Crossing China - From Tajikistan to Pakistan

Post by lweisner »

Dear Overlanders,
two friends and i want to do a trip with our motorbikes, next year from Germany to Australia. We have a rough idea of the route we want to take in our mind. It includes Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kirgisistan, Tajikistan, China, Pakistan, India, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia.
During our research we recognized that the border between Tajikistan and China and the Qulma-Pass are open.
Do you know if it's possible to use this route to cross China? Do the agencies we have to use even offer this trip or has anybody else already used this route and can share his experiences?
It seems really complicated to plan the crossing through China and i'm very glad and thankful for any tips or recommendations you can provide.
Best regards
Louis

Hi Louis,

we rode our motorbikes from Germany to Nepal this year, crossing all the countries I left in the quote.

The Qulma Pass works but will take as Long as Irkeshtam.
It is supported by various agencies.

In General i can not recommend China at all, wrecks your nerves, Kills your time, Takes a Lot of money & steals your personal Data.

We/I can give you tons of information reg. Border crossings, Guesthouse, fuel, visa... And, of course, Road conditions.

I suggest you read my posts reg. the borders to get an idea.

Just send me a PM, in German or English, and I'll try to help you as good as possible.

Enjoy the planning!
Dave

Hi Dave and Louis.

My first time on the site and found this post. I am looking to set off East in April and I expect to be going from Tajikistan to Pakistan as I make my way to Singapore.
This crossing from Tajikistan to Pakistan is challenging me.
I would appreciate any update from Louis (have you found an opening?)...and Dave, if you've any additional comments I'd really appreciate it.

Yet to work out the visa process fully but thinking of the visaguru...any better thoughts.

Thanks for any response...

Jeff
