Re: Mongolia's roads

You have to be more clear on where you want to go. If you enter Mongolia in Ulaanbataar (plane or train) and you mention a few cities, I imagine Kharkhorin, the roads are fine. But other locations really depend. There are a few main roads which are pretty good tarmac, but a lot of the sites are way ...

Re: Pamir Highway by camper

Well I don't know that Norwegian ambulance, what kind of car it is. Our car was a Norwegian Red Cross car, used in some of the search and rescue missions (8 seater 4x4 van) and it made it :) But most of these Mercedes vans have a very short first gear, so that helps alot if you have little power. An...

Re: Pamir Highway by camper

Well, other people have successfully extended in Khorog. But not everybody. We don't speak any Russian. We also said that the road was very bad (obviously) and it is very time consuming. Anyway, his first reaction was a bit angry, but he went into his shed to do the administration, and then he came ...

Re: Pamir Highway by camper

I think a Mercedes 612D should be okay for the main Pamir highway. Those Mercedes busses usually have some ground clearance and a slow first gear, that's great. Don't make to much things that are sticking out on the bottom, that can be hit. You get 15 days, which you can extend at the customs office...

Re: Drones in Central Asia - rules Q&A

I agree, but you could also try to send it to some guest house in Dushanbe. Or buy it in Dushanbe. Okay, it is not like Almaty, but I'm sure you can find a shop to buy a drone there.

Re: Road conditions between Oral and Nukus?

Looking forward to hear about your next part. Because from Beyneu, where you have to cross the railroad to get onto the road to Uzbekistan was the worst.
As soon as you cross the railroad it was horrible tarmac.

Re: Road conditions between Oral and Nukus?

Yes, and it will get worse from there on. From Beyneu onwards it is really bad, and some parts in the first hundreds of kilometers in Uzbekistan as well. Look out for sudden bad patches in a good road. This was status last year, I know they were constructing some new roads so hopefully you will be a...

Re: Wagah Border (Lahore - Amritsar) PAK - IND

Well, it is not an ordinary border in the sense that they have the border closing ceremony, and there is quite some attention for it as it is the only border between these two countries that don't like each other. But yeah, in terms of crossing it, not a big deal. Nice to hear that nothing changed. ...

Re: Charyn Canyon by bicycle

All the info should still be relevant. On the other side of the river, there are other canyons as well. It is quite a ride into a dusty dry area (washboarding roads etc) but it will allow you to camp out in a canyon all by yourself. We found it awesome, but we were with a car, so I'm not sure how mu...
