    Today I spoke with China embassy here in Zagreb, and they told me that it is very difficcult (but possibe) to enter China on a motorcycle.
    I was told that I need a some kind of letter of in invitation (LOI) from some sport club or something like that...
    It is very important to me to enter China, because there is no other way to Pakistan (Khunjerab Pass).
    One other solution is to enter Afganistan (Badakhshan Provinnce) from Tajikistan but I wolud rather took KKH.

    HELP please :)

    Hi you should look in the HUBB section of the Horizons Unlimited web site.
    There is quite a bit of information on traveling into China by moto.
    There are China travel agencies who will provide the letters or invite
    and visas search around or the web. I'll be applying for my papers to enter
    China by motorcycle soon and will be using a agent in the U.S.

    Right, go to www.horizonsunlimited.com for answers. The Caravan Cafe in Kashgar can help you out (reputable). So can David at www.stantours.com. If you are only passing through from Kyrgyzstan or Tajikistan and you spend as little time in China as possible, you can do it for under $1,000 and over a ton of red tape.

    Check out Dalins post a few posts down on this forum.
    He has found a travel service to arrange the required permits etc.
