Re: Fann Mountains or Alay mountains (or other)

Hi Steven, keep it that way. Fan Mountain Travel is a horrible company. They stood me up at Artuch. I had to arrange transportation back to Penjakent and basically break in to their office to retrieve my things I left behind for the trek.

Re: Fann Mountains or Alay mountains (or other)

Fann Mountains or Alay mountains (or other)

What is in your eyes the best area for trekking in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan? I am planning a trip that starts in Uzbekistan (Samarkand) and then goes on to Tajikistan (passing the Fann mountains) and Kyrgyzstan (via the Pamir Highway), to end the trip in Almaty (not sure if I'll take a detour to Ka...
