Central Asia/Mongolia/Siberia Timeline
frequent reader of the posts here as we are planning to cross the above in 2013. Just a quick one for you, what is the best time of year to do this?
I wanted to get away early, down through Europe, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azer and across to maybe Turk, then Uzbek, Tajikistan and the usual route up and out of either Magadan or Vlad.
Now I know it gets cold
in most of these places, then also hot
but I would rather not go to extremes of either. we can handle both as we will be in a 4x4 with 4 season bags etc.
So I was thinking of getting to the Pamirs for April or May, Mongolia for July or August then Siberia for Sept/early Oct?
Im basically looking for the longest trip possible (Im finishing work and going to Australia
) but I dont want to be stuck in Siberia at -50!
so any suggestions as to a sensible timeframe? whats the earliest time for the Pamirs as I think this area will be the crux of the trip start. I know its open year around but Im looking for a time when temps are around or over 0
also, whats the last call in Siberia? realistically.
any hints/tips appreciated
