Kyrgyzstan into Tajikistan by bike

Post by matt2matt2002 »

Sorry folks. I posted this question in the wrong section. Hopefully this is the correct spot.
7+ years ago I crossed at Batken. I understand that there has been trouble at this crossing in recent years.
Is it now safe?
I will be cycling.
If not safe, where else to cross when coming south from Bishkek / Osh into Tajikistan?
Thanks

The Batken area was out of bounds and the border crossing there was closed. I don't think it has changed.

Thanks. So how/ where can you cross by land?
