In May 2014 my boyfriend and I will begin a trip in bike from Spain to Vietnam (and return), for a year.
It´s the first time we do this route and we would like to cross Iran and Pakistan along with other travelers. We are thinking of coming to Iran from Turkey, but another idea is traveling by Russia, Kazahistan, Uzbekistan etc. In any case, our objective is to go accompanied on this part of the trip.
If anybody is going to travel in car or bike to both countries, and he want to travel accompanied, please contact us
More information about us: We are 32 years old. We travel both in the same bike (F800GS) and we adapt without problems to travel with other people.
Hi My wife and I are planning a trip this year but won't be leaving the UK till 1st August. We would like to go to India via Iran and Pakistan if possible but it is a bit dangerous at the moment in North Pak perhaps it is okay in the south??
We are setting off late May r t w and going the same way as you,well Russia, ukrain,turkey,Georgia,down through Iran,parkistan,China,Tibet,Nepal hopefully India in 3 months, we ride 1200 GSA two up,
I am German, living in Tehran, Iran with wife and 3 kids. Lots of experience within the country. Place to host (with pool ) and contacts to local garages etc.
Besides this my wife Annette and me we plan to fly to Germany in July 2014 and return with bikes (TT600R and Ducati Monster 750 - yep, nice couple, so are we!) drive back to Tehran until August 3rd or so.
Ferry from Ancona to Igoumenitsa is booked for July 23rd.
it is a bit critical to go past the border in southeast Iran because of tribal territory. Friends who passed thru (with motorbikes, car, even as hitchhikers) have made it without any problems. But it needs to be considered a bit risky. On the Iranian side of the border you will be escorted by police anyhow. The issue is on the Pakistani side where there seems to be no rule of law.
One solution is to form groups of vehicles using traveller's forums in advance. In summer it's not high season so plan some time to find company.
European embassies do not give visa support for the Pakistani Embassy in Tehran, so you have to have the visas issued before.
Skipping Pakistan by flying to Dubai/Oman and then to India is an option. But so far I have no positive information regarding shipment of vehicles. It is definitively possible, but rather difficult to organize as foreigner...
Feel free to ask.
Iran is definitively worth a trip!!
And please remember for your planning:
There is Ramadan, the month of fasting in muslim countries!
In 2014 its from June 28th to Jul 27th with 3 days of party (Jul 28th-30th) afterwards.
During this month, especially in Iran, in rural areas of Turkey or in other islamic countries, you will hardly find restaurants during daytime serving food or drinks - very hard in these summer months.
