Re: South Iran

I would not recommend cycling from Busher to Bandar Abbas/Qeshm, as it is a long and boring road. You will only see oil industry or military.
But going to Qeshm is nice!

Re: Anyone currently in Iran ?

Ok, so clearly the situation has changed a bit since my last comment and when the question was asked.
Now there are riots again in the big cities. So, the question is, will it go over or will it intensify?

Re: Anyone currently in Iran ?

My neighbor just came back the weekend that you asked this question. He said it was all very relaxed. The political situation has of course not been improving since then, but I think it should still be okay. You will never have any guarantee, but in reality, it's usually not a big deal. And nobody w...

Re: Big Silk Road trips: Weather planning Q&A

Yes but it will still be cold. I think the best option, in terms of temperature, is to rush to Middle and Southern Iran. There it will be nice. Continuing to Paksitan is also possible. But central Pakistan and going into India at Amritsar, that will be quite cold too. There are advantages however. S...

Re: Tourists are able to drive in China right now

That is great. But I do wonder where you can travel freely. Which area of China you can just roam around in when you have a rental car. Because most border areas, especially in the West and South are pretty closed off. It will probably also depend on the company that rents you the car. They might al...

Re: Reliable Land Rover mechanic in Ulan bator

There is a Land Rover dealership listed in iOverlander in Ulan Bator. It is said they don't have much Defender parts, so I suggest you bring your own maintenance stuff. (anyway it is a good idea to carry all the filters with your for trouble down the road) There are very little amount of Land Rovers...

Re: China self-drive Q&A

They are not going to sign that convention, because they keep strict control over their border areas (usually involving minorities which they keep under control) and no free travel is allowed in a lot of those areas. And those border areas are where foreigners would come in with their cars. Once you...

Re: 4 days of ultrarunning in Iran

Well, what are you looking for? If you arrive in Tehran area, you can go North for nice green mountains. We really noticed seeing the green turn into desert (from North to South) when going over the highest point (which was not that high) However, the Caspian sea coast is not that interesting, so do...

Re: Report: Russian Tourist Visa in Ulaanbaatar

Hi Hester, that is a shame. Just like Loes, we got it there as well, a bit more than one year ago. It seems like the text has changed a bit on the website, not including Netherlands in the list of countries who don't need a residence permit.
