Pamir Highway Part III: Ak-Baital, Kyzyl Art and the Land of Marmots

Published on 05.06.2024, 12:54 in Osh, Kyrgyzstan

This report’s podcast is only available in german:  Pamir-Highway Teil III: Ak-Baital, Kyzyl-Art und das Land der Murmeltiere.

As we set off from Murghab for the third and final act of the Pamir spectacle, the highest pass is still ahead of us: The 4655 m high Ak-Baital Pass. We adapt to the weather, trying to avoid the cold headwind and potential snowstorms as much as possible. For the nights, we seek shelter in the lonely house of a small Kyrgyz family or with the Tajik border guards. And although we could have been more unlucky, we do not always manage to agree on all the decisions to be made without conflict. When we finally reach the Kyrgyz border on the Kyzyl-Art Pass, which is occupied by an army of marmots, the worst is over and we have three great days ahead of us: Over 235 km we descend over 3000 m!

We always appreciate your critisism, praise and other suggestions or hints and invite you to send us them via!

We are going to get on our bicycles once again and further collect kilometers :-)

See you again soon!
