Re: Trekking tour from Osh to Tash Rabat

When are you planning to come? How long would you like to trek for?

There are definitely better options with equally beautiful scenery where you can find others and have a lower price.

The next direct flight is on the 18th. Now I'm *very* tempted to escape Europe....
