Kyrgyzstan

Post by Admin on 24.07.16 13:20

I went through in the opposite direction last year, Tashkent to Fergana to Osh. I had no safety concerns.

Because of Kyrgyz-Uzbek border restrictions, you may have trouble finding a driver in Osh for the whole trip, and it might be easier to arrange your journey as several hops. Coming the other way, I couldn't find a driver who was willing/able to take me all the way from Fergana through to Osh. I had to taxi to the border, walk across and get a new taxi on the Kyrgyz side.

Security is not an issue for a tourist in the Fergana. It's safe and you can visit and travel there.
Use a shared taxi from Andijan to Tashkent.

Dostyk is the primary border crossing between KG and UZ, and thousands pass through every day.

Dostyk/Dustlyk: Main border crossing on the road between Osh and Andijon. Public transport and shared taxis are available on both sides. Open from 7am to 7pm, closed for lunch 13.15 to 13.45.

Khanabad: Border crossing on the road between Jalal-Abad and Andijon. Update: May 2013, Jalalabad- Khanabat border is closed.

Uch-Kurgan: Border crossing on the road between Karakol and Namangan. Open daily from 8am to 8pm. Guards on both sides are generally friendly and relaxed, few people pass here. Still, it will take an hour to pass through. On the Kyrgyz side, you can get any transport going along the main Osh – Bishkek road to drop you off there, the border is located at the roadside. Once cleared, it’s a 10 minute, no shade walk (if you don’t have a car or bicycle) from the Kyrgyz side to the Uzbek side.

On the Uzbek side, minibuses pass by on their way to Uch-Kurgan town center for 1500 som (if you have Uzbek som, there are no money changers). Otherwise, taxis are waiting who can change money (if you ride with them) and can drive to Uch Kurgan or Namangan. A ride to Namangan costs 10$ for the car.

Izboskan/Manyet: This border crossing was discovered when all other border crossings with Kyrgyzstan were closed in September 2015. We are not sure if it is continually open to foreigners, or if this was only emergency procedure. Shared taxis run on either side of the border.

Read this if you are worried about the Ferghana valley enclaves.

Note that all train travel between Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan passes Kazakhstan. Similarly, minibuses from Bishkek to Tashkent pass through Kazakhstan.
