Re: Arslanbob vs. Kara Alma vs. Kyzyl Ünkür

I’ll answer my own question. We took a shared taxi from Kazarman to Jalalabad and convinced the driver to drop us in Kara Alma. It’s a small detour for him and he may or may not agree/charge you extra for this (after some negotiating he did not for us). Make sure you know where to be dropped at Kar...

Re: Anyone travelled around Ugam region?

Langar is the gateway town - really friendly people there in our experience. See if the NGO Ugam still exists - Yubilejnaya street 22, Langar - Alikhan Abdeshev can set you up if he is still there. There are homestays near to the park in the villages of Kaskasu and Dikhankol. I highly recommend visi...

Re: Best treks in Pamir Highway

Good question, it's already late in the season. Basically, anything that is not too high.

How long would you like to trek for?

Day hikes from Jizev, Langar, Alichur etc. are good bets. Otherwise, have a look at Khatlon province for warmer temperatures. https://caravanistan.com/tajikistan/south/

Re: Kazakhstan new visa free rule 2015

That's terrible. I adjusted it on our page. Sorry I could not be of more help beforehand. It's so difficult some times to make sense of.

Re: which border should I choose to get to UZ

Farap-Alat for you. Get a taxi to door to hell and back from Ashgabat, then go to Merv. Mary to Bukhara can be done in one day.

Re: Itinerary Uzbekistan 14 days - feedback appreciated

Hi! first off, you're better off going Samarkand - Sentyab - Nurata - Navoi - bukhara. Otherwise you are backtracking. Not sure where you read that that is the quickest way, hopefully not on this website. I'll need to make that more clear. Either go via taxi first to Jizzakh and get picked up there,...
