Buying trekking food supplies in Tajikistan

Postby teraz » Sun Jul 29, 2018 3:08 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to buy pure oats (for breakfast)? Is it something one can find everywhere, or special and only in dushanbe or something impossible? Or at least some muesli?

It may sound stupit for somebody, but for me it is quite essential, as we are going to TJK for 30 days, spend most of the time on trails and this is the go breakfast for me many years :)

We plan to hike at wakhan and fann mountains too, if it helps.

Thanks for any response :)

Don't expect to find it much outside Dushanbe. On the Pamir maybe you will find some oats in Khorog but even that is unsure.

You can get oats in most major cities at the supermarkets. They come in bags called gerkulus.

Muesli game is strong in Dushanbe, I see a good selection at Tim's supermarket near Rudaki Park.

In the past we had no problems finding oats in Khorog. Ask for "Gerkules" (you can also try it in other villages). In China we sometimes had difficult times finding oats. Muesli or oats are also our preferred breakfast.

teraz, how was your experience? did you find oats and muesli? where were you successful?

i have the same issue. i plan to cycle there for four weeks and usually eat lots of muesli since i dont carry a stove.

The small supermarket "Arzanda" by the Opera-Ballet Theatre always has some Russian and European muesli. Plain. Chocolate-Banana. Berry. Whatever. I've always found it there.

But there is now a massive Auchan supermarket in Dushanbe with a good cereal selection also.
