two flights on most days. These flights are not available through international brokers. I didn't have any problems b...

Re: Visa situation

Thanks a lot for the information. I am planning to come on the end of july. Are you going with a guide or solo? I haven’t really thought about it yet since I haven’t sorted out the visa yet. However, it will be good to get a guide in each different city (Kabul, Herat, Mazar and Kandahar). How about...

Flight from Osh to Bishkek

Hi,

Does anyone know if there’s a flight from Osh to Bishkek? Air Kyrgyzstan seems to be out of business, I can’t find Air Manas’s website. Tev Jet’s wesbite doesn’t have an english option. Kiwi and other third party only shows flights with connections in Almaty.
