I am a UK citizen living in Almaty. I am enquiring a bout a trip in Summer 2017. I would like to go from Dushanbe to Khorog and do a 5-day hike (up to 5,000 metres but not a technical climb). Then I want to go overland to Osh via Penjakent, Istaravshan and Khujand.
I would like to hire a driver with a car to take me from Osh to Bishkek and then I will make my own way to Karakol. I would like to do the following treks;
- Several days around Karakol
- Trek to base camp of Khan Tengri and helicopter ride back
I am not expecting one guide, but different ones along the route. I speak reasonable Russian and some Tajik. I will be alone and looking for good value for money.
