The Torugart Pass- A How to Guide « New To Me

The Torugart Pass connecting Kyrgyzstan and China is billed as one of the most logistically difficult international borders to cross in the world.  There is a ton of paperwork, permits, invitations and checkpoints all the way from Naryn in Kyrgyzstan to Kashgar in China.  Without the right preparation, things can go terribly wrong

Follow our trip overland through Iran to Asia and back via China and the Stans in our 110 landrover defender.

We decided on a web page as a means of sharing maximum information with future overlanders, and in the hope of meeting up with other vehicles to share certain parts of the route for safety reasons-  particularly Zahedan (Iran) to Multan (Pakistan) road.

Bishkek/Almaty, Kazakhstan – ‘No way. … Where’d you get it?’ shrieked the fashionable young woman, shifting her Gucci purse over crossed and heeled legs to lean over and finger the dress flaunted before Kazakh girlfriends at an upscale joint in Almaty.

Traveling in Caucasus and Central Asia

Traveling in Caucasus and Central Asia

I wanted to establish a blog that can capture my impressions of the world I live in. This will mostly relate to the places I visit. The inspiration for Hakloot, the blog name, comes from the Hakluyt Society.

It was founded in 1846 in the UK with the aim to advance the knowledge and education by the publication of scholarly editions of primary records of voyages, travels and other geographical material.

The Hakluyt Society is named after Richard Hakluyt (1552-1616), the celebrated collector and editor of narratives of voyages and travels and other documents relating to English interests overseas. His name was probably pronounced “Hack-loot”, an earlier member of the family having been recorded as an MP in 1304 under the name of Hakelute, rather than ‘Hackle-wit’, and the family being of Welsh extraction and not Dutch, as is sometimes supposed.
