Currently in Almaty, Kazakhstan. My visa is up at the end of the month, looking for the next stop.
My plan is Samarkand > Bukhara > Khiva. Maybe a flight to Karakol before heading to Uzbekistan.
Turkmenistan & Afghanistan are off limits. Tajikistan sounds sketchy after reading about those bikers stabbed to death on the Pamir Highway. I need a visa for Iran.
This makes me think about Pakistan & India, but summer is terribly hot. Tempted to try Kashmir anyway, idk. Caucuses or Asia perhaps, depending on flights.
Anyone here have experiences to share?
