Re: Karkara valley (Kegen – Tup/Kensu) border

Does anybody know if this border closes on weekends?

Re: Bus from Urumqi (China) to Almaty (Kazakhstan)

Hi, I can speak Chinese and still I was unable to use 12306(dot)com due to problems with the app. Also, I was told I need to collect the ticket in train station in person too... All in all, I think trying to buy a bus ticket might be the best.

Bus from Urumqi (China) to Almaty (Kazakhstan)

I live in China, Xian. So today I have been told that to buy a train ticket from Urumqi to Almaty, I need to buy it directly in Urumqi... which sounds impossible for me right now.
Do anybody now if there is a bus between Urumqi and Almaty?

Thanks!
