KKH or Krgz - Laos fall 2012
I know there have been a few threads roaming around but between work craziness & trying to get our house in rentable shape so we can fly the coop, well I figured I'd start my own thread. My husband and I are leaving DC in May (hopefully) and would like to meander our way east. The original plan was Iran which, like many of you have said, is looking less likely. So plan B is Stans & China but we are interested in either doing the KKH to Pak then India but the prospect of traversing more of China & Tibet sounds totally wild. We are 2 up, reasonably fit, and fairly used to roughing it, but i will be honest, 17k ft altitude intimidates me a bit. i suppose we could bring some viagra a la top gear...I wont pretend this will even equate to the funky outskirts of Morocco which is about as out there as we have gotten
So if anyone is putting together a Sept or Oct group & has room please let me know. i did get wuming's info (thank you) & I'd love to get this all worked out soon as i fear we are waaay behind in sorting our paperwork.
Also someone else asked if it was advisable to do the high pass in kyrgz in late october, i am curious if its too cold to go that late? our last ride was too many miles too fast and I am hoping for a better pace this time.
Thanks for any & all replies! this forum is great
