Yes indeed only us. But the traffic is still bad. And trust me, you’ll be tracked every metre of the journey but won’t need an escort until Zahedan.

@chris

Did you have an LOI for Pakistan?
Have you told the Pakistani embassy your travel plan and that you are traveling overland?

kind regards
Lukas

LOI. Yes only use Karakoram Bikers. They are brilliant. We wasted money paying a few con men before we found them. I got a Pak visa for multi entry & that was enough. In fact the visa ran out while is was there but they didn’t care.

We had our visa extended in Islamabad. Was a funny experience.
I expected difficult questions, but the man from the visa office started asking about why our national ice hockey team is so good. I didn't know what to say at all haha.
But this was 2011.

Hi, I am planning a London to Singapore trip and I need some advice about negotiating my way from Kyrgyzstan to India. Should i pick a different route, or is it doable through China?

Hi guys,

So I ended up traveling from Slovenia via Turkey, Georgia and Armenia to Iran.
It was an amazing trip. (yes CDP is necesery for Iran).

In fact, trip was so good that I decided to leave the car in Iran for the time being. In October I am going down again for a short ride and in November I plan to pick it up and drive it to India.

Happy to help you guys with latest tips about Iran, Georgia and Armenia.

Regards,

China supposed to be difficult and expensive with your own vehicle. - maybe somebody that did it can help you out here.

I would suggest the Route via "Silk Road" - Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Pakistan.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
