      Gemstones in Tajikistan

      Tajikistan Mar 12, 2016 at 1:06 AM

      Hi every one. I'm new here. I have a question about gemstones in Tajikistan.
      I want to buy ruby and other gems but I can't travel myself, so I wanna send my cousin to do that for me. But he has no information about gems.
      So here is my question:
      Where can he buy true gems from an honest seller???

    • Import your own car

      Tajikistan May 16, 2015 at 2:20 AM


      I have heard a rumour that you are not allowed to import a car over 5 years old into Tajikistan. Can anybody confirm this as we are planning a trip to sell our car in Dushanbe after an overland trip.

      Any other info related to importing a car into Tadjikistan is more then welcome!

      Finding a great driver for the Pamir Highway

      Dushanbe 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!

      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

      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.

      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.
