enlightens has indicated that this thread is about Turkey

Hello travelers, I was wondering what advice people could give me on making my travel plans from Turkey to India. I don't have a particular want to go through the middle east, for obvious reasons. However, I noticed that I may be able to route up through Georgia, Russia, Kazakhstan, and China, then down into India through Nepal. Any thoughts?

:)

yes! if you want to go from turkey, through russia, to get to india? i suggest, taking the tran-siberian!! it's a train that goes all the way across russia - there are a few lines, depending where you're turning, the trans-mongolian (goes to mongolia) - but you have to get off at a certain stop in russia - and the same goes for the trans- ok, i forget the name. but it goes through to china (from random russian stop, i don't know off the top of my head). google trans siberian, and you'll find more on it (there's this uk site that explains pretty well). but yes - down from china, to nepal, as you say, and onwards. that's my suggestion!

but this also may be the suggestion of a lunatic, since i love trains.

i'm considering that sort of route coming back from se asia.

good luck!!

Hullo. The site that Latarina is talking about is Seat 61. It is a mine of information about travelling overland, particularly by train.
