We organizes trips   to  the  Pamir and Tian-Shan mountains,  the most beautiful and remote spots  of our planet.      The  Pamir  mountains are  called “Roof of the World” by  travelers from all over the world. These majestic mountains really touch the sky, the highest point is  the peak  Kongur (7719 meters)  in the east  Pamir mountains. So when you look at the mountains at  their foot,  it seems  that the Pamir mountains are   real Roof of the World.. And when you look from the top of the  mountains,   you will find out that  it  is the node that diverges in   different directions to  the world's highest mountain ranges as  the Karakoram and Himalayas  in the south, the Hindu Kush in the west , and Tian Shan in the north-east.

 We also organize tours to the regions of Kyrgyzstan and Afganistan.

       Kyrgyzstan  is  a country with its  fabulous, fascinating and alluring natural beauty. And  the country  welcomes warmly   every traveler, who comes  to this wonderful land   and shares   its  beauty  according to the hospitality of the Central Asians. It is quite impossible to tell   everything  about Kyrgyzstan immediately, because it is not practically feasible, as the nature is so  diverse and  tourist potential is so huge.  You should definitely visit two cities Bishkek and Osh in Kyrgyzstan.

We were the first clients Kuba took to the Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan in July 2018. We had a great time! After driving through Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, we spent three nights in the Wakhan, visiting Sultan Ishkashim, Khandud and Kala-i-Panja. Kala-i-Panja has an interesting ruined fort, and Sultan Ishkashim’s bazaar is worth checking out. There is a very small bazaar in Khandud too. We stayed in the Marco Polo guesthouse in Sultan Ishkashim (good food) and Shah Ismail’s guesthouse in Kala-i-Panja (nice rooms).

While it is expensive, and there are security concerns, we enjoyed our time in the Wakhan. The views of the mountains are quite different on the other side of the valley. Sultan Ishkashim is strikingly different in culture from the Tajik side, with women wearing blue burqas in the streets and men wearing kurtas. A few kilometres up the valley, the culture changes again and Wakhi women wear colourful clothing and some do not wear headscarves.

Kuba is a careful and safe driver. He takes great care and pride in keeping his vehicle clean and tidy for guests. This is something of a miracle in the Wakhan, where the “road” is incredibly dusty! His Mitsubishi Montero was reliable and comfortable. There are not many cars in the Wakhan corridor, so we enjoyed being able to travel with a driver we trusted and in a car we were familiar with.

One of the advantages of using Kuba’s services is that he speaks a lot of languages. Obviously he speaks Russian and Kyrgyz, but he also speaks good Wakhi which is very useful since most of the people in the Wakhan outside of Sultan Ishkashim speak Wakhi, as do the Tajik border guards. He also speaks some Tajik, which is similar to the Dari language spoken in Sultan Ishkashim.

Kuba says that his English is not very good, but actually it is completely fine for 95% of situations you need to talk about! It is good enough for him to tell jokes and explain things about the sights you see on the road. For really complex matters, he has Google Translate on his phone. He can arrange English-speaking guides if you want, but we did not have one.

Kuba has a number of contacts in Afghanistan, including local guides and guesthouse operators. However, communications are unreliable on the Afghan side, and the limited number of hiking guides can be out of cellphone reception for weeks at a time, so be prepared to wait. Similarly, although Kuba is usually quite fast to respond on WhatsApp and email, he does not have a secretary. Parts of the Pamir Highway do not have cell phone reception, and during the tourist season he is driving most days, so you may need to be patient while he answers the many messages he receives.

We really enjoyed our 16 days in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan with Kuba and Nicky. Kuba was very organised, he arranged great accomodation and was always happy to stop for us to take photos. The car was reliable and comfortable and we felt very safe with Kuba’s driving. Would definitely recommend!

I came across Indy Guide and all of the guides and their different tours. I finally made my choice to contact Kuba (guide) and we organized a wonderful 15 day Jeep - tour starting in Dushanbe, Tajikistan and ending in Osh1, Kyrgyzstan.

He fetched me at my hotel in Dushanbe and off we were on this adventure. Kuba was friendly, helpful, patient and disciplined throughout the whole tour.

His knowledge about all the different landscapes, villages, people, culture and history is exceptional.

Kuba was always willing to stop whenever I wanted to take photos, videos and get some footage. He also always made sure that I am satisfied and happy with how things are going.

I really enjoyed the tour, never had a dull moment or bad experience whatsoever! Therefor I recommend you to use Kuba if you are looking for one of the best experiences of your life.

ubanych met me on the Tajikistan border and after 2 weeks we ended up in Bishkek.

It was a most interesting trip which took me to many interesting and, sometimes, remote places and gave me an infinite opportunity to meet local people and to photograph.

Kuba was a most pleasant and knowledgeable guide and we had a most relaxed trip together. He was always ready to stop for a photograph even when it was 45deg. outside.

His interest and involvement in whatever we were doing was unexpected and added a lot to this trip. His local awareness and preparation as well as his flexibility were very much appreciated.

Kyrgystan and the Pamir are the most amazing locations and to visit them with a local guide just adds to their value.The type of experience is seemingly endless and often so unexpected.

I cannot thank Kuba enough for his outstanding efforts to ensure the richness of my trip and the friendship which developed over this time.

cheers, Rob

Kubanych was a great guide and communicated very well with me prior to arrival. He checked up on me constantly after we departed to ensure I didn't need anything. Highly recommended! No issues whatsoever.

It was a great tour !

Kubanych and his interpreter have been polite, funny and well organized companions, who have been very flexibel, when I wanted to change routes, etc.

They allways kept their word and have been very reliable. Their knowledge about Kyrgyzstan is excellent, as well as their SUV-car was. We hadn t any breakdowns and K. is an excellent, save driver.

I can fully recommend him for organising and executing a tour through Kyrgyzstan.

Some minor negative aspects are not important to mention.
