Parking overnight, safe at Jizev?

Hi,

Maybe a difficult question to answer, but just looking for a general answer in terms of risk of car break-ins. We will be driving our own car and are planning to do the Jizeu trek in Bartang Valley, staying one night in the village. The start of the trek is just on the side of the Bartang Valley road with no houses anywhere near. I have no idea about the potential for car break-ins in this area, or in Tajikistan i general. Would it be fine to park the car by the side of the road overnight while we are away on the trek, leaving most of our luggage covered in the car?

There is a garage with a couple of trees in front about 100m before the bridge to Jizev. You can park your car under the trees there. That's at least what we have done in the past.

Dear Chris

Nothing is going to happen to the car you park on this side of the river. There are many other travellers will be around whose driver usually waits for them on this side of the river to pick them up. Enjoy your trip.
