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
