Trangia burner fuels in Dushanbe?

Postby Hugo » Fri Aug 04, 2017 3:38 am

Hi all!

We are looking for fuel for our trangia burner in Dushanbe. It can work either with Bio Ethanol (now available in Tadjikistan? http://news.tj/en/news/tajikistan/20071 ... n-dushanbe), Methylated Spirits (only found 70% in Uzbek pharmacies), isopropyl Alcohol or any other pure alcohol (preferably withe the highest % of alcohol).

I have read on the website that "pure alcohol and cartridges for camping stoves are available in Dushanbe" (http://caravanistan.com/tajikistan/pamir-highway/) but could not get the names of places where we can purchase it.

Does anybody know where to by fuels for trangia in Dushanbe?
Thanks for your help!

The bazaar would be the first place to look. Otherwise, Green house hostel might have what you need.

I can't speak for Dushanbe but managed to get 100ml of 95% "Spirit" (basically, Ethyl-alcohol) in a pharmacy in far flung Murgab, easily enough. 6 Som, to use in my Caldera Cone so Pharmacies are probably your best bet. It's 95% but burns less hot than others I've used with that percentage so there may be something else in it.

It's sold as an antiseptic, essentially. Photo below. Best to decant into a better bottle after purchase though as it leaks slightly from the lid unless kept upright (the pharmacist herself notified me about this issue).
