Advice and fellow travellers wanted for motorcycle tour
Through the G314 Hwy from
Kashgar- Ali Abad - Skardu - Khaplu - diskit - Leh - Pangong Tso
3 Countries(China,Pakistan,India) in total
Time: summer 2013...
I first came up with the idea when I saw the splendid trip along G314(Karakoram Highway). No doubt it will be perfect if experienced on your own motorcycle. To complete the hwy trip, I need to go to Pakistan and then surprisingly I'm no long so far from Pangong Tso which has always been a place I dream to go.
The biggest challenge I think, is to get across both the Pakistan and the India occupied Kashmir. I would appreciate any information on the following questions or anything related to the trip.
1. Is it possible to get to India from Pakistan riding through the border of Kashmir? Are there any open border crossings? I suppose there will be some inspection stations around the border. But they do allow tourists to get through it don't they?
2. The road condition shall be no problem during July to August and motorcycle will be allowed to travel on the road, right?
3. And I don't suppose anyone could guarantee my safety since the security situation there is always Ina turbulence. So the best way to check whether the security is good enough to set off is to check local news?
Thanks for any help!
And I would appreciate it if anyone would like to join me or allow me to join you
