Kashgar to Kyrgistan via Tourugart pass

We are planning to cross into Kyrgyzstan end of May coming from Kashgar. 3 motorbikes and one truck. Heard many stories about difficulties and delays. Anyone has done that lately (2010)?

hi,
may do you'll leave from kashgar riding/driving chinese plate veichles or are you coming from a third country?
as is this the case you should to manage the paperworks through a local agency, wich it require a lot of time, say 2/3 months...
is this what do you mean for delays or is about road conditions? i also think end of may could it be a little bit cold to ride up there.
i was, sorry, we were 7 bikes on last end of august riding on the reverse way from kyr to pak. get in xinjiang for a 6 days transit with an agency from kashgar. the road on both sides of the torugart is under reconstruction. they've make it wider, but still gravel at that time. they should be able to turn it into tarmac this year. hope it for you.

Surely gravel is the one we want!!

I looked into this a few years back, Caravan Cafe in Kashgar were the people to sort the escort etc out at the time but it was too pricey for my liking

Kashgar to Kyrgis

Again, we are coming from Laos, have Chinese and Lao license plates and a group visa for Kyrgistan. My question was: has anyone done the trip going West, not East and coming from Kashgar and what are the conditions and requirements/hassle entering Kyrgis with a motorbike?! We have all the paperwork done on the Chinese side and our guide will get us to the last Chinese check point, but what will happen from there on?! Anyone out there who has done it in 2010 or knows people who did it? best

I thing Kyrg side should be very easy comparing China.
If you got your visas and passports just fill the form and get the stamps....
