Hi,

Next month I am planning to go to Artuch Camp from Panjakent.

Does anybody know how to reach Artuch Camp from Panjakent? Aproxiamate timetable, etc? Types of transportation? Cost, etc? Where do they leave from?

I have read about shared taxis,..., but the information is not very clear.

Thanks

Hi

This can be not 100% accurate but anyway.
Taxis and shared taxis wait near the bazaar/main mosque.
The whole taxi to Artuch base camp is about 300 somoni.
Shared taxis go to Yakkakhona village for about 15 somoni. From there hiking about 5 km uphill till the base camp.
Some say there are shared taxis to Artuch village. Not sure about that.
But maybe you can get closer to the base camp by shared taxis to hike less.

Another option is to hire transfer offered by Artuch base camp http://artuch.tj/artuch-camp/
Can ask them if it's possible to join another group transfer to reduce the cost.

Sorry, don't have very clear info. If you have a chance to check out shared taxis and share your experience will be super great.
