Weather in Early June? Visa and Border Q's.  (5 Answers)

I am planning a trip to Tajikistan in early June. The game plan is to fly into Dushanbe June 1st then travel overland to khorugh and onto Murghob and back. I will then head south from Murghob and head into Afghanistan and work my way toward Kabul.

So my question is: Is the Pamir Highway going to be thawed out enough to make this possible?
-What sort of public transport is cheapest and most practical?
-What is the best way to acquire homestay style accomodation?

Also, Does anyone have any info on the Afghan border below Khorugh? And any info on obtaining an Afghan visa would also be helpful.

Thanks.

Importing a horse/questions please :o)  (1 Answer)

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure if anyone here will know the answers to my questions or some suggestions of places to find the answers. I have inquiries into the embassies and to a few tour companies but have not heard anything back and am trying to expand my quest for answers. We have also looked at the embassy websites to no avail.

1. What are the Kazakhstan's restrictions and regulations on the import and
export of horses?
For example what paperwork is needed as far as vaccinations, proof of
ownership?

2. Are there any tests the horses will have to take once in your country
if they come from another?

3. Will the horses need to be registered anywhere on entry to your
country, or upon their purchase?

4. Are there any border crossings where horses are restricted from
crossing into and out of the country?

5. Are there any border crossings where it would be easier to
import/export a horse, in your opinion?

Any help on any of these questions would be absolutely amazing. We are trying to decide our route, but that all depends on which borders we may cross with horses and which we cannot. The plan is to travel through Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan to start.

Thank again for your time and knowledge!

-Noelle

Charities  (2 Answers)

Hi everyone,

I'd really appreciate any help anyone can provide in the following area.

I am looking to find a charity in Tajikistan that I could possibly volunteer with for a bit or help raise money for. I really want to find a good one that actually helps people, or animals if at all possible, and that isn't too corrupt, i.e. most funds actually go towards charity. I would really like to be able to volunteer there for a bit as I pass through the country. I know most places don't like random foreigners interrupting their daily routine, but I'd be willing to donate money as well.

Thanks for any ideas or suggestions!

How to get from Dushanbe to Samarkand ?

What is the best way to get from Dushanbe to Sammarkand ?
Several postings seem to indicate that the drive from Dushanbe to Penjikent is horrible and advise against this road. Is this true ?
Are the alternatives, e.g. flying to Khujunad and taking a train/bus from there or taking the train via Termez, any better ?

Thank you,

George

Travel Companion  (2 Answers)

Hey guys,

I'll be travelling Central Asia in June - July this year (2007), so I was wondering if anyone will be out there around that time and maybe would like to travel together. Here's a brief itinerary:

Start off in Pakistan - up the Karakoram Highway crossing into Kashgar (China) - then into Kyrgyztan - down through the Pamir Mountains and the Hindu Kush crossing into Tajikistan and finally ending up at Dushanbe. Following that, I have no plans as yet but I hope to cross into Afghanistan into Kabul if security conditions permit, otherwise head east or maybe head back to Pakistan.

Hope to hear from all you thrill seekers !!!

Thank you for any help !

Russian Hiker missed in Wahkan corridor ! Do you know anything that could help ?  (1 Answer)

Hello all,
In “my” German Trekkingforum, I have read that a Russian trekker, Sergej, is missing while hiking in the south of Tajikistan / Pamirs.

Please find below the English description, which already has been posted in some hiking forums. Although I am aware that VT is not necessarily a hiking community, I don’t want to miss any possibility.

If anyone knows anything, please don’t post here, but in the German Trekkingforum, which has the English settings as well. It is here, where a friend of Sergej is reading and posting as well. You can answer there also without registration (we have checked this).
This is the post:


Here is the flyer with description also in Farsi:


Here is a map, made with GoogleEarth, where his friend has drawn Sergej’s rough route:


Thanks already in advance.
Ingrid

PS:
I will post the description as answer to this post.
