Re: Stomach health when in Kyrgystan

I think the danger is in low-end "restaurants" and homestays.

In Ladakh we also never got sick, but we cooked a lot ourselves, and went to decent places to eat in Leh.
And I don't really recall that there were homestays in Ladakh.

Re: FAMILY MOTORHOME TRAVEL

I was happy with the refillable bottle, so that it was always the same size, otherwise it wouldn't fit in our small van. But maybe you can figure it out what the sizes are, or if you have lots of space for bottles, then it is okay. I think I used this adapter mostly in Asia: https://www.gaswinkel.co...

Re: 2nd hand bicycle markets in Pakistan KKH

With Google you can already find a few stores in Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Probably there is no market division for bicycles, but I could be wrong. I wouldn't be surprised if you can buy something new for your budget, and I would go with suspension. Because it will be easier on you and the bicycle, ...

Re: 2nd hand bicycle markets in Pakistan KKH

Such kind of bike can probably only be found in the big cities. Islamabad has markets but also more Western shopping malls. Rawalpindi has much more old style markets. Probably a better chance to find second hand. But perhaps for 100 to 200 euro you can buy a new simple bike in Islamabad. The roads ...

Re: 2nd hand bicycle markets in Pakistan HHK

You mean the KKH?

I wouldn't expect too much of it. There were hardly any bicycles there from what I remember.
I would try to arrange it in advance through some guesthouse in Gilgit.

Or buy something in the capital.

Re: Report: Russian Tourist Visa in Ulaanbaatar

Can someone confirm if it really isn't possible anymore for people from nations that aren't of the long-term registration list (in my case the Netherlands) to get a visa in Ulan Bator? If you are still at home, you can look into getting a Business visa, which lasts longer and has more entries, depe...

Re: Which country for long term parking

Many people are doing that in Kyrgystan, but yes, you would need a temporary import paper that is valid for 1 year or at least the amount of time you need. I'm not sure what the default is.

Re: Silk route and kitesurfing

We have been to the south coast of Iran, the Persian Gulf. I guess it sucks for surfing, because the see is very quite and little wind. We are not surfers, but our German friends are, who were with us. One day there was quite some wind, and he took the oppertunity. So yes, he wind surfed on the Pers...
