Re: Road Khorog -Ishkashim - Murgab closed - does anyone have detailed info?

In the hubb was a word about a hard winter in the Pamirs (http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb/n ... amir-91406). So probably the Khargush pass is still in snow?

Re: Irkeshtam pass report – Kashgar, Xinjiang to Sary Tash, Kyrgyzstan

For that one, I've also a long crossing story (Link) in German from 2013.
In short. Border was closed for 9 days due to dragon boat festival. There was no possibility to get this information beforehand. After many action we managed to get over the border within 2 days.

Re: Internet data on Pamir highway

Yes, especially in eastern Pamirs Megafon is the best. You have an antenna even at Karakul, Rangkul and Shaymak.

Re: Cycling?

Hi we did Ishkashim-Sarhad in 2013 ( Blog ) The road is not allways the best and rivers are an issue (rise in the afternoon due to melting). At that time security was not an issue (beside rumors, that Talibs made an attempt to advance on Ishkashim, but were stopped early enough). The point is, that ...

Re: Chinese SIM Card

In 2013 I got one through a friend.
Like this year in Iran it was necessary, that someone with a registered adress buys the sim card, but then it was fine.$
Most probably in China it will be harder just to ask a stranger (like we did in Iran).
Great coverage even in quite isolated areas in Qinghai.

Re: Cycling the Pamir Highway from Osh to Dushanbe in June
