BTW I run in every cities (but Osh).

In total I run 495km

If you like I can post my garmin route if you like to see where I got.

The only "problem" I had was in Mashad: in a Park I was told by a police officer to go away because my shorts. And maybe in Biskek I found my self running in the north part around a part of the city that seemed to be the poorest part and not so safe... but anyway I am alive :p

If you have a particularly nice route in certain cities, I think that could be useful for other running travelers.

Hey ico84,

I am doing a very similar route and would appreciate some feedback.

1. How did you get from Konye Urgench to Khiva? (Mode of Transport? Time? Cost?)
2. How did you get from Tashkent to Khujand? (Mode of Transport? Time? Cost?)
2. How did you get from Khujand to Osh? (Mode of Transport? Time? Cost?)

Thanks!

1) till the border: the guide of the tour I booked (about 90minutes but I was told that sometimes the traffic jam is awful). After by taxi. 20$ (I guess yo u can pay 10$ if you speak russian). It is about 40 minutes.

2) http://caravanistan.com/forum/viewtopic ... 098#p10098

3) I copy and paste a message I wrote

The taxi brought me to the "shared taxi station for 20som. There I got in a car to Isfara alone for 70 som (let's call this guy Charlie) . Once in Isfara charlie asked for a shared taxi to Batken but no one was going over the border. Eventually he found one just for me for 60som. Here starts the only problem I got. Charlie asked me the 60s to give to the new driver and I gave him. But before leaving we found a shared taxi for 100 som direct to Osh, so I opted out to get with this one. Therefore I asked Charlie the 60som back but I started to speak in Russian something like "no problem no problem,I will give the 60s to the new driver" . I knew it was not true and in fact Charlie left with 60s in his pocket. :( the trip was not so good because we were supposed to be in 6 in the van but eventually we left in 8 people. What is more the driver made a lot of stops during the 6h30m journey. One that drove me crazy was just after the lunch : we had to stop 25minutes at a mosque because one of the people had to clean his feet and pray hallah! Anyway what is important I arrived in Osh just in time to get in the airport to catch the plane to Bishkek!...

Hey ico84, thanks for this!

1. Which route did you take between Konye and Khiva (see attachments)?
2. Why didn't you get the train Tashkent --> Andijon then taxi to Osh? Seems much less complicated.
3. " "

I see, you're one of those guys.... :lol:

Don't worry, I once swam across a crocodile infested river to stand in Angola and "tick it off".

I'm looking into doing something on the Pamir Highway across to Afghanistan also. :shock:
