Re: Visas for Uzbekistan - Turkmenistan - Iran on the road

Hello, I am in Bishkek at the moment, willing to get an iranian visa. I read in the comments above that if I get the LOI here from Parsia Travel they will ask for a copy of the travel insurrance.

Re: Visas for Uzbekistan - Turkmenistan - Iran on the road

I think getting the Iran visa in Bishkek is much easier than in Beijing. Probably I was just unlucky that I had to wait long time for the LOI code from MFA in Tehran. Anyway, here is my report how it went on: After getting my Uzbek and Iran visa in Kyrgystan I went to Uzbekistan. Unfortunately, beca...

Re: China/Kiyrgyzstan:Torugart or Irkeshtam pass?

Hi Gea, from my experience it was quite easy to find shared transport. If you arrive at the bus station or border and look like a foreign tourist, everyone (boarder guards, truck drivers, taxi drivers) will know what you want. - At Kashgar bus station a taxi driver found me, before I found him. Alth...

Re: China/Kiyrgyzstan:Torugart or Irkeshtam pass?

I would recommend Irkeshtam as well. You can take Kashgar - Osh bus leaving Kashgar International bus station on Mon and Thu at 10am Beijing time. Beginning of April there were still tickets available half an hour before departure. I just took a solo taxi on a Friday morning. 150 RMB to Wuqia/Uluqqa...
