To China..

Hi, Heading south and east from the UK - leaving August 2015. Hoping to be in China Dec 2015/Jan 2015.

UK - Europe - Turkey - Russia - Stans - Mongolia - China .....

The last bit is a bit up in the air as we need to find someone else to go with through China to share costs! We are willing to be flexible with our route through China if necessary but at the moment probably either ship out of China or Laos.

4 of us going in a converted Landrover ambulance.

Not going to make any solid plans till much closer to the time but now also looking at the Iran route rather than Russia route.

Hoping that relations between Iran and UK improve and they remove the requirement for UK citizens to need a guide, otherwise would be looking to share the cost of a guide with someone else (Probably in July).

China 2015

We are a couple with an Expedition truck planning to cross china overland from Mongolia to Laos April- May 2015. We are currently in Lake Baikal, Russia planning to go to Ulaan Bataar, Mongolia park our truck for the winter and return next year to resume our traveling. We would like to share the costs of the guide in China with other travels who intend to take the same route around the same time. The difference in cost is pretty significant if we do it together. Anybody?

jobinard, it looks like our time frame and routes could be similar

Hi Benmac

I have added your plans.

I am planing on doing the KKH September / October so if you do decide on that route it could work out. How close till the time are you going to make your decision? I was planing on starting to speak with travel agents early 2015

Hi Kim,
I'm just trying to get all my ducks in a row at the moment.
It looks like I will have my business sold by the end of October, my renovations on my house should be done by November so I can rent it out, so I should be able to commit by December. At this stage I would say I am 95% definite. Can't wait, I'm getting excited just thinking about it!
Ben.

Hi Sinky, yeah be keen to share a guide, that's possibly 4 of us for the kkh.
I'm not sure at this stage what dates for Burma. I hope to take my time and travel slowly but with a maximum 3 month visa in India maybe looking at Burma as early as January...unless I can do a couple of months in Nepal and Sri Lanka first.. still got a bit of research to do.. When are you looking at entering Burma?
