Re: Older travelers on the Silk Road Q&A

Can't really help you, but it would be good to state your nationality. I'm assuming you're from UK?
We just got our Uzbekistan visa here locally in the Netherlands without much issues, but that is not a comparable situation.

Re: Tajikistan E-visa Q&A

Does anybody know if you can also apply online with the E-visa (and GBAO) with young kids?
Our plan is to decide later, while already on the roadtrip, to see if we go via Tajikistan and apply online a week before.

Re: Mondial Football and Russian visa

You may want to look into a transit visa, although that me be restricting in time.

Re: Bartang valley, longer or shorter?

Hi Mazeno, thanks for the info! We will be driving a slightly improved Hiace 4x4 van, 28 to 30cm ground clearence. Old style parttime 4x4 with low gearing. And snorkel.

Re: Bartang valley, longer or shorter?

Thanks Steven. I did some checking with openstreetmaps. And apparently the whole Bartang valley west to east is 288km, so from the M41 to M41 again. Doing that by staying on the M41 is roughly 480km but with better service. That is probably a bit faster, since Bartang will be quite tough in road con...

Re: 4x4 necessary?

As said, not necessary for the main roads, even some mountain passes. But high ground clearance would be good. A van like a transporter is usually not that high. The italian and french vans, like Fiat Ducato and similar, from the nineties usually have a bit more ground clearance. Even some of the Eu...

Re: How to receive documents from Europe to Iran?

If it is passports, then it might be difficult. I'm having a flashback to someone with the same name and nationality who was not able to get their second passports into Iran (with the visa for next country). Also using DHL but it is not about DHL, it is about either German or Iranian customs (not le...

Bartang valley, longer or shorter?

We're not sure if we can include Tajikstan into our trip, but if we do, we will not spend much time in the country unfortunately. So if we do it, it would be coming from Uzbekistan, over Dushbane, see a piece of the Pamir Highway, and into Kyrgistan. We will drive ourselves with our own 4x4 van. i'v...
