Hi mates, we just have crossed Iran and Pakistan.
Iran: Getting a 7 days-transit visa is easier than a tourist visa, but a transit will not be extended (like written in various travel guides). It was not possible for us to transit Iran in 7 days although the roads are great. It is a 3500 km journey after all. We had a lot of hassle trying to extend our transit visa.
Pakistan: We had a 15 day transit which is just enough to ride the Karakorum Highway and cross the country. However you have to put on some serious mileage as well. This is possible. We rode 4500 km in 15 days. We did not try to extend. The country is so interesting and has some lovely people that we think trying to get a tourist visa is worth it.
For both countries and India we needed a carnet de passage.
You need cash for both countries. Euros or US$ work fine. We had 1400 US$ for the four weeks and it was more than enough. We put down 500 $ each in our visa application and no questions were asked.
If you need more details please write.
