Crossed into Uzbekistan from Buston last Friday at 5pm. I had no trouble at all and went smoothly but it was time consuming even there were barely any other crossers.

Re: Sary Tash-Murghab border crossing

We just arrived in Korogh from Murgab and we got a lovely story to tell. If you love to be scamed, the Tajikian border at Bor Dobo is the place to be! First about the Kirghiz border and the rumors about the environmental tax. When we arrived, my German friend (team Oskar) with his Nugged (Ford Trans...
