Self driving Bartang Valley to Kara-Kul with Rav4?

Postby Kimbbe » Sat Mar 09, 2019 10:19 am

Hi,
Do you think that it’s possible to drive a Rav4 from Khorog to Karakul via Bartang Valley?
Thanks for your help

I personally would not do it with a Rav4. Better to have a more serious 4x4 rather than a crossover like a Rav4.

Experts may have a different opinion?

certainly you will have big problems at kok jar corner as it requires low gear transmission to drive up the corner.
not mentioning if the water level of the side streams in the central part of the valley is high and shoves the rubble.
