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

I did! A female "zikr" in the town of Duisi in Pankisi Gorge, Georgia. A bit more low-intensity compared to this one, but also really special.

The has taken over at Caravanistan HQ. Just trying to keep everything afloat for the moment, no ETA on future work...:-(

Hi all, just adding to this post, what many have already confirmed. Travel to Chechnya and Dagestan IS safe. I'm an American and live in the North Caucasus, running English-speaking tours. There is a lot of security at checkpoints and throughout these two republics, which is understandable with the conflicts from the 1990s and early 2000s, but as a result things are much more stable for travelers. As a foreigner traveling thru the region, you may occasionally be asked questions at checkpoints, but this is normal, you aren't being singled out. Feel free to reach out if anyone has any questions......
