Re: Pakistan karakoram hiking as solo female traveler

I've already hiked in the afghan wakhan. But now I'll go organized to Pakistan Karakoram because of the crevasses in the numerous glaciers towards Gondogoro La an K2bc.

Re: Pakistan karakoram hiking as solo female traveler

Wow Thanks for all your reactions! I didn't get updates in my mailbox so I'm sorry I didn't react until now! For sure I'll check the links. I've no motor driving license so I don't feel safe riding a motor bike and I definitely want to go hiking. Preferably high altitude so I'm pleased with the agen...

Pakistan karakoram hiking as solo female traveler

Of course the hotpots are great like the icelake, k2 BC, the high passes, but I'm not very intereste...

Re: Saudi Arabia tourist visa

I checked the status in November at the Saudi Embassy in the Hague (Netherlands). The woman was very strict in her answer: there is no possibility for a tourist visum application. No possible way to visit Saudi Arabia if you are a non-muslim, female tourist. Even with my partner it was not possible....

Re: Embassy Report: Russian Visa in Dushanbe

A transit visum is only allowed when you travel via 1 city. So if you have a non-connection flight in Moscow or you need to change the airport in one city, a transit visum is no problem. But if you fly from Duchanbe to Yekaterinburg to Moscow to wherever, the rules won't you allow to travel with a ...

I was there off season so enough space and time to discuss possibilities, but please contact them(Google, Facebook) if you are planning to do a hike or other trip in that area during the season. Beside the hiking they have a broad know...

Re: Embassy Report: Russian Visa in Dushanbe

Hi all, Yesterday I applied for a transit or tourist visum for my flight back to NL via 2 airports in Russia. I booked the flight on Saturday and a visum was required. By reading the advice on the visum page in the website I thought that would be easy but it wasn't at all!!!! Actually it was impossi...

Re: Wakhan corridor - tour operator Q&A

I returned last week from the little Pamir. I've traveled as solo woman and only hired a donkey and her owner in Sarhad. For the paperwork, good and reliable contacts in Eshkashim, please ask for Safi Usmani on the bazaar. He asks a good price and all paperwork was done in less than 1,5 hours since ...

Re: Afghan Wakhan to Sarhad - Trip Report

Dear all, I absolutely don't recognise everything that was written above. Yes I met Yard and since I decided I don't want a guide I didn't used his offer. The border police was extremely friendly to me: we had a warm welcome and for the normal rate they drove me to Eshkashim. There Safi Usmani helpe...

Re: Ishkashim border crossing: open or closed?

Hi all, Does anybody know the current situation at the border? People say it's closed but also that it's open. All because the president visits the Pamir region in Murghab and Khorog... I'm not talking about the market but really about the border itself ;) Hopefully anyone has past the border the la...
