Cities and lakes questions

If you had to choose one city to visit between khujand, istaravshan, and Panjakent which would you choose? I'm interested in architecture, grand mosques, markets, and lots of walking. Perhaps similar to Samarkand or Bukhara. How does the 7 lakes compare to iskanderkul for a 1 day or overnight trip u...

Re: Recommendations: Samarkand -> Panjakent -> Dushanbe!

Thl989, when leaving Panjakent what town or lake can you take the shared taxi to ? Do you know if this goes in the morning to or just afternoon? I like the idea of taking a short trip to the lakes. I wasn't planning on staying over but it does sound pretty neat. Thanks

Somon Air

Does anyone know if Somon air offers flights during the winter months? I see the schedule on the website only goes out to end of October.

I am interested in traveling from Moscow or Istanbul to Dushanbe or vice versa.


Thanks

Re: Q&A: Door to Hell

I concur, Thanks Alberto for your post. Do you have other posts that talk more about your itinerary in Turkmenistan? Can I assume you used a Transit Visa? Thanks

Re: Turkmenistan July/August 2018: visa, money, transport, accommodation

This is a great thread, thanks for taking the time to post. Did you ever have trouble buying train tickets the same day you wanted to use the train? Did you use any agencies for ticket or hotel assistance or just show up and handle? I like the idea of timing the trip to Darvaza so you see it at nigh...

Re: Dushanbe to Iskanderkul

rinq2504, what did you end up doing for transportation? I am also interested in a day tour to iskanderkul. The rates I have seen for private tours are cost prohibitive. Is it reasonable to hire a driver for the day to do round trip?

Thanks
