Re: Trip planning for end September 2020

Thanks AreWeThereYet. It is open ended (intentionally so). Perhaps my question wasn't worded well enough. What I am wanting to know is if arriving to Tajikistan and Kyrgystan for end of September/October is too late to be able to hike or cross some of the passes and then head to Uzbekistan after tha...

Re: Trip planning for end September 2020

Thanks Steven. Do you think we could still make it to Tajik and Kyrg at the end of September through October and then go to Uzbek in November? That's what I'd really like to do but am worried about mountain passes and the like. I suspect it will be quite chilly in places in Uzbekistan when we are th...

Trip planning for end September 2020

Hello! I'm planning to visit Central Asia later this year, probably arriving late(ish) September. We can be in the area as long as our Visas allow (we're US citizens) so time once we arrive is not the concern. The concern is weather and recommendations for where we can/should go and what we could do...

Accommodation - booking in advance or on the fly?

Hello We will be traveling to Uzbek, Tajik, Kygyz and Kazakhstan from the months of May to beginning of August. I usually like to book accommodation in advance so that I know I have a place to stay and can feel a bit more comfortable knowing that I have somewhere to rest my head when I arrive. That ...

Road conditions from Tajikistan to Kyrgystan mid/end June

Hello!

We are planning on an overland trip from Tajikistan to Kyrgystan in the middle toward or nearing end of June. Can I expect the roads to be in good condition at that point or is it still too early to expect snow and ice to be gone from the elevations?

Thanks so much.

Re: Train service Khiva to Bukhara

Thank you Milad. Sadly, I don't speak Russian, though am going to try to learn a few phrases that might be helpful while there. I was able to translate the site with Google (a fairly good translation) and was able to get the information I sought. Thanks again for your help.

Best

Train service Khiva to Bukhara

Hello! We are planning to take the train from Bukhara to Khiva (which I am finding train times for) but I cannot find train times for the return from Khiva to Bukhara. Do any of you know the time tables for this route? I'm just using this info for planning and understanding if there are certain days...
