This is now the end of the road. Only some locals are allowed to drive through the gate. Also all the tour busses have to park here.
Camping is for free and is allowed on the big parking lot. Toilets are available and were open all night.
It's an additional easy 1.3 km to walk to the trailhead. It took us around 1,5 hours for the complete hike to the laguna. The first tourist groups arrived at around 9:30 at Humantay Lake. The lake itself is completely in the sun at around 9am. But the mountain wall behind it only at around 10am.

Great location! Nice complex with a nice garden. Paid 25 bob / tent with breakfast. Kitchen and banos very clean. Wifi is very fast! The breakfast is inexistant. Avoid taken it! The staff and the boss are really friendly. There is a good atmosphere. However there is a group of Working-away making a lot of noise till 2am and playing fireballs next to the tents. Not that cool! Apart from that i surely recommend for those with tight budget!

Toyota Dushanbe (the only official dealer in Dushanbe) was of great help to us. We ordered parts 3 weeks before and they arrived in 2 weeks. Gulomjon is the after sales manager that speaks good English and was very helpful (frequent email communication to order the parts, collecting the deposit, updating is on the status while in Dushanbe, etc). Main Toyota mechanics were knowledgeable, the younger guys assisting them not so much, so take care with that. Gulomjon provided a quotation for for the parts and the labour, very nice to have that in advance. Parts were about 30% cheaper then in Europe, hourly wage was 165 Somoni. They worked for 2 full days and just charged for 10 hours. They keep most basic spare parts in stock as they are a hub for Central Asia, and otherwise they are willing to look into other channels for you. Also fixed other things, like our compressor. Happy with their service, at a fair price, so for sure a good dealer to go to. Just take care which mechanic is going to work on your car.

Took 8.5 hrs to cross. Ukraine side was easy with no queue and we cleared them in 1.5hrs. Russian side were all very very friendly but were insistent on a "present" that we did not want to give so they made us wait and wait.

Price to visit Mt.Kloto is 5000 CFA person (without guide).

Price for the Kpimé waterfall is 2000 CFA person (without guide).
Note that Kpimé waterfall is just few drops of water until August when they open the dam, in the top of the mountain. It’s 90min walk up the dam, nice view.

Still no police or checkpoint... 👮🏽‍♂️

Note 4-July18: you have to cross some salty water to access the salar (~30-40cm).
We just followed some tour cars to find the right way. Possible with a 2WD with high clearance.

An amazing spot to camp, very very quiet and amazing scenery. The road is brand new and very smooth and goes to a military base. There are a few spots adding the way that make great wildcamping places.

Overnight parking is only allowed if you register at the state park (campground house) and pay $35. They call this an emergency overnight and only allow it if the campground is full and it is already late, usually between 8pm and 9pm. They will walk around and check the parking lot and kick out everyone that didn’t register (at least that is what they did when we were there)

Generally not a big fan of paid for campsites, this worked out well.. it was a great spot right on the water.. beautiful view. Paid about $35 for the night . The sites are limited if you are looking to boondock and other campsites in the area just don’t look great...

Beautiful place and tranquil. Lots of animals to see and facilities are clean and well maintained. Didn't pay due to season and we were the only ones there. Some of the walks were blocked off due to lots of water. Need 4x4 and with good clearance.

Small, nice and clean hostel with young and very friendly owners. Double room with private bathroom 40S (including breakfast), dorm bed with breakfast 20S, without 15 S. All are just fan rooms. Negotiate a bit the prices and you’ll get 5 S discount for sure. There is a kitchen you can use with portable water. Common room with a tv and a backyard with a small pool. You can use the washing machine for free. Breakfast includes bread, butter, Marmelade, scrambled eggs or fruits, coffee and juice. WiFi is most of the time very slow but that’s a problem of the connection of the whole city (Satellite connection only). I think they should have space for (motor)bikes too. There was sometimes one of the staff in the corridor and in the backyard there should be enough space too.

Cop asked for license and declaración jurada (the one you get when entering the country). He stamped the declaración and asked for the usual 5Bob bride. I told him I had never been asked to pay for anything else than the usual tolls, and he just told me to move on.

Also known as Cerise Park. We arrived on evening of 4th July and the parking lot was packed due to a fireworks display. We enjoyed the show and stayed as everyone else left, cops showed up around 10.30pm to clear the parking lot as park closes, they left us alone.
