Hi Folks,
I am just planing a big cycle trip this year from april till october 2016

I will start in Teheran, passing Turkmenistan, visit Bukhara and Samarkand, cycling the Pamir highway in Tajikistan, a small bit of Kyrgyzstan, entering China to Kashgar and going south on the Karakoram Highway into Kashmir, over the Khardung La pass, perhaps 2 month trough India, something down like: Jaipur, Jodhpur, Mumbay and Goa.

I still would like to have some infos regarding visa (where did You apply? In Your home country or on the way?), safety (also regarding the conflict between Pakistan, India and China in that region), stories about police and the possibility to cycle or not the Pamir and Karakoram Highway. I raed that other guys had to take a bus or get a police escort.

so if You hab been on that route recently, it would be great to hear from You
thanks for all
cheers Achim
