      Finding a great driver for the Pamir Highway

      by beckyoctober Online Now Mar 18, 2015 at 5:11 AM

      Hello all!

      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!

      Becky smiley

      What would you chose?

      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

    • Dushanbe to Bishkek?

      by pchun88 Online Now 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

    • Is there hot water?

      by rswearingen Online Now Dec 18, 2011 at 5:06 PM


      I am considering a job in Dushanbe and want to know more about basic living conditions there. I read somewhere there is generally no hot water in the city pipes, is that true? Is it true that the city water can at times be very dirty and that there are highly inconveniencing power outages? Thanks in advance for general information on this topic.
