Pamir Highway in March/April

Postby Ianroger » Wed Dec 25, 2013 8:42 pm

Hi there,

Was wondering how busy the highway and region is at the end of April. Will homestays and Yurts be available? Will trucks be available to hitch with? Will the normally limited local transport be running? (eg. Khorog to Ishkashim)

Any advice would be useful. My buddy and I would like to travel without using a tour guide or hired trasnport.

There will be trucks, local transport and homestays available. Transport is at a lower frequency than otherwise. If you are driving yourself, make sure you are prepared for snow.

Pamir Highway in end of March

Me and my friend are planning on doing the route Dushanbe - Khorog - Murghab - Osh at the end of this month. Any recent visitors in that area, that can tell us about the current conditions on the roads and etc? Is it doable/recommended? We will either rent a car with a driver for the entire trip, or just find shareable taxis along the way.

Pamir Highway in March/April

Postby twan2000 » Sat Nov 24, 2018 12:29 pm

Hello everybody !
I want to cross the Pamir road from Douchanbé until Och with my motorbike in March or April. I read different informations about this : some of them said than the road is always open and some others said that the road is closed when there is too much snow.
So my question is : is it possible to cross this road in March or April, and specially with a motorbike (snow is very dangerous for the bikers) ?
Thank you for your help !

The road doesn't have scheduled closures and isn't seasonal, but I assume like all roads it may be closed or impassable after heavy snow.
