Camping gear availability in Bishkek

Post by AndrewRogerson »

I'm about to enter Kaz over the next couple of weeks, and will be working my way down to the Pamir Highway.

Looking to pick up a stove relatively cheap. I know there are stores that sell fuel (redfox etc) but will they also stock lightweight stoves? If so, how much will I be looking to pay?

Regards,

Andrew.

Re: Camping Stove - Almaty/Bishkek

Hey Andrew,

I was in Bishkek in April. No stoves at Red Fox, or Alex.kg. There's a bike shop, Velo Lider that has a camping/hunting shop nearby it. If you ask at Velo Lider they can point you in the right direction. At the hunting shop they might have a stove or know where you could get one, but it's not a guarantee.

Also, ask Nathan on Warmshowers in Bishkek if he's heard of any cyclists who are getting rid of theirs.

Cheers,

Megan

camping gas Bishkek Kyrgyzstan

Post by ChaVer »

Hi,

We plan on camping in Kyrgyzstan and cook ourselves sometimes with camping gas.
Can we buy camping gas in Bishkek? In which shop?
And what stove we need to bring to be able to use the gas?

Thanks!
