I can be a part of hitchhiking if you travel through India! But I can't be a part of you Hitch hiking in other countries.

Hi Sasha,

I don't want to send you to any war/danger zone, but I am not 100% sure what you hear on the news is 100% reliable. I went to Iraqi Kurdistan and cycled through troubled areas in Colombia, yes there was a lot of military but it was actually quite safe.
But I was kidnapped in Nicaragua, which is considered as the safest in Central America. So, you may never know...

If you want to do more research use wikitravel, travellers' forums and for more regional specific info:
your route would probably be: Border to Gilgit (in between trekking), Gilgit to Islamabad, Islamabad to Lahore (and to the border)
My advice would be: keep low profile, avoid big cities (you can just transit) and very crowded places, and listen to locals who know their own area.

I met travellers who went to Pakistan in 2009 and 2010, and they said it was all fine. Well, actually they all loved it.

In Xinjiang in China, you should be safe.
