Leg 2 of 5 – Turkmenbashi, Turkmenistan to At-Bashi, Kyrgyzstan

After crossing the Caspian Sea from Baku to Turkmenbashi, its a race across the country to exit within the 5 days allowed with the transit visa. A potential visit to north Afghanistan is an option time permitting, at the same time as driving the Pamir highway. I need to be on the Kyrgystan border ready to cross into China on June 20th 2013. Here I will rendezvous with a group of fellow overlanders on bikes and a car to travel across China.

  • Visa’s Required – Several with multiple entries (for UK Passport)
  • Distance – 4500 miles
  • Time – 45 days

  1. Missing the Pamirs?!

    • Hi Will, I’m not planning on missing the Pamirs. I’ve got my eye on visiting North Afghanistan and driving the Pamirs as well. Just haven’t quite sorted the details yet. It would be great to meet up and discuss with you.
