hi everyone i am planning a trip "EAST" on my Honda transalp so many routes to chose from!!!!
Looking to leave jan/feb14 maybe ... turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India-- or up though Mongolia, china, and on to south east asia....
I have previously ridden around EU, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Middle east
if any one has a similar idea drop me a line
Im going. Route planning is quite same. Time match. China is bit of problem.
Was looking already options to ship the bike from Mongolia or India to bangock. Myanmar is "almost impossible" heard. Like to hear your decissions.
yes china is a bit of a problem I guess it will just have to be ship to Bangkok
or similar forget Myanmar from what have been told drop me an email as im new to this blog thing and lets make a plan....Abraham_tudor@hotmail.com
if there is anyone who knows about this part of the world and has any advice
it would be much appreciated
I'm currently planning a UK to OZ trip too and am leaving in Jan/Feb time. The way i see it so far is either India to China or Mongolia to Laos.
Flying from Delhi or Kathmandu to either Bangkok or Chiang Mai isn't to hard, either that or shipping from say Chenani to Bangkok by sea. These options seem the cheapest and easiest. The other options you have are going to Mongolia and driving through china to Laos, driving from the 'Stans' through china to Laos or driving from Nepal through China to Laos.
Personally driving through china from Nepal to Laos would be the holy grail but most difficult to organise because I've only heard it being done a few times. The easiest probably would be to skip china altogether and fly or ship around it. But id rather not if I could (its over LAND for a reason) but iam not to fussy. Let us know your thoughts on any of this, ideas or agreements. I'm Jake by the way, a trusty old R80 G/S owner ready for an Asia trip.
We are an Australian couple looking to go from Germany back to Oz overland, and are definitely interested in going across China, time frame is not a big worry for us, preferred route would be Mongolia to Laos, via Russia (we haven`t been there yet) and then on down to Australia. We travel two up on a 1200 GSA, and have been watching the Hubb for information, found one company recommended by others who have been across (Navo tours China) they seem to have a fairly good itinerary, let us know how you go.
New to all this and am in the planning stages of doing a UK to India and beyond trip leaving in Jan/Feb time too. Looking for like minded travellers, and current advise on whether Pakistan is too dangerous or if its all just hype??
