For the first part it`s better you apply a border permit (for Teberda). After the trip we stayed some days in a hotel on the south side of Mt. El...

Searching for camping gear/gas in Panjakent

I think, there ist no option in Samarkand. You can buy gas bottles in Penjikent. The name of the shop is Armughon, on the main road. Tel. +992 927746202. A small bottle cost 95 TJS. The owner of the shop speaks English.

Re: Climbing Peak Chimtarga

i'm not to degrade of you, i just want to say not to search on any forum any advice on climbing even easy mountains. Maybe you have better options. I don`t have a guide book or a detailed route description for Chimtarga & Co. I have the book "Trekking in Tajikistan" from Jan Bakker. T...

Re: Climbing Peak Chimtarga

Hi Julia & Mazeno, thanks for your response! We want to do a hike for two weeks in the Fann Mountains and Yagnob Valley with our own tent and food. So we have enough stuff/food to carry. That`s the reason, that I asked for climbing without rope and harness... And no worry, we have experiences in...

Re: Climbing Peak Chimtarga

Hi Julia,

we have experiences with rock climbing and mountaineering. But we are only 2 persons. If there are crevasses, it`s better to go on a rope with 3 or 4. And I would like to go without rope and harness because of the weight...

Re: Climbing Peak Chimtarga

Hi Julia,

thanks for the reply! Is it also dangerous to climb Peak Energia or Peak Zamok (without rope and guide)? Do you have any experiences?

Climbing Peak Chimtarga

Hi,

we want to climb Peak Chimtarga in the Fann Mountains. Is it possible to climb the peak without a rope? Are there crevasses or sections for abseiling? We have some experience with other 5.000er (Mount Kazbek, Elbrus) and we want to do the climb without a guide.

Thanks!

Markus
