Samarkand to Dushanbe

Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

Samarkand to Dushanbe

Post by Jasmin »

Hi everyone,

I am planning a trip, spring 2017, and would like to know if anyone here has crossed the border: Denau-Tursanzade. What is the best way to get from Samarkand to the border? Is there maybe matrushkas to a city that is close to the border and then I would just take a cab to the border and then another one from to Dushanbe after the border crossing?

Thanks so much for your help!
Jasmin
