Walking across Asian borders: from South Korea to Yemen

Walk across Asian countries! We give you the length in letters of each country name. No country is visited more than once. Continental countries only: all except 4
Country names from Countries of the World quiz
If you're allowed more than one choice (ie you could go to another country of same length and still be able to touch all countries just once) that answer will work, too

So, what's the chance of being able to walk out of Country Number 1? North Korean transit visas, anyone?

Love this quiz but you got some 'Stan countries mixed up. I typed in Uzbekistan and got credit for Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan,

Thanks for you comment. I tried explaining this in the notes but it's probably not very clear. You're allowed to type-in Uzbekistan instead of Tajikistan-Kyrgyzstan-Kazakhstan because in all 3 cases: - the number of letters is the same (10) - you could go to Uzbekistan instead, and still have a chance of finishing the 'walk' without having to repeat borders Actually I guess I should have worked out a path that minimizes ambiguity, so I'll probably change it so that from Afghanistan it goes to Uzbekistan! Thanks again

It allowed my Georgia for Armenia, but not vice versa. Most annoying as both are interchangeable answers and stuff like this you've got the next answer in your head before you finish the last one and so type g-e-o-r-g-i-a-a-r-m-e-n-i-a in one go and then wonder why it hasn't gone yellow.

it's because once Armenia appears as an answer, the following answer cannot be Armenia again!
