Karakol to Kazakh border (or Almaty)

Postby travisthetrout » Thu Sep 05, 2019 12:06 pm

Hello all

We (two people) are planning on travelling from Karakol to Almaty via the Eastern border (via Kegen) onMonday or Tuesday (9. or 10.9.).

We have been offered a quote of:

- USD 60 to the border
- USD 160 for the whole trip,

both of which are quite expensive for the two of us. Is anyone by chance planning to do the same and willing to share the costs?

I just arrived in Karakol, you've probably already left.
I'm planning the same route to return to Almaty.
I'd be interested to know how you got on..
I've been quoted 3000som by a couple of taxi drivers to the border then( from elsewhere on here) seemingly 20usd to Kegen.
I'm going to see if there's transport from Kegen to Saty/ Kolsai, but it's not looking likely, and getting cold perhaps.
All the best.

Oops sorry, only saw this now. In the end we decided to hitchhike (you can see my report in my post history) and had quite a day. How did you get on?
