Does anyone know if it is possible to cross overland from Iran to Pakistan?

I'm planning an overland trip from London-Bali and fancy going the way through Iran and Pakistan and on into India.

Any ideas?

Hi, I am an iranian man, and as you can see in worl map, iran has a long border with pakistan (-snip-), however If you needed any help, contact me.

[ Edit: Either keep it nice or post elsewhere. Thanks! ]

A pleasure to make your aquaintance. That there is a long border between the 2 countries is indisputable but thank you for pointing that out nonetheless.

My question was more questioning the feasability of crossing said border and where one might undertake the crossing.

I appreciate your response but it has brought me no closer to understanding where I might safely and (relatively) easily cross the border between Iran and Pakistan as a solo, independent traveller. If anyone has any recent information that would be great.

As for your comment regarding the parenthood of Englishmen I have no comment but shall watch with interest how the moderators choose to handle the comment as it could perhaps be construed as unnecessary and even a little offensive.

Thank you again for replying :)

dear joey
I'am sorry if I made any inconvenience to you, I just wanted to relate a historical event!!!
However, in many places in iran there is not any good perspective about english peaple.
Baluchestan province is located in the border of Iran with pakistan . this province has a completely harsh climate and peaple there are often smugglers. even our president has been attacked several times there, So I don't suggest you to cross this area. If you ware intent to pass, don't stop very much. I think it would be safer to move across the coastline. there are even some beautifull seaports!!.
My sugessted path is: Tabriz, Tehran, Esfahan, Shiraz, Kerman, Bandarabas,Jask, Chabahar.
Have a good fancy trip!!!;)
