    • Which one is better Irkestam or Torugart Pass

      by jonntexas Online Now Mar 6, 2005 at 8:12 PM

      From Bishkek, I want to visit Kashgar, China for one week or so. Would it be better to go through the Torugart Pass to Kashgar or through the Irkeshtam Pass in Osh?

      I heard that the Torugart does not always allow foreigners through, is that true? What are the necessary papers?

      However, I was planning on buying a round trip flight about90 from Bishkek to Osh, from Osh to Kashgar through the Irkeshtam and then back and fly back from Osh to Bishkek.

      Any other alternatives to get to Kashgar cheaply and safely??
