    Central Asia is the region with seasonal inland climate. Day temperature during summer period is +25 to +40 degrees. After the sunset, temperature drops to +20 degrees, and to + 15 in the mountain areas.

    It is hard to predict weather conditions in mountain regions of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Sometimes it can be very rainy and it might be snowing in Pamir. So you have to be ready for any weather conditions.

     


    ROADS CONDITION

    Most of the roads are sealed excluding mountain passes through Pamir. Due to harsh natural conditions, remoteness and lack of financing, these roads are not sealed and have never been repaired.

    MEDEO in motorcycle motorbike tour
    The Medeu, (Kazakh: Медеу; Medeu) or Medeo (Russian: Медео) is an outdoor speed skating and bandy rink. It is located in a mountain valley (Medeu Valley, or the valley of Malaya Alma-Atinka River) on the south-eastern outskirts of Almaty, Kazakhstan. Medeu sits 1,691 metres above sea level, making it the highest skating rink in the world.[1] It has 10.5 thousand square meters of ice and utilizes a sophisticated freezing and watering system to ensure the quality of the ice. The mountain valley was named in honor of Medeo, a wanderer who lived in the last century and established own aul in this picturesque. site.

    Construction of the stadium began in the fall of 1949, and the first competition took place at the stadium on 4 February 1951. Medeu switched to its current system of artificial ice in 1972 by a team of Soviet engineers.

    The Medeu Dam, built in the late 1960s, stands immediately south of the skating rink, protecting it – and the city of Almaty itself – from potentially devastating mud flows. Viewpoints on top of the dam provide great views of the stadium. The dam has 3 successive altitude levels. Special water reservoir allows holding about 6 million cubic meters of water. Stairs known to city inhabitants and tourists consisting of 842 steps leads to the dam. Contests on ascension along this unique stairs are regularly carried out.

    Medeu has seen many world records in all the speed skating distances from 1951 until the 1980s: 500 m, 1000 m, 1500 m, 3000 m, 5000 m, and the 10000 m. In 1972, the rink made a very successful transition from natural ice rink to artificial ice rink.

    The bandy team Dynamo Alma-Ata, won the Soviet Championships in 1977 and 1990 and the European Cup in 1978.

    After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the costs to uphold the arena as a top ice rink proved too expensive for the independent Republic of Kazakhstan. The last great championship event for a long time on this ice rink was held in 1988—the Men's World Speed Skating Championship—which was won by the American skater Eric Flaim.

    In the early years of the 2000s, Medeo's future status as a competition rink was uncertain. However, it was proposed as the speed skating venue both for Almaty's unsuccessful bid for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and the successful one for the 2011 Asian Winter Games. In the end, bandy was the only sport here during the Games. Speed skating was held at Alau Ice Palace in Astana. Medeo was the main arena of the Bandy World Championship 2012.

    Several years in succession (1990–2004) the ice skating rink turned into the large concert ground where the popular international music festival "Voice of Asia” ("Azia Dauysy”) was carried out in which not only Kazakhstan performers but also variety stars from all over the world take part

    THE ZENKOV'S CATHEDRAL IN ALMATY in motorcycle motorbike tour
    In the late 19th century the first bishops of the Turkistan eparchy discussed the need for a Russian Orthodox Church in Almaty. On September 26, 1903 the bishop of Turkestan and Tashkent, Paisii (Vinogradov) consecrated the foundation of the church. Construction lasted between 1904 and 1907. The belfry was erected on September 14, 1906. The cathedral survived the 1911 earthquake with minimal damage, even though it was built without any nails, which some bishops attributed to divine intervention. 

    The inner structure of the cathedral was made in the artistic workshops of Moscow and Kiev. The iconostasis was painted by N. Khludov. After the Russian Revolution the cathedral was used to house the Central State Museum of the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic. From 1930 to 1940 it was used by important public organizations. The first radio transmitters in Almaty were situated in the cathedral's belfry.
    Front View of the cathedral during winter
    Restoration work on the cathedral began in 1973 and lasted until 1976. In May 1995 control of the cathedral was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church, and after additional restoration work it was reopened for religious services in 1997.

    ANZOB TUNNEL in motorcycle motorbike tour jeep tour

    The Anzob Tunnel or Ushtur Tunnel is a 5,040 m long tunnel located 80 km northwest of Tajikistan's capital Dushanbe.

