Lhasa, Tibet to Kashgar May 2013
Posted November 25th, 2012 - 7:46 am by from Edmonton, Canada (Permalink)
I'm looking for American travel partners, cheap/good tour operators, and general travel advice for a overland trip from Lhasa tibet to Ali, to Kashgar in May of 2013 via the Xinjiang-Tibet Highway.
My preference would be to hitch the route, but from what I've read this seems next to impossible.

There are also some posts mentioning construction road closures till 2013, does anyone know where I can find some more information on this? (when is construction supposed to be complete?)

Anyone have an idea of the cost pp for this tour?

I am male, 26, American, Monoglot, and a relatively pleasant travel partner (so long as there is tea available)

I'm going to walk the Kora around Mount Kailash same month. I find out that it easier to get there from Nepal, Katmandu.
