- It seems like the train is running daily.
- According to report about Chinese domestic train info, from July 1 of this year, K9765/K9766 have been cancelled, while K9789/K9790 would extend its service to Khorgos from Urumqi. Not sure what that mean to the international train.

Hi everybody

I'm planning my trip between Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and China, and I'm trying to understand if the "new daily train" between Almaty and Urumqi is actually running. Do you have any update about that? Many thanks.

Hi All,
I'll try to take this train the next summer.
I tried to buy it online with success.
Do you think it could be possible to buy the ticket al the way from Almaty to Urumqi?
It is really a daily train?
Thanks
Regards
Gianni

Hi Gianni,

you'd have to go through a tour operator or buy it once in Kazakhstan for the Urumqi ticket. For latest timetable info see the sites suggested at https://caravanistan.com/transport/train/kazakhstan

Ticket office or via a local tour operator, just as with the other Urumqi train. You cannot buy train tickets to China online yet.
