Re: Q&A: Door to Hell

Never heard of anyone registering or getting permits for places like Dashogus. If you look at the reports here, nobody has had any problems without them. Read the info here on Turkmenistan: this is what is known here.

Camping is probably a better way to get the attention of police than staying in a hotel or guesthouse or whatever.

Well, given that you need a guide to self-drive anywhere in China, I'm not sure why Tibet would be off-limits.
