Travel in Tajikistan/Pamirs
I was wondering if anyone has any current info about obtaining the GBAO permit for Tajikistan.
I am in the early stages of planning an overland trip from Australia to Europe. Part of the trip is to enter Kyryzstan from China via the Irkeshtam Pass and then cross into Tajikistan and on to Dushanbe via the Pamir Highway. To do this I need the GBAO permit.
Is it possible to get the GBAO permit anywhere other than Dushanbe or Bishkek? I plan to enter China from Pakistan via the Karakoram Highway and have read that the GBAO permit can be issued at the Tajik Embassy in Islamabad. Can anyone confirm this?
Any other advice/suggestions/recommendations greatly appreciated.
