It will be closed. Oybek is the next best thing but it is a long way round. See the border crossing pages for an overview.

Tajikistan Penjikent border crossing

Postby Laroco » Tue Dec 06, 2016 1:57 pm

We will be travelling the SilkRoad this spring, expecting to arrive in Samarkand early June. We read the Tajikistan Penjikent border crossing might be opening in 2016. Any news on that? would love to travel via the Fan Mountains down the pamir highway
Thanks for any info
