Kokand to Tashkent alternative route

Post by VeloContinentale »

Hi, I am looking for advice/experience for a gravel road I found on Google earth. It is located east of the A373, runs through the village of Chadak and joins the main road just after Kamchiq pass.

It looks like a way to avoid the big traffic and enjoy the scenery instead. At the same time on Google earth it looks as if the road might not be used any longer and there seem to be a few old mines there.

Does anyone know if it is possible to cycle it? Is it open? Is it allowed?

Thank you

I see it's on OSM as well, that's a good sign. On the other, I do seem to notice a type of gate on the lower entrance to the road? I guess you will just have to go and check it out for yourself, or maybe ask some locals when you are in the neighbourhood.
