23th of August 2017 (2 Zul Hijjah, 1438. Yes, the majority of the population in Kyrgyzstan is Muslim), 20°C, clear sky and no wind. Arrived in Kyrgyzstan capital city at 4am, after a four hours flight from Dubai.
After some research, mainly based on other travelers opinions and on this great websites: Le Routard, annees-de-pelerinage, againstthecompass and beyondbabeesh; my loose plan to backpack in the amazing mountains of Kyrgyzstan during one month is as follows:
21th of August 2017 (29 Mordad 1396), 39°C, clear sky and high humidity. Left Qeshm island heading to Bandar Abbas airport at 12am.
18th of August 2017 (27 Mordad 1396), 45°C, clear sky and high humidity (just like a Sauna). Arrived in Bandar Abbas very early in the morning, thus took a nap at the bus terminal before contacting my host, Iman, a religious bank clerk in his thirties.

13th of August 2017 (22 Mordad 1396), 40°C, clear sky and no wind. Arrived at Shiraz, after another long bus ride (12h), around 5 am.
