We made a round trip to Tyan-Shan (Terskey Ala Too region), Pamir (Badahshan region) and neighboring districts, covering five countries in middle Asia and totalling 11000 km, mainly on primitive roads. The valuable part (6000 km) through Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistant and Uzbekistan took two weeks. Click here for POIs, maps, observations etc. Click here to view a photo calendar "Middle Asia".
