Re: Feedback asked on travel itinerary Pamir highway and Uzbekistan

Well Nukus is not that interesting, and what means a trip to the Aral Sea? Do you just see the boats in the sand or do you take the long trip to the actual Aral Sea shore where it is now? We skipped on it. You could spend an extra day in Khiva just to enjoy the atmosphere. Maybe an extra day in Buch...

Re: Anzob pass (not tunnel): open?

Hi Harold, I heard now that the pass is not open to cars but to bikers, and that it is hard. As a cyclist you shouldnt ride the tunnel but find a solution there I think. I dont think it is worth to do the pass just to avoid the tunnel. If you hitch a ride you will notice you are through the tunnel i...

Re: A Car Question

Maybe it is a bit leaking and so not under pressure which allows it to boil earlier causing you to loose coolant. It can be as simple as the radiator cap being bad and letting everything out. If not enough coolant inside the engine, yes it will get hot. When engine is cold, always check under radiat...

Re: Extending car import Tajikistan

We just crossed that border, and it seemed the guy wanted to make an issue of us that we overstayed the 15 days for the car. Then we said the roads were bad and our kids were sick, and we aldo said we went to extend it in Khorog but they didnt want to help us which he didnt really believe. The small...

Re: Self-driving the Pamir

And if the fuel doesnt look clear, run away!

If with a diesel car, fuel in Murghab can be not there or of bad quality. Would be better to stock up as much as you can in Khorog at a normal fuel station.
In Wakhan there is almost no fuel after Ishkashim.

Re: Drone store in Osh? Need propellers

This is about Kyrgystan.
And yes drones are illegal in Uzbekistan but I have seen advertisments for drones jn wedding shootings and even have seen them two times in actions.
If you would have a Dji Phantom you could parts in Uzbekistan I am sure.

Drone store in Osh? Need propellers

Probably a long shot, but does anybody know if there is a store (perhaps camera store) that sells DJI drones? We damaged our DJI Mavic Pro and I want to buy some new drones. Will probably be there in a week or so. Or if somebody is coming to Kyrgystan and is willing to help that would also be great!...

Re: Registration for Sim card in Tajikistan

Very annoying indeed and I cannot answer your question. Other than staying at a different place.

For others reading into the subject, we got a sim card from Megafon in Panjikent centre/bazar without this registration. Only useful if you are coming in overland from Uzbekistan

Re: Looking for advice on accomodation in Dushanbe and Khujand

People are positive about Green House Hostel in Dushanbe. I think they can also help with sim card, but I don't really understand. When we crossed the border we went into Penjikent amd got a sim card there in 10 minutes by showing passport and visa. Nothing about regitration.

Re: Anzob tunnel reports

Okay we just took the tunnel and it was doable by car. Not so bad. But still dont cycle it. And cyclists should have good lighting for the other small tunnels. The climb from north to Anzob tunnel was however very steep at 10% and with very high outside temperatures it makes a lot of cars run a bit ...
