Funny to see the kids with their sheep herds swimming in the river when 20 feet from there huge crocs were resting on the shore...
Great report, it brings back nice memories... good luck with the rest of the adventure
Checked out your blog and see you hail from Montréal. A French Canadian in Kazakstan with a KTM sounds like a fun combination. The Pamir highway is just south of you. You must be a canyon afficianado as well.
Anyway, glad to be of service. Reading ride reports in between rides brings back fond memories for me as well.
I'll have to take that boat ride some day. It was a beautiful canyon.
