Re: Uzbekistan e-visa Q&A

Also just received my visa. Also big problems with Captcha, just keep clicking on new word till one was really readable. Normally you get a stamp at the border. If you report with your evisa to airport and go to visa office they could print a sticker page filling one page.

Re: Almaty - charyn canyon - karakol

From the canyon to kegen there are busses.
To the wet border you need to hitchhike or arrange a taxi, probably already in Almaty to take you to Karakol.
I meet several people who did it by hitchhiking / paying little money to the driver.
Walking is not a option over the border.
