Hi, Anybody interested in accompanying an old GS Adventure rider from the UK to Darwin and beyond? Leaving the UK anytime after mid-September 2009.
Route: London to Istanbul with some sightseeing on the way.
Turkey: Istanbul, Gallipoli, the West coast, Antalya, Ankara, Cappadocia, the Black sea coast, Lake Van then cross into Iran on the Van - Khoy road - can previous travelers help with information on whether this is a good point to cross from Turkey into Iran or is there a better place to cross?
Iran: Lake Orumiye, Tabriz, the Caspian sea coast, Tehran, Ali Sadr Caves, Hamadan, Shiraz, Persepolis, Yazd, Kerman, Bam. Crossing into Pakistan at Taftan.
Pakistan: Quetta, Karachi (Seaview Beach), Lahore (Badshahi Masjid mosque). Crossing into India, Amritsar.
India: (being researched)
Nepal: Kathmandu, Mt. Everest. Airfreight the bikes to Vietnam, Laos or Thailand.
Ride to Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia and ship the bikes to Darwin.
