China Kyrgystan border crossing Tortugart pass

Postby julievanloockie » Thu Mar 01, 2018 5:12 pm

Hy everyone.

We plan crossing the border from China to Kyrgystan by bike, we would like to cross the Tortugart Border.
Has anyone experience with this crossing?
It seems to be a little bit dificult crossing it to go into China,
is it easier to do it the other way? (China into Kyrgystan)

The Torugart pass requires a special permit and guide. I've never heard of anyone doing this by bike (and the cost for a vehicle is around $400), but it may be possible if you find a company willing to support you doing it by bike.

Actually, the page on the Torugart Pass here at Caravanistan answers all your questions: ... gart-pass/
