#Review#Kyrgyzstan : "I rented a self-drive car to go from #Bishkek to #Tajikistan (#Pamir Highway). The @Ford Ranger was a good car and in good condition. Ryan is a friendly guy who knows the country very well. I can definitly recommend Ryan. He runs a well organised professional car rental. On my way I met other self-drivers with a bit cheaper cars from ther companies: they suddenly weren't allowed to cross the boarder to Tadjikistan or had problems with their cars very often." indy-guide.com/kyrgyznomad #IndyGuide

#Review#Tajikistan : "We had such a fantastic ten days in Tajikistan with Jamal as our guide, our companion and a great driver, with his decent vehicle.
We are two (demanding) Asian women and he really made us feel very comfortable in his company, safe and that we were being well looked after. Even at times when things seemed difficult, he went out of his way to make it all possible for us. We had enormous amount of laughs and full of fond #memories to take home with.
Our most favourite spot was at #Bulunkul lake , the little town was fascinating, as where we were most welcome at Nisso homestay, they made so much effort that we were comfortable, splendid tea, dinner, cozy bed and breakfast of a 5 stars treatment, plus a yak ride into the sunset. We will definitely be back to your memorable country. Thousand kisses to Tajikistan. Thank you very much." https://indy-guide.com/en/jamal #IndyGuide
We set off on a 2-day hike to Ala-Kul Lake without really knowing if things would work out. Luckily, mostly everything went according to plan. Still, the first day ended up being one of the toughest days I’ve ever done, hiking 36km with a 1700m elevation gain. I felt a bit dizzy after reaching the top, but this was the view we were treated to.

Some places are a little hard to get to. For remote areas having your own 4x4, taking shared cars, and hitch hiking are still the most common ways to get around.
🏰 A TIP WHEN VISITING KHIVA 🚗⬇️
If you’re taking a taxi from #Bukhara to #Khiva (the cheapest way of getting there), ask your driver to make a little detour to take you to some ancient fortresses along the way.
This one is in #Tuprakkala and walking amongst these ancient ruins is an experience not to miss ✨
Just make sure to pack some snacks as this will prolong your journey from Bukhara to Khiva for probably 2 more hours, making it a 9-hour taxi ride in total. I didn’t mind the length as we took many stops along the way, but my stomach was rumbling quite badly towards the end! 😆
