Can anyone enlighten me on finding a driver to travel from Dushanbe towards the Wakhan Corridor?
I am doing some research for a television documentary, where an adventurer could be travelling to Dushanbe in June, then onwards along the Pamir Highway as the start of a very exciting journey.
I'd like to get an idea of the situation when finding a driver for the Pamir Highway? We are hoping to do this while waiting for the GBAO permit and possibly visas too. What would be your tips for finding a safe, reliable and also very important - friendly driver? Is there a central location good to find someone or should we plan this before arrival?
Any insights / advice is very welcome
Thank you and have a fantastic day!
Hi fellow travelers!
Excuse me for the silly headline.
If you had the choice to stay two weeks either in Kyrgistan or in Tajikistan (not both), which one would you choose? And why?
Thank you for your comments and advise!
Take care, Helena

Anyone know of any tours I can take from Dushanbe? I will be there in the summer for 4 days. I would like to get our for a few days and see some nature. Day trips would be okay too. Thanks. Paul
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

Since I didn't clearly ask a question last time here goes... Yes, this guy I am meeting is defiantly going to be at the meeting place in Tajikistan. I was wondering if me, a girl, who's 17, will be safe if I travel by myself to get to Tajikistan. Also, Will I be safe there?

I just read the Lonely Planet Central Asia edition and learnt that there is a potential to drive from Khojand to Osh via Kokand(Uzbek), Andijoin(Uzbeki) and the border at Dostyk(Uzbek).
If anyone has done it, please share your knowledge and/or experience with me e.g., cost, annoyance and tips.
Thanks for your time in advance.

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.
