|On horse tracks through the Tian Shan and a finale in the Pamirs
tour started September 2012, submitted 16 April 2013
Central Asia attracted with its gigantic mountains and secluded paths that I wanted to experience as much as possible. With my "Yak", which I bought six years ago at a bazaar in Mongolia, I spent six weeks in the Tian Shan in the Pamirs of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Rather unplanned I chosed a few times connecting paths that turned out to be animal and equestrian trails. But finally these sections were the most impressive of the entire trip... A continuation of the journey through the Pamirs was not possible because previous fights in Khorog resulted in the temporary closure of the Gorno-Badakhshan region. Merely a detour towards Kalaikhum I was able to try.
|The Stan Diet: getting thin in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan
tour started August 2009, submitted 7 December 2009
A six week ride mostly around the Tajik Pamir. Fantastic high altitude scenery, wonderful people and unspeakable food. Highlight was the rarely visited Bartang Valley.
|Dushanbe to Delhi, going lightweight
tour started July 2008, submitted 20 August 2008
In the middle of the day I took refuge in the grove at the edge of the rice field. A couple of Pakistanis stopped their political debate, turned over to me and asked:
``What is the reason for your trip to Pakistan?''
``A mistake'', I replied.

In March of 2006 we set out to cycle from the UK to Tibet. We didn't quite make it but had a great adventure cycling across Europe in one of the wettest winters on record and then through the wilds of Central Asia. The site includes lots of images from Tajikistan one of the really countries for cycling.
