Central Asia 2004: Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan


Return to my mountaineering-trekking-travel webpage



Overall itinerary:


My trip to Central Asia in 2004 included three treks:

1) Aksu (in Kyrgyzstan),

2) Kichi-Alay (in Kyrgyzstan),

3) Fann mountains (in Tajikistan).

During this trip, I also visited several towns: Tashkent, Khudjend, Osh, Dushanbe, Penjikent, and Samarkand. Between the last two treks, I briefly went to Peak Lenin base camp. For this trip, I used the services of Asia Travel (a company based in Tashkent). They did an outstanding job despite many politically sensitive border crossings, lot of bureaucracy, terrible roads, and scarce gasoline.
