Re: Karakoram Highway (Pakistan) self-drive rental car

Hi! I haven't heard anything good or bad about that company, Royal Car Rentals, but thinking about doing the same thing; renting a car in Islamabad and drive the KKH to the China border, if permitted to rent a one-way, because my plans are taking me to Kashgar, then to Saritash, Kyrgyzstan. Please l...

Re: Petrol and diesel in Pamir

Cars are provided with filters for fuel and oil, water would be the only thing to worry and you can see water the easiest. I traveled the Pamir and had no problem either finding where to fill, or running out of fuel. Obviously there are instances where you cannot see the fuel being poured into your ...

Train from Volgograd to Khiva/Nukus/Urgench, Uzbekistan, running October 2017?

Another train ride I haven't been able to confirm; Volgograd to Urgench/Khiva/Nukus, in Uzbekistan. Does anybody knows anything related to the trains running this route, if they are available in October?
Appreciate the comments.

Re: Rent full travelling equipment bikes to do the Pamir Highway

Good luck with your endevours, Roood, there's definitely need for that kind of business. I am waiting for the "one-way-rental" for the Pamir Highway at either end for motor vehicles. Last time I rented in Bishkek, and had to return there to return the car, and it was painful.

Train from Baku to Volgograd for October 2017?

Does anybody know if there's a train running in October from Baku to Volgograd? My plans have changed; to obtain that Turkmen transit visa I have to sell my soul to the devil, and after much go around game with all the consulates and embassies, I just give up and I am going around. From Tehran I am ...

Turkmenistan transit visa in Tbilisi

The Turkmenistan Embassy/Consulate opened its doors in Tbilisi in 2014, and as my October trip approaches, the only visa I need is that of Turkmenistan, which is difficult to get. Has anybody applied for the Transit Visa in Tbilisi to pick it up later on-the-go in, let's say Tehran, or Mashhad? Than...

Re: benzin stations between Korogh and Murgab

Traveling the Pamir Highway, that was my concern also; Benzin Stations. You will find benzin almost everywhere, the dispatch it out of a room, somewhere in a village, or at a regular gast station like in the case of Sari Tash. The price varies a little, and quality too, but there is no problem findi...

Dushanbe to Khorog cycling, how long would it take R/T?...

Hi Everyone! Did the Pamir Highway last October, but due to mechanical problems with my car rental, I did not make it to Dushanbe; I drove from Bishkek, and when I reached Khorog, I turned back and made it to Bishkek again after a tedious road trip (but amazing!). Now I am thinking about flying to D...
