Re: VPNs in Xinjiang

Why not already get your Tajikistan e-visa? To be on the safe side. Once Chinese customs touch your phone I would consider it as "lost". Yes you can still use it, but there is probably some sort of spyware installed, and your VPNs might be gone. So I would, maybe even before but at least a...

Re: Traveling with dogs in Iran, Pakistan

Pakistan will probably have less rules. I don't know how it is, but I know people have been travelling through Pakistan with dogs. They probably don't like them so much, but it also means they are scared of them and don't want to inspect your vehicle. On average, in muslim areas (also in India) they...

Re: Given reason for Iranian visa rejection

Put Google Translate app on your phone, download the Persian / Farsi language, select the language, and put it on camera mode. Hopefully that works.

Re: Kazakhstan for vegetarians/vegans

I remember in Oral there was also some variety in restaurants. So for example a small sushi place or pizzeria. So I think that would work for vegetarians.
I can't remember if the supermarkets had the Russian style buffet where you can buy in weight, and have some veg options.

Re: Diesel quality in Kazakhstan?

I can't answer that. We have a very simple diesel engine, and we just filled up everywhere in Kyrgyzstan. I was happy not to worry about it anymore unlike Uzbekistan or parts of Tajikistan. On average, I would say Kyrgyzstan is better organised than the surrounding countries. With some exceptions, y...

Re: Soviet installations, relics, monuments etc

There is an abandoned soviet military base a little bit east of lake Zorkul. There is a nice broken half track with a red star. Other than that, it is not so interesting, with some crumbling buildings. It is a detour from the Pamir highway, and I think it is one that you will find it hard to get tra...

Re: Diesel quality in Kazakhstan?

In Kazakhstan you can sometimes see that they offer Euro 5 diesel next to normal diesel. I don't know what you get to a fuel station that just sells diesel. But when you see the Euro 5 diesel I would immediately fill up there. Maybe Kyrgystan is okay too. I would go for the best looking (brand) fuel...

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...
