Re: Central Asia Planning

Well! I think he is free to plan as much as possible if he wants to know everything in advance. By the way, I would really suggest to plan the main topics (visa, air transport, some land transport in difficult places and money getting) and let the other things to come as long as you travel.

Re: From bukhara to osh

Just one comment. There are direct trains from Bukhara to Andijan, actually a night train will drop you in Andijan at around 14:00. From the train station in Andijan is quite simple to walk to the point where most of the shared taxis to the border depart from. Another point is deciding whether you w...

Re: ATM situation in Uzbekistan

Actually, I am sorry to tell that just received information about a new law in Uzbekistan that will mean that ATMs will only issue national currency, not any foreign one.

Re: Am I getting ripped off on the Silk Road?

Actually I took a similar trip in early september. We were two people travelling from Samarkand to Osh (and then took a round tour in Fergana to Tashkent). We arranged all ourselves and did make it for around 600 USD per person (15 days), besides the plane ticket to Samarkand and from Osh. It´s quit...

Best treks in Pamir Highway

Hello: I have searched, and didn´t find a topic regarding this. I am doing Pamir Highway in september and, besides the road, would really like to have one day for a kind of nice trek (nothing very difficult).

Budget is not a problem, although would not like to spend more than 100 - 150 USD per day. Wish I could have as long as three or four weeks... but for me that´s ...

Mongolia in 10 days... Is it worth?

I am looking forward to travelling there next year (spring, summer), but I can´t go longer than 10 days and, taking into account the distances, the lack of public transport and the unavailability of own wheels, would appreciate opinions on whether this can be interesting and it´s possible to visit i...
