Bike trip from Teheran to Oulan Bator

Postby Gregoire » Tue May 28, 2019 12:38 pm

Hi there!

I plan to travel from Teheran to Oulan Bator from the 20th of June to the 30th of August. I am a bit worried about some aspects of the trip:

- In the Pamir Highway and the Whakan Valley, how cold can it be in summer ?

- Can we find spare gaz bootles on this way or is it better to take a fuel cooker ?

- What is the longest distance without crossing any village or house ?

- As i'm travelling alone, are there others bikepackers on this way ?

1. snow on the passes is always possible
2. see the different sections on camping at for more info and links to threads on where to get camping gas bottles
3. Probably between Murghab and Karakul or Murghab and Alichur
4. Yes, a lot. More cyclists than cars on Pamir
