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

Lake Sarez, Tajikistan

Postby someteaplease » Thu Jun 19, 2014 7:54 am

Hi There,

I seem to remember that a permit is required to visit the lake, is it also required to use the road i.e not go to the lake?
Where is it possible to obtain this permit? and does the road connect all the way side to side?
And what condition is the road?

Many Thanks
Dave

see http://caravanistan.com/visa/tajikistan/gbao-permit/

Quote: The Sarez permit can be obtained free of charge at the Committee for Emergency Situations at Lohuti Street in Duhanbe, opposite the Tajik Sodirot Bank.

For Zorkul, you can obtain the permit in Khorog and Murghab. In Murghab, the building is down near the hospital: your homestay provider should be able to point you to the right place. Alternatively ask at the tourist information office and they’ll point you in the right direction.

Guys,

And how long it takes to obtain permit for Sarez in Dushanbe? Is it possible to get it instantly? We do not planning to spend more than one day in Dushanbe? Is it still free of charge?

I asked few travel agancies and they told it cost 50$ per day and guide is mandatory. - is it true?

We will by cycling through Bartang and we will thinking to go for one day to Sarez Lake.

Same question regarding Zorkul.
How long it takes to get permit (either in Khorog or Murgab) and how much cost?

Thanks,
Bart

Maciek,

We will going opposite way (from Khorog/Rushan). We will start probably from 21st Aug, so possibly we will meet in half way :)

Do you know anything about Sarez permit?

That's great. No, unfortunately I don't. I don't go there so I have done no research.
