Uch-Kurgan Suusamyr Kochkor

Post by chiara e lau »

Hi
We are going to travel this august in Uzbekistan and Kirghizistan.
We would like to pass the border at Uch-Kurgan.
Does anybody know if it's a good way? Or is it better by Osh?

The idea is to go from Uch-Kurgan to Kochkor by Suusamir, with local transports.
Has anybody done this route?
Suggestions?

Thanks

Yes uchkurgan is a good way, see uzbek border crossings page for more info. I prefer it to the crossing at osh. There are few public transports in your route but shared taxi is cheap.

Are you speaking also about the Suusamyr-Kochkor section? Because I'm not sure there is much in the way of share taxis through the valley.

You are right! I was too quick there. Hope the OP is still listening in, for the stretch to Song Kol you will most likely need to contact a tour operator in advance. Once on Song Kul there is a lot of transport going up and down to Kochkor in summer and it is not too difficult to catch a ride if you are 1 or 2 people.
