Re: Pre-arrange trekking tour for Fan / Son Kol / Karakol?

Besides of the price issue, I also would like to be a bit flexible concerning the dates of the treks, because I do not wish to make a very fixed schedule for a 5 week holiday. So again, it would be nice to be able to arrange treks at the spot (or a few days ahead). Any experiences with that? Would b...

Re: Fann Mountains trekking - tips?

Hi Stephen, thanks for answering all my messages :-) Just to clearify: 1) If we want to get from Rashnar (7 lakes) or Artuch to Iskanderkul, we need a multiple day trek, correct? How many days you think it takes? Is it also possible to do one-day hikes from each of these places and get from one plac...

Re: backpack? and what to bring for trekking?

Hi Stephen, thanks again for answering. I was thinking of taking one suitcase and one backpack, and taking the latter one with us while doing trekking. This should especially work OK when doing day hikes. Two problems though if we would do 2/3-day trekking instead of day hikes: (1) if we decide to t...

booking accomodations in advance?

Hi all, In less then a month, me and my gf are going to on a 5 week trip trough Uzbek-Taj-Kyrg-Kazakh and we already booked our first hotel in Tashkent. As I like to keep a bit of flexibility in how long to spent in each town/city, I would prefer to book accomodation just a few days in advance or fi...

backpack? and what to bring for trekking?

Hi all, I am aware that this may sound like a silly retorical question, but when travelling through Uzbek-Tajik-Kyrg-Kazakh, would you say taking a packpack instead of a suitcase is a must (or way more convenient) to travel around?
