It is getting toward that time of year again when planning for a trip seems to become infectious. I am thinking of arriving in Dushanbe and cycling the northern route (M41 to A372) and cross into Kyrgyzstan then on to Sary Tash and into China/Tibet.
Has anyone cycled this route through Tajikistan? Is the border open to foreigners in this area? It appears to be fairly desolate as compared to the more popular southern route (M41) that passes by the Wahan Valley.
Several years ago I had cycled from Kyrgyzstan to Tajikistan, visiting the Wahan Valley and making a loop back into Kyrgyzstan using the same route.
Any info would be great.
