Itinerary: Train journey Ankara - Almaty with detours

Postby togreiser » Wed Jul 31, 2019 7:14 am

After about half a year of research on this site, my itinerary for September is almost done. This site and forum is fantastic.

My focus is taking the train with a little extra spice. I will start a Youtube channel for this trip.

Follow me on Instagram for more information: Railwaystories


So this is my route:

Ankara - Van - Tabriz (Train)
Tabriz - Erbil (Arbil) (Taxi/Bus)
Erbil - Lalish - Erbil (Tour with guide)
Erbil - Tehran (Flight)
Tehran - Mashad (Train)
Mashad - Ashgabath (Taxi)
Ashgabath - Darvaza (Crater) - Dasoguz ( Train and prebooked taxi roundtrip from Icoguz train station to the crater)
Dasoguz - Urgench (Taxi)
Urgench - Samarkand (Train)
Samarkand - Tashkent (Train)
Tashkent - Tremez (Train)
Termez - Dushanbe (Train)
Dushanbe - Khorugh (Flight)
Khorugh - Ishkashim (Taxi / local transport)
Ishkashim - Eshkashem - Ishashim ( Daytrip with guide)
Ishkashim - Langar - Murghab - Osh (Taxi / local transport)
Osh - Almaty (Taxi&train or taxi / local transport)
End of trip

As you can see, I like to keep moving. Close to all of this is prebooked.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please let me know

Thanks for the compliments, togreiser. We continue our work to make it better.

And thank you for all your helpful comments on the forum so far! I instructed Saule to follow your instagram account in case we can repost something.

Sounds like a great trip. Enjoy!
