    1. Thank you! We’re trying to escape the worst of the winter by going south but I’m sure there’ll still be some cold nights. Take care!

  2. Guys, your stories are incredible!
    I don’t know how you deal with it, I’d be terrified of being stuck in the middle of nowhere, 100km to nearest town, freezing temperatures and uncyclable roads.
    Well done!

  6. it’s so exciting to read your report after i have done exactly the same trip eight years ago. i recognize every single place and stretch you’re referring to as well as the feelings and thoughts you mention in particular moments and challenges. on my silkroad tour from cologne/germany to singapore the pamir highway was definitely the most exciting stretch of the whole trip.

    i haven’t done as sophisticated stats as yours but i remember that my shortest daily trip there was about 33 km after langar ending though at a very nice spot where i pitched my tent: the mouth of a little creek into the pamir river, afghanistan in sight only less then ten meters across the river.

    unfortunately my – german speaking – blog has been hacked and is only available as a stripped-down version in the web-archive under: https://web.archive.org/web/20161231160028/http://radtouren.herbertborn.de/koln-singapur-radfernreise-auf-den-spuren-der-seidenstrase/reiseberichte/tadschikistan/

    1. Aw that’s so cool, and glad you enjoyed reading about our version of the trip you did! It’s amazing to think that with how much must have changed in eight years in terms of technological advances and probably places like Singapore have changed a fair bit as well, but the Pamirs are still pretty much the same. We’ll make sure to check out your blog soon!
