Crossing China from Kirgizstan to Pakistan in August/September 2016

Hello to everyone,

I'm a German and I'll travel from Germany to Thailand by motorcicle.
I'm planning to cross China end of August beginning September 2016.

Currently it is only possible to cross China with Guide.

The costs for the Guide will be depend from the size of the group. I will create a group of 5 - 8 persons.
Entrance from Kirgizstan Torugart Pass or Irkishtam and exit on Tashkorgan -
Khunjerab Pass
Approximately 5 days time to ride across China.

I found following websides or contacts:
Navo tours


Everyone who is interested can write to my e-mail: j.lackhove@online.de

If there is already a group at this time, I would also like to join this.

update 2016/03/03: we fix the crossing now on pass Irkishtam

I am possibly interested but confused... why 10 days to travel from Kyrgyzstan to Pakistan, it's like 1000 km across China I think... ?

Hi again… I’ve been riding north through East Africa for four months, now in Ethiopia and awaiting visas to proceed through Sudan and Egypt.

From Egypt, I’m working on shipping my DR650 to Europe and proceeding to Tajikistan > Kyrgyzstan > China > Pakistan > India > Myanmar > Thailand.

My issue is timeframe. It’s hard to say when I can make it to Kyrgyzstan given inevitable delays of overland moto travel. For instance, my visa for Sudan should have been ready last week here in Addis Ababa but I am still waiting. Shipping out of Egypt is not likely to be quick and simple.

Upshot – I aim to join one of the three (?) groups riding Kyrgyzstan > China > Pakistan in either mid-June, early August and mid-August. Should have a better handle on timeframes by early April and will be in a position to sign on officially with a group then.

In the meantime, please feel free to PM me details or other info, and I’ll keep and eye on this and other Kyrgyzstan > China > Pakistan threads.

For what it’s worth, I’ve been in touch with Bing at Navo Tours a number of times since September 2015 on the China crossing, Bing has been very helpful and responsive.

Thanks!

Mark

Kyrgystan-China-Pakistan (Karakoram) Oct/Nov 2016

Hi everyone
My boyfriend and I are planning to cross Kyrgystan-China-Pakistan via Karakoram in late Oct or early Nov 2016. I don't know if you'd be interested in teaming up to share the costs? We are already in touch with a tour operator through China (4 days) but have not made any fixed agreements yet. We are by Volkswagen van.
Best regards, Mia
