Track was easy at start but every mile was more difficult...
We crossed the last highest pass and we have seen some lakes...
Of course no touris, no cars, no people at all...
Ahhhh, ...fantastic . Hey Sambor1965, put me down for tour IV, "Looking for Marco Polo" at around 2012
Stunning! I'm sure many of dreaming of riding landscapes like this.
There were a lot of small streams with slippery stones...
But finally we reached Pamir river and tajik-afghan border again...
and first village!
This soldier has stopped us and told that we will be arrested because we crossed the border area without any permit. And other permit is needed for Zorkul lake because it is national park. He forced us to drive back but we fefused: we had no fuel to do that... It took 1 hr to persuade him let us go
No bribe, just words and a good story
That's all for today. Have to sleep!
Up until now i didn't know landscapes like this existed!!! Where are these photos in our history and geography books that speak of these countries????
Thankyou !!, the AUS Trelleborg & Mitas importer has 6 front Army specials in stock, I might have to buy a couple to try !!.
What are they like on tar roads ??
Morghab in the east or west? East I take it.....

Great pictures and stories all around...nothing about soldiers/fighting.
What a great story!
Smooth roads and fair skies my friends!
Once again awesome trip.
in-fucking-credible. Thank you so much for this RR. Giving me the urge to travel...
Man! This is an amazing RR!!! We are envious of your trip, be safe and keep telling the story!
It will happen. Thanks for sharing.
fucking awesome ride report, stunning pictures from an area I have never imagined of riding would be even possible.
While reading and looking at the stunning pictures I was wondering, (belive it or not but it's true) so I was wondering if you have stopped somewhere at the Mc Donalds for a Burger and Fries :dg and I was thinking to ask you that question, just to tickle you a bit by looking at that remote and deserted area.
But then suddenly, it is really true, it was afterwards that I came across that picture:
so tell me why was there no picture from you guys stopping by at the Mc Donalds
I have nothing against McDonalds. But I prefer countries without Mc location.
Study this link:
There is no Mc in Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Looking at his T-shirt I see it is from Moscow. I don't think if he even knows what McDonalds mean...
Average salary in Tajikistan is about 60 USD monthly. It would be interesting to compare Big Mac Index...
Burgernomics is based on the theory of purchasing-power parity, the notion that a dollar should buy the same amount in all countries. Thus in the long run, the exchange rate between two countries should move towards the rate that equalises the prices of an identical basket of goods and services in each country. Our "basket" is a McDonald's Big Mac, which is produced in about 120 countries. The Big Mac PPP is the exchange rate that would mean hamburgers cost the same in America as abroad. Comparing actual exchange rates with PPPs indicates whether a currency is under- or overvalued.
Ok, This pictures should be later but I have to put something in front of the thread to keep you here...
When you post we're here
