Re: Fann Mtns or Yagnob Valley?

I can't comment on the Yagnob Valley, but the Fann Mountains are very different than the Pamirs. The Fanns are much more accessible than Yagnob, as well.

Re: Pamir Highway- 3rd Week of May 2019

1. Yes.
2. Yes. Obviously Khorog - Bishkek will involve backtracking the entire way or doing something completely different and going up through Dushanbe and Khojand, for example. But in neither situation will it be possible to do this in one week.

Re: Help with itinerary - which route to Kyrgyzstan?

Most of your questions are answered in the subtopics accessible at: https://caravanistan.com/planning/ If you look at a map, you can see that it is possible to go from Osh to Song Kol via Kazarman, but the problem is that this is a difficult road (though I believe it is in the process of being impro...

Re: Travel routes

Getting a visa extension doesn't mean you get to leave Iran a...
