Hi , I'm Marco from Italy and I'm very .happy of this RR and these beautiful Photos,
I have been in Pamir region in 2010 and I can understand a little of your writing.
The thing that I would like to tell you is : the People are Magic.
I remeber that I felt safe like between mother's arms ..... It was great to meet those people.
Don't know why......
but It was like a dream ...a real fantastic dream....

here our 2010 travel:

It's true. Tajiks are the poorest, but the most hospitable Central Asia people.

Pamir

30 May Gulcha-Toktogul. 340km
In the morning went to look for metal welding service. The metal bike rack has broken from the Pamir roads. Found one in a local car repairs station. They would not agree to do anything, even for money. Laziness is the bane of the Kazakhs and Kyrgyz. Strange local mentality. For some reason, I felt sure that if they agreed they would finish it and do it all the right way. So it happened. And really – they aced it and refused to take any money. The only thing they wanted was to get in the picture.





We took off onwards. Road quality is excellent all the way from Gulchi to Bishkek. Road is broad and has all relevant markings, even in the high altitude mountain pass sections Ala-bel and To-Ashu.

The Ferghana Valley.Only fields around.


Uzgen Town between Osh and Jalalabad. Local waiter shows Adri how to eat Samsa – turn it topsy-turvy, cut off the bottom. Each meat from inside and chase it with the cut off bottom.


Uzgen Bazaar


Locals.


Jalalabad Gates


Many odd facilities nearby Tash-Kumyr.




How River Naryn looks like after numerous Toktogul Water Power Plant cascades. All quietness! And that is not the Naryn that boils in the Naryn Region
[IMG][/IMG]



local 4WD Enduro


Toktogul Water Pool.





Kyrgyzstan)) – even marijuana grows in the water.


The lake is warm and friendly - the best shower for rider!)


Kyrgyz mountains are not so high, but attractive in their own ways.


I planned to each Bishkek that day, but during swimming we made some thinking to chose to stay in the village.

31 May Toktogul-Bishkek . 295km
It was Adri’s second day of illegal presence in Kyrgyzstan. His visa expired the same day we entered the Republic. So we had things to keep us busy in Bishkek.
Toktogul-Bishkek road is luxury! Broad and even, and ever changing variety of beautiful sites.

There was snow on the Alabel Pass and it was cold. Height – 3,184 m






Met a UK couple Jaco & Gemma on the road. They were driving to Pamir from Issyk – Kul. He had Honda Transalp , she had Suzuki DRZ400.


To-Ashu Pass Ascend. 3,586 meters. Last pass on our route.






Soon we made it to Bishkek.
Got the visa in two hours, filled our stomachs in and bought gas for bikes. What else does a biker need to proceed? Looks like all. And the last section – 200 km to Almaty.

Bishkek-Almaty Road. Piece of rainbow as a reward for secure homecoming


This trip was two years ago. I did all tasks we spotted, except for Ruby, which I can do later and that is just a Gag after all. Route was a success. Stars were smiling on us!!!
Upon return, I saw Pamir in my dreams, in all various fantastic forms, for almost one month. It was probably my consciousness that was only beginning to realize and process what happened on that trip. We keep in close touch with Adri. He got back home and Now he has a plan – he wants to bring his Daughter and take the Pamir route again.
This year I'll be attending Pamir twice. I plan to organize humanitarian aid for children in Murghab. Toys, albums for drawing, books, clothes. I hope this event will grow every year. If you have the desire, their own ideas that would take part in helping please contact me. Your name will be included in the list of participants humanitarian aid for Pamir's children. These lists will be posted in the guest house, the school library and city hall of the Murgab kishlak.

Some other photos of the Pamir I'll post here as well.

Thank you very much!
