Post by Kate and Rob »

Hi Travellers

We are currently in India making our way up to Pakistan, for a Karakorum pass crossing April 2024 through China and into Kyrgzstan, in our own vehicle 4 x 4 roof top camping.

Looking for other travelers heading in same direction to share vehicle China transit, rather than Pakistan / Iran crossing.

Crossing summary:
Entering port: Kunjerab from Pakistan once pass opens post 1 April 2024
Exit port: Erkeshtam(Irkeshtam) or Torugart to Kyrgyzstan
Route: Pakistan – Kunjerab – Karakoram Highway – Karakul lake (View of
Muztagata) – Kashgar – Irkeshtam or Torugart – Kyrgyzstan
Duration: 4 days

what an epic route you've got planned! The Karakoram Highway through those mountains must be breathtaking. I've always wanted to transit through that part of China. Any chance you've got room for one more in your vehicle? No worries if not, but that timing could work well for me. Safe and scenic travels to you!

Hey! Small comment and maybe of no use to you, but:
I traveled from tajikistan to pakistan some months ago. Whilst the mountains are gorgeous, everything that had to do with China was super problematic. From getting a visa in your home country, to customs checks, wechat pay problems, broken atm’s, and transiting a complete police state where they ask your passport around any corner and you feel like being watched 24/7. This was the part of my overland to india trip that I hated the most. If I would do it again, I’d go through afghanistan to tajikistan, and in pakistan drive up to the karakoram and drive back to enjoy that. On the Chinese side there’s no freedom and only fences, fences, camera’s, gunmen, fences, cameras.
Also Afghanistan seems to be the safest it has been in 25 years and I heard good stories from several travelers.

Won’t push you to do anything, but I think it’s important to share my 5ct’s.

Hallo, we would be interested. We are traveling with our VW T5 Bus (No 4x4). We are currently also in India and it IS unfortunatly simply to expensive to travel from Nepal to Kirgisistan, so the Option to make it as short as possible through China makes sende to us. We heard to the kunjerab Pass from Pakistan towards China only opens at May 1st. Anyhow, maybe we can get connected via WhatsApp (+49 176 97891649)
