Postby Lovetheworld » Thu Jul 05, 2018 3:19 pm

Old M34 open for cycling?

Postby HvO » Mon Jul 09, 2018 7:01 am

Hello,

Is it possible to cycle the old M34 (Margheb - Ziddi Kalon new M34).
On my map (digital/GPS open map) is written it's closed.

I assume this is the Tavildara pass? It is open.

Hello Steven.
No, I mean the 'old m34 road' which avoid the 'new m34' with the Anzob tunnel.
I mean the 'old m34' from Khujand to Dushanbe through the mountains but not using the anzob tunnel.
Do you know if this 'old road' is open?

Hi Harold, I heard now that the pass is not open to cars but to bikers, and that it is hard.
As a cyclist you shouldnt ride the tunnel but find a solution there I think. I dont think it is worth to do the pass just to avoid the tunnel. If you hitch a ride you will notice you are through the tunnel in 6 minutes.

Just back from Tadjikistan and had a wonderfull time.
What about the Anzob pass.
We cycled the pass in two days from north to south and it is possible.
The road is not good altough we could cycle (sometimes we had to push the bikes).
There are rocks on the road. Bij motorbike it is also possible, but hard.
By car it's impossible.....

I walked the pass... the top was full of snow, so it was hard...then found a way down to the riverbed and from there anzop village... road is destroyed...not possible for cars...bicycles can do it somehow once the snow is melting...
