There was a post on TP several months ago, asking where exactly the hippy trail goes.
I dont know how to find that thread, or who posted it, and I cant remember which forum it was in, but I now know the answer.
The hippy highway goes through the following, turkey - iran - pakistan - india - nepal -china .

There were different routes as well, travelling from countries in Europe, also visiting countries in the middle east along the road, and ending in places like for example Kathmandu or Goa. But not necesarrily, as some went on to South East Asia and Australia. Peter Moore from Australia has wrote a book about it, as he travelled from London to Sydney overland (almost).

I doubt that China is/was part of it though, as during the hippy time, it was certainly not easy to visit the country and many hippies did not fancy going to communistic countries so much

Well, if the route from Tehran to Esfahan and back is part of it, I suppose I will.
