I was basically meant to be going there right now as I'm in China but I'm going to be delayed and I doubt I can make it atm, as border crossing closes really soon. What my plan is now is to travel China for another month then Nepal, India, Myanmar, more India and then up through Pakistan to China via the Karakoram Highway.

My question, I was goign to buy a motorbike in China and then take it into Pakistan but time wise I can't do this, and to bring a bike into China results in having to place down a 150% deposit, on the worth of the bike. Has anyone successfully hitchhiked this from the Pakistan side? I'm planning to do in regardless in March/April, I was just curious.

Many times. Its always fun. April/May would be a good season if you want to cross over to China. That bike idea isn't bad either. Gives you more freedom and flexibility.

If u need more info, don't hesitate to ask.
