Re: Transit via VKO Moscow on separate tickets

I think you do need a Russian transit visa. I've got a TXL-DME-OSS flight on S7 Airlines, all on the same ticket; however, since Kyrgyzstan is in the same customs union as Russia, I decided to go for a transit visa. What makes me think you need one is: 1) Neither the consulate nor the airline could ...

Re: Need some recommended trekking routes in Pamir Highway

Hey there! I've done some pre-planning for something like that too, but in the end I decided not to return to Murghab and to just trek on the Alay mountains with Visit Alay (as recommended by Steven too). Anyhow, what I gathered from looking around on the Net is that there's fairly little, in terms ...

Re: Khorogh Airport and Tajik Air bankruptcy

I think they also needed a quasi-VTOL airplane for that route. Tajik Air had an An28 if I remember well.

Re: Best Country/City for Shopping in Central Asia

FC Kairat will be easy to buy at the stadium, they have a fan shop. Torpedo Ust-Kamenogorsk..not sure if they are easily found. Astana might become a collector's item soon now they will have to change their name. Great news about FC Kairat! With regards to the others... usually, over here, one can ...

Re: Best Country/City for Shopping in Central Asia

Resuscitating this thread for a quick question: I was wondering if there are places, in Almaty, to buy local sports teams' t-shirts and other paraphernalia. I tried (and failed) to purchase the Buxoro PFC home kit when in Bukhara but I'd love to lay my dirty hands on a FC Kairat jersey or, failing t...

Re: North Pakistan to Osh via Xinjiang

Hi Jose I'm not really answering your question points 1&2, but... I don't remember seeing a Osh-Urumqi flight at all. Checking the daily departures and arrivals in Kyrgyzstan the only airport linked to Urumqi seems to be Bishkek. Also, are you planning to take the same Kyrgyz-plated rental car f...

Re: Buchara or Samarkand... where to stay for 1 day

Bukhara without a shadow of a doubt. Only one day for either is a shame though.
