Re: How / what are you doing?

Hi Steven, Saule & fellow travellers ;) Hope you're healthy just like I am. What I am doing? Besides fixing our place, trying to teach the kids their school stuff, being lazy & doing nothing.... Not much. Unfortunately had to cancel family vacation. Still wonder if I am going to loose my job. Should...

Re: Kulma Pass self-drive?

Hi Reinhard, Last year we crossed China, Irkeshtam - Pakistan. Anyway, while we were getting quotes we gave also asked for Qulma pass. At least one agency ( tibetmoto ) said it is possible.

Re: Long term parking Pakistan/India

Hi there,

No idea regarding Pakistan parking.

In India you are not allowed (entry with Carnet de passages/2018) to park your car for more than 6 month without a special permit.

Unfortunately I do not know where to get this permission.

Safe travelling!

Re: Better way to cross tajikistan to pakistan in self motorbike?

Hi Daniela (& husband :)), we did more or less what you are planning to do last year (Germany - Ukraine - RUS - KZ - UZB - TDJ - KIR - PRC - PAK - IND - Nepal). It is possible to cross China, but you need an agency and get a visa (with fake itinerary). Agency provides (or should provide) all documen...

Re: Buy motobike Khazakstan Almaty

Hi there,

Last year I met an Australian guy who bought a cheap (sth around 3000$) Chinese dirtbike in Almaty.
He rode through the 'stans with it.
If it helps you I could try to get in touch with him to get the details.... Just drop me a pm.

Enjoy the preparation...

Re: Qalai Khumb accommodation Q&A

Take the first street to the right after crossing the bridge. The guesthouse is located about 50 metres, right side. You can even see it on the pic on t...
