Some general comments about camping

In Bishkek we stayed at the SilkRoad Lodge. This is a reasonably nice hotel (US$170 per double) and is affiliated with Celestial Mountain Tours. they would have allowed us to simply park the truck on their premises for $20 per night.

We saw a few overlanders who simply parked in a quiet street.

In the country side one could easily find places to pull over and spend the night.

We did not spend a night in the city of Osh but we did find a good place to camp there thanks to some helpful Germans/Swiss that we bumped into. It is a parking lot located at GPS N40.52059 E72.80048.
