Re: Russian Caucasus

Don't worry, me too I didn't check the forum every day the last week. Sorry, I don't have any particular tip because I just crossed the region by car and I spent just one night in Grozny, anyway I can advise a little visit of that city and of the Derbent fortress. Probably Dagestan is more interesti...

Re: Car insurance in Uzbekistan

Hi, Some days ago I purchased insurance after the border between Osh and Andijon (Dostyk). I got that at the end of the taxi parking just after the border, on the right side, in a small kiosk that at first sight sells food. I hope that's a real insurance, by the way the company is "Kafolat"...

Re: Caspian sea alternative

Hi mazeno, what do you mean with the last message, that the road now is "worse than a nightmare" due to construction works? I have to drive there as I wrote in a few days. Is it possible at this point to drive with my 2wd car or at this point should I seriously think about a long detour vi...

Re: Russia, Saratov to Kazakhstan, Uralsk

Hi, ... I don't entirely agree with the message above because I found the road on the Russian side a real nightmare. .... The message above shows a "bomb track" between the two Russian checkpoints, but I actually didn't find that trait more bad than the previous ones, in my opinion it wou...

Re: Russia, Saratov to Kazakhstan, Uralsk

Hi, I crossed this border yesterday driving on that road and I don't entirely agree with the message above because I found the road on the Russian side a real nightmare. After the first approximately 100 kilometers reconstructed, the remaining more or less 200 kilometers are mostly in a disastrous s...

Re: Where to buy jerrycans in Aktau or on the way to Beyneu

Hello,

I'm now in northern Kazakhstan and I saw different types of jerrycan at the gas stations, but I still don't know if there are so many service stations in Beyneu or not.

Re: Russian Caucasus

Hello, Yes I had e-visa. I crossed the main border "Samur" between Derbent and Quba with my car. Officers were friendly on the Russian side, while on the Azerbaijani side it seemed to be in a city bazaar as custom was so disorganized. All in all the Azeris were friendly too, only that I sp...

Re: Driving Nukus - Kungrad - Beyneu - Aktau

Thank you very much Moondusted for the info, it's exactly what I was looking for. I still have a question: I will drive through that road in the opposite direction, from Uzbekistan to Kazakhstan. Do you think that even in this case there will be a lot of overloaded uzbek cars waiting for the control...

Re: Diesel quality in Kazakhstan?

I will enter in Uzbekistan from Osh (Dostyk border crossing) and I'll drive to Beyneu crossing Uzbekistan through Fergana valley, Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, Nukus, Kungrad and Jasliq. My car has a little diesel engine and the tank contains about 50 liters, so with a full I could hypothetic...
