China Crossing (Pakistan—China—Kyrg) — Aug/Sept 2019

Postby swamp gum » Wed Jan 09, 2019 1:02 am

// EDITED April 14 with current info //

Hi overlanders,

In the process of organising a self-driving China crossing in mid-August 2019. (Khunjerab to Irkeshtam)
So far, there are 5-6 vehicles in our group, so the cost is getting quite acceptable!

We are leaning towards going with West China Expeditions, and it looks like it'll be around 1100 USD per vehicle.
PM me if you think this might link up well with your plans, or join our facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1990667254572822/

Jack

Interested! :) I am an Aussie rider on a CRF1000 and my partner will either be pillion or have her own motorcycle. We want to cross China to Pakistan end of August... and leave all of September for Northern Pakistan and Upper Himalaya Northern India... then October for Nepal.

If you are considering a similar route then a 'good to know' is that a few key passes close out for riders generally some time October... my brother and I have been caught out before riding into late October... and quickly realised that it's good to be Lower Himalaya or Nepal come October.

Be in touch!

Hey Swamp Gunn,

Solo motorbiker rider here.

These dates COULD work for me too. It's kinda hard to predict when I will be in Pakistan but I think I could aim for those dates.

How soon before we cross do we need lock in the dates? 1-2 months or ASAP?
What would approx costs be?
Do you have a Facebook/Whatsapp group with all the travellers for the crossing you can add me to?

Sorry so many questions (first time doing this)

Thanks!

Hi there,

No worries for the questions!

Fb group is a good idea — I've created one that you can join here and I'll invite the others now.

Most guides say they need 3 months lead time to organise all the permits, so would need to lock in by early May.

Join the group and let's keep in touch :)
