      Dushanbe Feb 22, 2014 at 6:31 PM

      What's the best way to get there? I read that the flight there is not for the faint of heart and it sounds like the train is quite a long ride. My first option would be to fly. Do yo know of any carriers that fly direct? It looks like Air Astana only has a connecting flight from Almaty. Is there any overland connections via bus or group tour I could take? Thanks in advance. Paul

      What are my risks!
      What should I wear?
      Should I stay at his house or should I invest in a hotel?

      Weather in Early June? Visa and Border Q's.

      Tajikistan Mar 2, 2009 at 4:19 PM

      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.

      Importing a horse/questions please :o)

      Tajikistan Oct 25, 2008 at 7:06 PM

      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

      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!

      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 ?

      Tajikistan Dec 18, 2007 at 2:19 AM

      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,