    The tunnel connects the Tajik capital to the country's second largest city, Khujand, travel to which, prior to the tunnel's construction, required travelers to cross the border into Uzbekistan in order to travel between the two cities. It is also a transit route between Dushanbe and Uzbekistan's capital Tashkent. Prior to construction of the tunnel, especially during winter, the threat of year-round avalanches led to periodic disruptions of commerce. Tunnel facilitates overcoming Hissar ridge and provides year-round road link between the northern (Sughd Province) and southern regions of Tajikistan. Earlier in the winter travel in the northern regions of Tajikistan through Anzob (height 3372 m) has been closed for 6 months. The tunnel has reduced the road between Dushanbe and Khujand by 30 km and travel time along the new route - dropped to 5 hours. The length of the tunnel more than 5 kilometers. As of May, 2014 the tunnel was still unfinished and the Iranian government and Tajik government had signed an agreement to complete the project by late March, 2015.
    Strategic Importance
    Its construction put an end to Uzbekistan's ability to halt traffic between Tajikistan's two largest cities. It marked the beginning of other major co-operative projects such as the Sangtuda-2 power plant.
    The tunnel is also said to be part of a planned road which would run from Iran through Herat in western Afghanistan and Mazar-i-Sharif and Sherkhan Bandar in northern Afghanistan to Tajikistan and from there up to China. The route has been named the new Silk Road.

     Ostoni Bibi Fotimai Zakhro is Tajik for "Holy Site of the Sleeves of Bibi Fatima".  The hot springs lies deep in the Wakhan Valley of Tajikistan's Pamir Mountains, just a stone's throw away from Yamchun village. 
    As most of the homestays in Tajiksitan would not provide you with hot bath, and so Bibi Fatima hot springs is a destination
    the one can only dream of reaching after days of travelling thru hot waterless area.  Soaking in the natural warm mineral water has been said to rejuvenate women's well-being in ways that improve female fertility. The springs themselves are just a simple concrete room built against the rock face where the hot water emerged. The hot water comes from a fine stalactite cave, length of which is unknown. Unlike another Pamir famous hot spring Garm Chashma where the water is full of minerals and very silty, the water in Bibi Fatima contains no chalk and is crystal clear.
     

     
    YUAMCHUN FORTRESS in motorcycle motorbike tour jeep tour
    In the end of the 1st millennium B.C. because of the threat of military attacks from neighbors as well as for the purpose of controlling the traffic of people and cargos from Pamir to Bactria, India, Iran and back the construction of powerful fortifications began. The first of them was Yuachmun Fortress (also known as Kafyr Kala). The fortress was constructed in the 3rd century B.C. on the slope of the rock which was favorably during its construction. If seen from above the fortress has a triangular form divided into three parts. The first is the citadel with a bastion and barracks. They were walled and reinforced by towers. Two other parts are extensive platforms for conducting military actions. Each platform is surrounded with powerful walls reinforced by 36 towers with loopholes.The fortress walls are double, made from carefully processed tiled stones delivered by builders from different remote places. The outer 2 m-thick wall was made entirely from stones. The inner wall is also from stones which are only 50-60 cm thick.The entire fortress "is connected" by means of towers with embrasures cut in chessboard order and inclined downwards under a small angle so that the warriors could cover with their fire the entire valley. Some loopholes are directed both outside, and inside of the fortress which considerably increased its defensibility. The fortress amazes with its size. This powerful military structure had an exclusive significance for the local territory.

    AK BAITAL PASS in motorcycle motorbike tour jeep tour
    Ak-Baital pass is a high mountain pass on the border of the Republic of Tajikistan (GBAO region) and Kyrgyzstan at an elevation of 4,655-meter (15,270 ft) above the sea level. The pass is a part of the Trans-Alay Range and it’s the highest road pass in the former Soviet Union.

    Pereval Akbaytal is crossed by M41 road, known informally and more commonly as the Pamir Highway. This section of the road is barely passable. Throughout the area, the land is typically rugged and dry. This road is sometimes referred to as "The Road from Hell”. Construction and maintenance levels vary substantially along the highway. The roadway is paved is some areas, but is mostly unpaved. The road is heavily damaged in places by erosion, earthquakes, landslides, and avalanches. The road was built during Soviet times, to connect parts of their imperium in this region. Since the breakdown and Central Asia’s independence, not much coherent maintanance has been done to the road, only in spots, where damage has been caused by flash floods or scree.
