Panjakent is a city in Tajikistan, located on the road from Ayni to Samarkand.

Hitchhiking out

West towards Samarkand (UZ) (A377)

N.B. that since 2011 border controls to Samarkand are only for locals.

There is a border control point located 10 km away from town. Take a minibus there from the market and hitch from the border. Traffic is low.

The Border crossing between Panjakent and Samarkand has the most friendly staff among the Tajik-Uzbek border checkpoints.
