Crossing from Pakistan into China - China border side closed?

Postby Patpag » Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:36 pm

hi there,

We are planning our trip on the Karakoram Highway, crossing from Pakistan to China. Has anyone recently crossed the border there?
Someone who told us the border on the Chinese side was now closed, that one could not enter into China, because of the situation in Xinjiang.
The only time I know the border is closed is in winter given the weather and snow conditions. Anything else that's happening recently?

BTW, we already have a Chinese visa, already traveled overland from Mongolia into Xinjiang, and had no issue at the border crossing (Dec 2016).

Know situation changes quickly depending on which crossing and what happens politically, but I have not seen or read anything that would indicate problems right now.

Recent insights appreciated. Hoping to do the crossing this June 2018.
