Kyrgyzstan > China > Nepal

Hi all,

Posting for a friend who isn't on here but looking for companions to join a possible crossing from Kyrgyzstan through China and into Nepal around September this year

I have been organising my own crossing through China to Pakistan so approaching the same companies with this request too and of course, sharing will reduce costs

Please message me here or email on ar.tm AT hotmail.com

Thanks

Hello -

I am interested to do this route and I have contacted few Chinese tour company's for details also.

When are you thinking to do this route?

I am a solo traveler and I have been eyeing this route on a motorbike for a very longtime now.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks,

Hi everyone, I am also very interested in this route. however, I found out that you can not easily drive through Tibet. What is possible is from Kyrgyzstan to the north of Pakistan and then from there to Nepal. I already have contact with a Chinese travel organization. They can arrange it for € 2500, - (guide, car for the guide etc.). So if we form a group, we can share the costs!

I also plan to be in Kyrgyzstan at the end of September. So it would be great if we could do this together.

Hi
I'm driving solo from Switzerland to Nepal, starting middle of April and I'll be doing the same crossing but around August 5 - 25, 2019. So in case somebody likes to do it the same time please send me a PM. I'm already in contact with a tour company and at the moment we are 3 (costs around 1200 Euro per person).
Save travels to you all,
Judith

Hi jasper - I am interested to pair up.


So far whoever I contacted in China is not really willing to organize this route and moreover i am looking to rent a motorbike in China but I am also looking onto other options if available.


Let me know how your plan get along and hopefully I can hit the road for this tour.



Thanks,
Imran

Hi,

I arranged my crossing at West China Expeditions. If you want to come, that's for sure. Send me a mail to: jasper-wiersema@hotmail.com

You have to pay a deposit and then on 8 October 2019 you can cross the border with me towards Pakistan.

We are trying to get even more people in a group to keep the costs down.

Like to hear from you!

Hi Jasper -

My travel dates are more towards August - September 2019 for traveling into China. I do not have any plans to cross over from Kyrgyzstan at the moment as I am not riding my own motorbike but I am looking to rent a motorbike within China. I am open to all the options and looking into how I can arrange motorbike in Kyrygzstan and if August-September does not work out mostly due to high cost than I will join your dates.

Please do let me know if you have any tips on how arrange a motorbike from Kyrygzstan to China. I am considering buying out a cheap motorbike if required.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks
