Re: Trekking to Chaqmaqtin lake

I wasn't on horse myself, but you should be ok if you've done trial riding.
You'll probably have to walk at some parts where it's too steep and unsturdy for the horse.

Re: Trekking to Chaqmaqtin lake

Hi, To answer your question the trek is not easy like some people imply, but you are not rock climbing either. You have to have a minimum of fitness required.

Olgii Eagle Festival

Hi,

I want to go to this festival in early october.

Does anyone know:

1. How to get tickets to the festival ?
2. Getting accommodation during this period? Is it possible to stay with locals?
3. Do I need a special permit for the festival?

Any help much appreciated!

Re: Tajikistan E-visa refusals

How do you know if you visa is stuck?

Altitude Sickeness in the Wakhan Corridor

Hi,

I'm interested in knowing about the altitude sickness experienced in the Wakhan Corridor.

Could you please let me know how it was for you? I am thinking of going to Chaqmaqtin Lake.

Any tips?

Thanks

Landmines in the Wakhan Corridor?

Hi,
I just read somewhere that there are landmines in the Wakhan Corridor.
I can't seem to find much more information on this though.
Is this true?

Thanks.
