Transport between Samarkand and Dushanbe

Post by Barny1233 »

Hi,

With certain sources and websites mentioning border tensions between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan what would be the best way to travel between Samarkand and Dushanbe?

Rome2Rio mentions a rail connection between the two but it goes infrequently. Does anyone know much about the rail route?

Or are taxis/mashrutka's any other means of transport between the two any better?

Cheers

There's a weekly train between Tashkent and Dushanbe that passes through Samarkand.
In addition there are two weekly trains between Volgograd and Dushanbe that also pass through Samarkand.
You can find more info about them in the rail section of this forum.

If you want to go overland then you'll likely end up going via Panjakent, easily reachable from Samarkand by marshrutka or shared taxis, more details in the forum as well as on the relevant pages of the travel guide.
