Have you tried calling the Almaty bus station as they recommend here on Carivanistan? (Tel: 230 25 29, 276 26 44, 276 26 77)

We are in Bishkek waiting for our Chinese visa and are also trying to plan ahead but our phone can't call to another country.
We will probably go to Kazakstan next week and will call and ask then. But if you call, please tell us what they said :)

Hi guys, we have tried but our Kyrgyz phone doesn't work for outbound calls. We will check again from Kazakhstan but our research so far seems to show that it will in all likelyhood be open after Oct. 3.

P.S.

I think we have actually been riding one day behind you! We have heard from the Swedish cyclist you met that you were just one day ahead. We are also in Bishkek and are sorting out the Chinese visa. We visited your blog (very nice blog by the way) and we are a couple from Denmark, doing exactly the same route to Singapore haha. If you guys wanna hook up while in Bishkek or further on, let us know on [email protected] - our blog is www.sailingthesolidsea.com

We plan to enter Kazakhstan around Sept. 27th/28th and enter China around Oct. 9th

Heja Sverige!
