Almaty-Dushanbe-(Pamir Highway )-Almaty June 2013
I know the highway is covered in depth over this forum, however, this is usually as part of a RTW/long distance overland trip. June 2013 I am intent on doing just the Pamir highway and Kyrgyzstan over 14 days.
I have experience of KZ, Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia, having Land-Rovered there from the UK in 2009 but have a desperate desire to now complete the Pamir.
Amazingly, an opportunity has just presented itself having been granted 2 weeks off next June and I am now planning how best to achieve this and as such have a couple of questions.
Plan is Fly UK-Almaty-Dushanbe, Rent 4x4, complete Pamir highway and fly Almaty-UK over 14 days.
Clearly this is the ideal plan, open to change depending on where we are able to rent the vehicle. Which brings me to my first and most important question:
Does anyone have any experience of vehicle Renting in either Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan or Kazakhstan ( Almaty ) and if so would they consider a 'one way' trip like this, from Dushanbe-Almaty plausible?
I have contacted silkroad tours as I am aware they rent vehicles, but I am keen to keep this trip independent.
Any advice or contacts would be gratefully received.
