https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/pag ... 95226&v=bc This link is a little dated but I found it to be a good day-to-day breakdown of the trip overall. https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/pag ... 88657&v=2b This one is more recent with some pictures, but mostly focuses on the less traveled Bartang valley route. Good luck!

Hi, back in 2009 I had the following breakdown, went the southern route, as military blocked the northern route because of shootings, then Wakhan (second number is altimeters):
Kochkar Bulak 150 2350
Iranian street worker camp at Panj River 139 2150
Jorf 115 1450
Shidz 117 1900
Pish 70 950
Bolbar 110 1000
After Langar 100 1500 then Khargush
Bulunkul 110 1200
before Murgab 100 1000
Muskol 125 1500
Sary Tash 145 1000
Gultcha 100 1000
Jalalabad 140 1300

Hope this helps (went directly to Jalalabad (passing by Osh) and then further to Almaty), it should be feasable if you don't catch up some illness and like to do long days.
