I met some cyclists who didn't seem to have a guide.....Cannot answer the question. For the amount you have mentioned you c...

Re: Tourists are able to drive in China right now

Hi there, Just to get this right.... All of the posts above are referring to the temp. License. What about driving a foreign licensed vehicle? It'd be great to have a simplified process for both, maybe even the ability to drive a defined route (e.g. Murghab - Tashkurgan - Pakistan) without a 'guide'...

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. We haven't chosen Qulma because - same costs - same duration .... And, coming from Whakan / M41, we wanted to ...

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...
