Re: Pamir highway: Osh - Dushanbe 24th June (8 days)

I think I have other plans but you can let me know the cost. Two of us going Osh to Dushanbe, also interested in Peak Lenin but we might be interested in stopping off for some longer treks that would make us not great travel partners. Still would like to consider, though.

Re: Belarus Visa Free June 10 to July 10 in 2019

I hope we can get some clarity re: when and how Russia will allow visitors, as that prevents me from actually buying plane tickets and whatnot. I got a $10 ticket to a 3x3 basketball game, hope to fly in to Minsk and then have a trip through Russia after that. So far I have only seen confirmation fr...

Re: Charyn Canyon loop itinerary

I got around to attempting this trip. Marshrutka at Sayakhat bus terminal in Almaty to Kegen is 3000 tenge per person. Ask to be dropped off at Charyn canyon turn (use a map or your best Russian, they understood well enough). This leaves you 10km to the canyon. On a Sunday we got a ride within 5 min...

Re: Any cheap flight options to/from Ulaanbaatar

Obviously that requires a Russian visa and more time but I found it to be an interesting itinerary that I'll try in the future. You can then cross the border...

Re: Uzbekistan new registration system from July 2018

gaetandzoni to be clear did they ask for your registration at the border? Are you sure you didn't offer it to them? Because I was not asked for registration, the reports on what the law says (re: it's the hotel's responsibility now) would indicate they don't check, and other traveler's have said the...
