Question: Transfer Samarkand - Dushanbe

Hi there,

Now that the Penjikent border crossing is open, I'm planning on travelling from Samarkand to Dushanbe in late July 2018. Does anyone know of any public transport or shared taxis bewteen these places?

Dear Craig, 

Please be informed, that the border points were open only 15 days ago , and the transport regulation between countries is at the moment not clear. But I'm shure, that  the empty Transport Service niche will be presented with needed offers very soon.

as alternative  you can use the taxi Service from Samarkand to the border Zhar tepo ( Panjakent) and from the tajik border take a taxi to Panjakent Bus station and take marshrutka to Dushanbe. 

Have a nice Easter!

Hi Craig !

How are you doing? Yeah when you cross the Panjikent border pass, you  can find local taxi drivers ( private taxi drivers). In Samarkand unfortunately there is not direct transports to Dushanbe. One otional varian is Smarkand- Dushanbe air plane transfer.  

Best regards, Inom
