Details on Gudurolum border Turkmenistan-Iran

Postby Aksel » Tue Aug 14, 2018 12:45 pm

Hallo, has anyone experience on the South-West border point from Turkmenistan into Iran?
Google has some info on the railway border crossing. But what about crossing by car?
- what are the opening days and hours? Any special hours on a Sunday?
- what is the road quality from Magtymguly/Garrygala to Gudri-Olum?

The "pin" on the Caravanistan border crossings map is incorrect by the way.
The BP is actually further south, in the area Incheboron, Etrek, Gudri-Olum.
Looks like not too many travellers use this BP?

I have only ever heard of 1 person getting through that one. Did you get your visa with this entry point?

Please let us know the exact GPS coordinates of the border crossing and I will update accordingly.

The visa request was approved! To travel by own car and a Turkmen guide to Nokur, then (mandatory) continue in a Turkmen car via the valley Magtymguly/Garrygala to Gudri-Olum, then by own car cross the Incheboron border. We were so happy, but then we asked … err … how does our car get to the border when we're in another car? According to the tour guide company, the visa officials did not care. So had to cancel the visa, change the itinerary with the normal border crossing into Iran, and all was fine.

I plan on taking this border crossing in April. It will be on a Sunday, so there should be a 14:00 train to Bereket. When I arrive early and have walked around a bit in Gyzyletrek, I might try to hitchhike or take shared transportation to Serdar as well.

Has anyone been here in recent times?
