Hi guys!
I am aiming to visit the Bartang valley and Pamir Highway (14 days, starting and finishing in Dushanbe due to the land border restrictions). I plan to start around August 13th. On my list is a hike to the Grim-Grizhmaylo glacier and a short hike into the Darshai Gorge. I already reached out to a driver. Anyone interested to join? The itinarary can be adjusted. Looking forward on replies!
Your dates align very well for when I plan on being in this region. I am most definitely interested.

I'm interested to join for a hike to Grum-Grzhimailo glacier. Darshai you plan just to go up to hot spring and back, or explore the valley head? I already arrived to Pamirs, plan to do trekking around here till end of summer. So I don't need share transport from Dushanbe. Just maybe joining from Rushan.

Short video from Darshai gorge. (~ halfway between Darshai village and hot springs).



This overhung section of trail ("ovring" in Pamiri ) has its own name Khung-I-Parin meaning Sanguinary wall.

If you have the time, the upper Darshay gorge looks pretty wild: https://satellites.pro/Tajikistan_map#3 ... .825208,16

Wow, good link with satellites images, walked all the way up virtual to the glacier.
Would be epic the do the hike approx. 25 miles one way.
Multiple day trekking with some other people.

Hi all again,

I originally started this post without having any fixed flight or plan. I'm gonna land in ushanbe on the 8th of August by night and gonna jump into a shared taxi to Khorog. From there, I plan to visit the Wakhan Corridor and Bulunkul lake, then back to Khorog and up towards the Fann Mountains for a 1-week long trek. Will anyone be around at that time? I'm quite flexible on plans. Also likely to visit the Bartang valley up to Khafrazdara. Or maybe to a complete circle Khorog - Murgab - Karakol - Bartang - Khorog. Would be nice to meet some tavel buddy around.

Cheers

Hi,

I'm planning to visit Tajikistan in September, and am looking for other travellers to share a 4x4 for Pamir Highway, either as a circular trip within Tajikistan (if landborder to Kyrgyzstan still closed) or the standard route from Dushanbe - Osh. I'm flexible on dates in September. :)

Anyone interested?

Hi Bjorn!
My plans have shifted and will be in Tajikistan at the beginning of September, starting from Dushanbe. I do not think that the land border to Kyrgyzstan will open this year. When do you plan to head out of Dushanbe and what is your planned travel route?
Cheers, Joan

Hi Joan!
That sounds good. I could start a trip from Dushanbe from the 4 or 5th of September the earliest. I haven't booked flights yet, as I'm hoping to find someone to share with and am therefore flexible. The itinerary I have looked at is a 10 day circular route within Tajikistan: Dushanbe - Kalai Khum - Baratang Valley - Khorog - Wakhan Corridor - Bulunkul - Muraghab - Karakul Lake - Khoburubot pass - Dushanbe.
Let me know what you think!
