October 2019, Crossing China from Mongolia to Laos

Hi folks,

we (Johanna & Malte) are now in contact with several agencies to organize a Mongolia - Laos itinerary (entering China at Bulgan/Takeshikenzhen) through mainly remote areas of China directly after the Golden Week (so approx. 8th October).
We don't want to make it a simple transit crossing, but also see unexpected beautiful landscapes of the "Middle Kingdom". Furthermore we don't want to rush and plan to make it ~ 35-40 days.

We already have some offers that are quite good and, regarding the pricing, not too far from other transit-itineraries like Kyrgyzstan - Nepal/Laos.

We are going to travel with a Mitsubishi L300 4WD van.

So, if you're interested in joining or just getting some idea of this journey, feel free to contact us via Mail (kommingang@gmail.com) or via this forum.

We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Johanna & Malte

Hey guys! I'm here in Europe heading East towards the stan countries and would love to know more about the cost of the trip and maybe some of the locations you guys plan on going. I don't think I'll make it there before October because my motorcycle broke here in the Czech Republic but such is life

Hi gnarlynate,

just send us a mail, so we can send you back the offers we got so far with itineraries, schedules and more information.

Of course we also have a preferred one yet...

Cheers,

Hey Malte,

Currently on my way to Mongolia on a motorcycle and interested in crossing China to SE-Asia! My riding buddy might be interested also.

Could you let me know if motorcycles are an option, timing and pricing?
Also, are you expecting to encounter snow or sand on the route?

Thx!

Hello wanderer78,

motorcycles are also an option, yes!

The timing so far is starting on 8th October, and crossing within 40 days.
I'll send you the exact itinerary plus pricing.

In October/November we'll have to expect some snow, since we'll have some tracks in > 4.000 m height.
I can't say, if there are sand tracks or not.
But so far the two cars joining are offroad vehicles, so just in case we'll be prepared.

If you have further questions, feel free to ask!
We're in close contact to the agency.

Cheers
Malte

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.
