Cycling Chinese section of Karakoram Hwy?

Is the road, border or area open and accessible to foreigners? Is there danger?

Cycling Chinese section of Karakoram Hwy?

Postby violetc » Mon Jun 12, 2017 5:18 am

Hi all,

Apologies if this has been covered - I couldn't find anything on it!

Does anyone know if it is currently possible to cycle from Tashkurgan to Kashgar on the Karakoram Highway? I am hoping to be able to do this in a week or so, but given the heightened security checks and regulations in Xinjiang I'm not sure if it's possible any more.

Also looking for travell buddies if anyone is interested - see my post in trip sharing part of forum 😁

Any info appreciated!!

Should be possible. Met an American cyclist there last year, and he reported no problem. And as far as I know, this hasn't changed since then.
