Tajikistan Transportation

  • Transport within Tajikistan (and Pamirs)

    Tajikistan does not have much of a regular bus service. So travelling along is best done by hiring a car and a driver. Hitchhiking is a possibility, but only where a bit of traffic can be expected. Given the not very high amount of private owned cars (more so in the Pamirs), it needs time and patience. This, as often cars are full, and the...

  • The famous flight to Khorog – get a...

    Well, so much has been said and written about this famous flight (famous for the ones which have considered to travel to Tajikistan), that I also HAD to take it.Similar as Dean wrote, it is a bit of a hassle to get yourself on this flight. It is said that tickets are only bookable at the airport. So, with the (20 USD charged for help, plus 25 USD...

  • The famous flight to Khorog – the flight

    So we did, have been there at 6.30 a.m. and waited and waited again. Luckily, there is a small café at the national airport, so that we could get at least what Traveltajikistan was not able to provide us with (it was TOO early, how could we even dare to think that we would get breakfast THAT EARLY at this etablissement??).At a point in time (7:30...

  • How to get to Tajikistan

    I have planned to write this for Uzbekistan, but maybe it helps here as well, if you plan to combine Uzbekistan with Tajikistan.On my trip, I have met several travellers which went from all parts of Europe to Uzbekistan with Aeroflot, transfer flights in Moscow. They had to sit for hours and hours at Moscow airport, without visa for Russia, quite a...

  • Dushanbe-Khojand-Dushanbe

    If you have driven the Dushanbe-Khojand route by car or bus once, I am nearly certain you will contemplate taking the plane back. The planes of Tajikistan Airlines fly frequently between Khojand and Dushanbe, so that's not a big deal, and the fare is only about USD 50, so it's doable. Easy transit, about 35-45 minutes. Compare that to 20 by car.In...

  • Most reliable international route

    I found the Istanbul-Dushanbe flight by Turkish Airlines to be the best in terms of certainty of departing and arriving on time in Dushanbe. The flight was "only" 45 minutes late into Dushanbe. Unfortunately it is a weekly flight only. It connects very well to several flights from elsewhere in the world. The most frequent one is the daily route...

  • Travel warning - getting to and from...

    I found that information about flights to and from Tajikistan is haphazard and schedules might be changed decades ago. Do not trust schedules and home pages... The flights that seem to survive the wear and tear of history are the daily link to Moscow, flights to St. Petersburg, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Dubai and to some but not all neighboring states....

  • from Khojand to the Uzbek border

    Get a taxi to the Uzbek border from just about 1km north of the massive Lenin statue. It costs 20 somoni to the border -- just under $7US. The trip takes about 50 minutes and the border formalities are pretty straightforward.From the border to Tashkent the taxis will quote $15US but the bus will cost just $1. When you walk out of customs, walk...

  • Getting from Dushanbe to Khojand

    [Apologies -- there doesn't seem to be a Khojand listed in the database to add to my page so I've posted this here]Volga taxis are available to Khojand (formerly Leninobad). The trip takes about 10 to 10.5 hours and costs 60 somoni ($20US) for one seat. The road is rough for a good part of the way but construction on the road seems to be ongoing....

  • Bus travel

    Travel around Tajikistan is very cheap. Once Mari and I travelled for 6 hours by bus and it cost a little over a dollar. Anything that cheap is normally crowded and Tajik buses are no exception. They are however very prone to breaking down. The photo is of one of our many breakdowns. It happened in July with daily temperatures around 45 degrees....
