‘A Pass too Far: Travels in Central Asia’ by Lawrence Bransby


It took Lawrence Bransby and his son, Gareth, three journeys into Central Asia before they were able to ride the legendary Bartang Pass. But it’s another pass that becomes the focus of this story – Matts Pass in southern Tajikistan, and a motorcycle abandoned deep in the Pamir Mountains after father and son push the limits of their bodies and bikes just one step too far. These two have travelled on motorcycles across four continents over the years – Africa, Asia, Russia and Europe – and shared many adventures together. But this trip turned out to be somewhat different. Never before – across Africa, into the Russian taigia or the Western Sahara – have they had to abandon a bike and walk out… “A Pass too Far” is the story of their second and third journeys into Central Asia.
