I'm also plannig a trip from the Netherlands (amsterdam) tot Thailand (bangkok) and wanting to drive the KKH from China into Pakistan. Entering China late august/begin september.
Wondering if we possibly could drive together in China. Do you have already more information about possibilities about guiding in China and costs?
My wife and I are travellling on a 1200GS and need to get from Mongolia through China into Vietnam. All I read is how difficult China is to pass through. If you have any ideas to make this easier please let me know. What visa have you got for this. I have emailed Chinese embassy in London for help! The cost do seem to be high for single bikes so if we need to meet up with like minded travelers then that is what we will do. Hope to get to China around September 2014.
I have a quotation from Newland Travel International for driving through china (KKH) in 4 days:
Day 1: Turgart - Kashgar
Day 2: Kashgar
Day 3: Kashgar - Tashkurgan
Day 4: Tashkurgan - Pakistan ( Khonjirap pass )
It's based on one bike and one person quite expensive (around 2000 euro) but can be much cheaper if we can drive together as a group because several cost components are the same for one person or a (large) group. A quick calculation shows that the price per person will be around:
2000 euros for one person
1400 euros for two persons
1200 euros for three persons
1100 euros for four persons
This quotation includes the whole package (hotel, insurance, visas, guidance, etc.)
Offcourse we can try to negotiate about a better price.
So, I'm looking for fellow travelers who want share the experience driving through China. Because of the weather I want to go there by end august/begin september.
Please let me now if you are interested in joining.
That looks similar to what I have been quoted,
though my more inexpensive quote (below) does
not include accommodation, meals, fuel, etc.
What I received was:
1 person - $2,350 USD
2 person - $1,555 USD
3 person - $1,290 USD
4 person - $1,158 USD
With respect to the weather, it seems to be better
to enter China a little later, to avoid the rainy season
on the wind/weather side of the Himalayas - and also
to avoid potential delays due to road washouts.
What route are you thinking about after the KKH ?
Have you been watching the security situation in Pakistan ?
It seems pretty dodgy right now - though I think that
the northern crossing (KKH -> Abbottabad -> Lahore)
looks like 3-4 days, so not too much time in that area.
Re China, we are travelling across the Torugart Pass into China leaving Naryn 20th August for Kashgar.
We will then take 28days to travel across China (avoiding the BIG cities as we have lived previously in China) to Laos. We have appointed a Chinese agent/guide and currently finalising the itinerary.
We have a seat in the 4x4 for a guide.
if anyone interested in sharing all or a part of this journey, let me know.
We have no set route but coming in from Mongolia and need to get to Vietnam.
Trying to get an invitation letter currently so I can get visa. Sally and I will be leaving UK late June but expect to be at chinese border some time in September 2014.
I'm planning to cross China by KKH too at the same time as you do. Approx. dates of entering China is late September - early October. Starting from Moscow at the end of August.
My route continues through the same countries. I'm heading to Indonesia.
Bike - Africa Twin, 1 rider.
It would be cool to join a group. Looking forward for a message from you.
