Hi again David, Max again from Spain.
As I told you I am very keen to join your group.
Possibly on Turkey or Kyrgistan.
But my point is I'd rather be later: July or August, even September.
If you do not mind I send you a private to put me on your list.
Yours.
Max.

June is very tricky for me at the moment.

Group entering China In August September 2013

See below a German family madeline_knuth@ the hot place dot com. I was given their details by Chinatibettravel. Not much use to me but may be of use to others. Jimmy



We're planning a trip from Switzerland to Australia by car. We start in May 2013 and travel trough Turkey, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kasachstan and Mongolia. We're planning to enter China in August/September 2013.
At the moment it's difficult for us to define an exact date of entry and exit.
What are your plans? When do you need to know if we can travel together?


I also asked Mr Jun from China Tibet Travel to put our travel information on his website (please find the link below) to find other cars who want to join us.

Keep in touch.

Quote for crossing China

The whole group is being charged ten and a half K. Not bad at all. That figure will vary according to the numbers that end up going.

Duration is 35 days.

Entry date 20th June, 2013.

All the costs are included as above.

The route for several of the group is different but we will meet in Kyrgyzstan.

Myself and perhaps two others will be riding through eastern Europe and turkey before the 'stans'.

Hope that helps.
David

How many days, is it still the 35 days in China that was mentioned earlier?

What is the cost for you to put temporary licence plates on the bikes adn cars/trucks, while transiting through China?

How much are you being charged to be provided with temporary driving licences ?

Can I comment on your route please,

Have you considered Calais ----> Keive (Ukraine)----> Naryn (Kyrgyzstan)
About 4200 miles. (6800km) ?

Which Chinese Tour Company?

Hi David, have read this thread with interest as planning a trip to China myself - also for 2013 but leaving later than you (around Aug or Sept) and keen to consider the G219 highway from Kashgar to Lhatse after entering China from Kazakhstan. Already there are some others here on HU interested and just wanting to get a quote from a Chinese tour company before we ask others here to join us. Which tour company are you using?

Sounds like your plans are well developed and I hope all goes well.

Chinese Tour Co

Hi Charlemagne. Name's Max.
I'm in David's group. I left you a message on your post a couple of weeks ago = keen on same route -G219-, and same dates as you.
But I will wait David to give you a reply with the data you need. I do not want to take his credit for doing so. And he deserves it. Hope you understand.
Regards.
Max.

UPDATE:
Reply sent to Charlemagne. You should have received it by now - if not please let me know.

The group have paid a deposit so more or less written in stone.
There are eight persons - five bikes and two cars in the group.
We enter China via Kyrgyzstan on the 20th June
Transit time through China is 35 days
The route is east and then south through Chengdu into Tibet
We exit via Laos

The cost of the guide per person is approx. $1,500

If anyone wants to join they can still do so but time getting away.

Cheers
David
