Best stopover between Khorog and Dushanbe?

Postby Kohop1218 » Sat Feb 18, 2017 4:57 pm

Hello to all - I am planning a self drive tour though out the Pamir region in July of this year, and currently I'm trying to decide on the best midway point between Khorog & Dushanbe. Would you recommend taking A385 to Kulob or M41 to Tavildara leaving from Khorog.

Any input appreciated

Thanks!

Midway, Kalaikum.
There you can decide to take Kulob or Tavildara route.

The road between Khorog and Kalaikhum is really bad and especially the last part takes a lot of time.. Driving there by yourself takes quite some courage. From Kalaikhum to Kulob it is better. The latter is a nice city to spend 1-2 days. From Kulob to Dushanbe the road is good. In shared taxi it took about 2,5 hours including a lunch break. I heard from others that the other road to Dushanbe is more direct in terms of km, but really bad.

This input definitely helps! We are self-driving and recently decided to flip the direction of travel to help ease the rate of our ascent in the Pamirs. As of now we have settled on driving from Dushanbe --> Kulob --> Kalaikum --> Khorog

Thank you all!
