Sorry didnt come back and look here until today
New trip date
1-24 July 2006
Guided with Jon Otto and with summitclimbhttp://summitclimb.com/mustagh_ata.htm
I have been chasing fares to Beijing and was aware of Malaysia airlines via Kuala Lumpa but direct is nicer. Qantas will prob have specials also. Atm they have Beijing ret $999 inc taxes but not out as far as my dates. They will release fares soon.
China Southern also has good fares but not that far out yet. They go via Ghanzhou to Beijing and also fly onto Urumqi and then to Kashgar. They also have a good fare to Kashgar and offer discounts for flying all sectors with them.
I was also considering via Islamabad but logistically may be to difficult and takes 4-5 days by bus
Here is a map, you can enlargen the local maphttp://www.diy.bluesheeptravel.com/tran ... ng/map.htm
Any of you guys also interested. Would be nice to have a couple of Aussies as it seems hard to link up for these journeys.
