South Kyrgystan: Permits / Pamir

Post by Nightjar »


We‘re planning to be in South Kyrgistan (towards Pamir) in around 7 days. We have questions regarding permirs and pamir highway:

1) Border Permit: It says you will need a border permit if you do trekking close to the border. On visit Alay it says that if you visit peak lenin base camp, you might also get through without a permit since there is no check points. Is this the only hike you can do close to the border or are there other popular/great hikes you might need the permit for?

2) We would like to drive on the Pamir Hightway as close as possible to the Tadjik border? Which route is the best to take? Is Bor Doba a good place to pass? From Bor Doba to the Tadjik border it is only 18km; will we need a GBAO permit for that?

Thanks very much for the help.

You don't need a permit for hiking those basic hikes: ... king/alay/

Bor Dobo is where the Kyrgyz border is, you will need a Tajik visa to continue beyond that.
